How can I change the solid black to another specified color

[Quote:] I am trying to find out how to do something in Photoshop. Is it possible to take an object, that basically a solid black line art image, in a jpeg file, and change the solid black to another specified color?
Start a new layer over the line-art layer
Fill the layer with the desired color.
In the Layers Palette Blending modes pull-down, select:
* Linear Dodge
and the image will take on that color.
Experiment with the other blending modes to see if it can be improved upon.
Once you've achieved the look, simply flatten and save.
This is a very basic technique, but it's just one of hundreds you could have picked up in Ben Willmore's Adobe Photoshop CS2 Studio Techniques
So, If you're ready to go from blindly following step-by-step instructions to "Aha, I finally GET Photoshop!" this is the place to start. In these pages, you'll get, crystal clear, and in-depth understanding needed to master Photoshop's most essential features.
