    I occasionally get a monochromatic image, e.g., something in shades of
    blue that I'd like to change the base color to *exactly* match some
    key color in another image.

    My thought is I'd change the image to black and white, then apply a
    Tint, but Photoshop CS3 doesn't allow specifying the Tint using RGB
    values but provides a tint slider instead.

    Is there a way to color the image with a specific RGB value?

    Choose an RGB value as your foreground color, then use Edit->Fill. In
    the Fill dialog. choose Mode: Color. Easy!

    Define a duotone using your desired RGB value, and apply it to your
    grayscale image.

    Use the color sampler tool. It's with the eyedropper. Find a reference
    point on the image (like something that would be gray if it wasn't
    tinted blue in your example). Click there with the sampler tool. The
    Info window will now show the RGB values for that spot. Make an
    adjustment layer for color balance or levels or curves or whatever, and
    you'll see the new value in the Info window, next to the old value.
