Are there any reasonable priced software that will converting B&W Photos to Color?

If so what are they and do they do a good job? Thank You

Do you consider $29.00 reasonable? If so, give this a look:

Saw another program for $97.00! Ridiculous! For way less than that you can get a full-featured image editor that will let you do a lot more than colorize B/W photos!

Do you already have an image editing program? If you do, you might be able to colorize using that. It would probably be a more manual process than with using a dedicated program like the ones mentioned above, but on the plus side, it would be free. If you have an editor, check out any Help files that come with it and see if colorizing is mentioned anywhere. If it isn't, go to the product website and review their literature or contact a product rep from the site and ask. If there is a user forum you could find out there. If the program can do colorization, a user forum would know of any existing tutorials or someone might just tell you how to do it.

I'm pretty sure that Paint Shop Pro will do this (though it would be a manual process, as PSP is a general editor, not a dedicated product), and I've heard that you can get older versions of this as freeware, though I don't know if the free versions are still available. There should be many available free tutorials and numerous user forums.
