    After I have converted a photo to line art (Black and White 1-bit
    depth), can I convert it to full color but where all the black pixels
    get turned into a color of my choice, like pure red? or blue? or
    yellow?
    I would want all the white pixels to stay white, of course. If there
    is a way, could someone show me which tabs and options it would be
    under? littleberry

    Good morning,
    Is you ultimate for to designate a spot color in order to color
    separate and what application will you ultimately be working in?

    Change to mode RGB, then use Replace Color (replace black with what you
    like.) You can also try Mode Duotone if you like.

    There are many ways to do it. The one that is most appropriate depends
    on what you intend to do with the image.

    Do you intend to print the image professionally on a printing press
    using a specific color of ink? If so, you use Image->Mode->Duotone.

    Do you just intend to have the image as a computer graphic which you can
    print on a color printer or see on the screen, but that you are not
    going to print on a printing press using a spot ink? If so, you have
    many options. Convert the image to RGB, then use the Replace Color
    command; or use Image->Adjust->Selective Color and choose Black in the
    popup menu, then move the sliders to achieve the desired color and
    brightness; or use Image->Adjust->Curves; or use Image->Adjust->Hue and
    Saturation in "Colorize" mode...there are other ways to do this as well.
