I was wondering what program I can use to take the black and white pics and lets say add color to an item in the pic, but the rest of the pic is black and white? Any advice or help would be great.

You can buy Photoshop or you can download a free program called GIMP.

you can also download a free trial of photoshop

I think the easiest way is the download the trial of photoshop CS3.

Make your bottom layer (background layer) color
Add a 2nd layer.
Turn 2nd layer black & white
Add a mask to the 2nd layer
Paint on Mask to reveal bottom color layer
