I love this question and the answers, however I cannot do this because i dont understand. I do have a crosstitch programme But following the instructions is difficult, it's a whole new language.

Add color by using an image editor. Open the picture then modify the color scheme.

Look for Paint.net (open source image editor)

Use a cross-stitch program and import the image.

Alternatively, import the image into the cross-stitch program and assign colors to the greyscale

look for KG-Chart-LE (free cross-stitch prgram)
