I have never used that software. Photoshop has many ways to select 
areas within a picture.
If you can find something that will select an area based on color or 
value you can manipulate whatever is
in that selection. It is not as easy as scanning a photo and changing 
colors. Once you have selected each
value and added a color into each of them, you can flatten the entire 
image and use it however you like.

anybody know Micrographics Publisher ?
