How can you add color to a black and white photo?

I have tried several programs and none of them let me put color on a black and white picture, the color palette becomes greyscale and I can't add color to it.  Does anyone know how to do with with paint shop pro or photoshop or any other program?

RE: How can you add color to a black and white photo?

First you need to increase the color depth of the image: Colors Menu -> Increase Color Depth -> then choose an option.

You should then be able to select colors. You can automatically add color to the picture by selecting Colors -> Colorize, or Colors -> Adjust -> Red/Green/Blue

Hope this helps.
