I recently purchase photoshop elements 2020 but am very disappointed with the program . I bought the program because I wanted to make my B&W pictures into colored ones. The program falls short in changing the entire picture into colored. It leaves parts of the picture b&w and with no way to improve it. I found  " My Heritage " web site offering this feature with there ancestery  search ( free for 2 weeks ) that puts photoshop program look second rate .

I had Photoshop Elements and upgraded to the newest version in March 2021.  I had saw a colorize tutorial on You Tube and it looked so easy.  First problem - that was Photoshop 2021 and not PS Elements.  My toolbar looked nothing like that on the tutorial.  Next problem was that PS 2021 is a monthly subscription only.

I explored my Elements package, had done the file conversion and ran into the brick wall..  I could not find colorize at all.

This past weekend I explored Elements and found the Colorize selection.  I selected one of the 4 tinted offerings and then proceded to colorize different aspects of the 100 year old scanned photo.  I am pleased with the result.

My question is this is a work in progress and I saved the file - when I open the file, how do I navigate back to the colorize pallet directly withour going through Enhance>Colorize Photo which will re-tint the photo I am working on?

When you reopen the already colorized photo, do not choose one of the presets.  Instead, go straight to the Manual mode of the colorization editor.
