How to convert B/W images to Colour without Photoshop

Hi All

I am hoping someone can advise me. I am trying to convert my capture of Jupiter to colour.

Reading up, there is a lot of mention about using Photoshop. Does anyone else have any other software suggestions?

Note: I have resized the image for this forum.

I use PaintShopPro - a freebie with a computer mag!
It handles layers, masks and RGB channels...worth finding a copy to trial...
