I used to have a photo editing app that would allow me to duplicate the image, display both simultaneously (after transforming one into b&w) and then using a 'clone' tool re-enable coloring only on certain parts of the photo.

Anyone aware of a free app that can accomplish something like this?  Running Vista.  I'm using google's picasa, but I don't think I can do it there...

Sounds like the old version of PaintShop Pro.

The new one has a tool similar to what you are asking...

Sadly, this one will cost you.

Good memory - I believe that was it.
Found another one in the drawer that I might play with, but was curious if you knew of anything either native to vista or a good, free, and easy to use...?

The name sounds silly but there is an open source program called gimp.
http://www.gimp.org
On the website, under features, there is a sample image of something similar to what you described above - with a black and white picture detailed with some colour.  The site has links to plug-ins and forums for assistance which may come in handy.  As for its simplicity, you've got me.  Looks similar to other modern image managers such as Photoshop.
Can't hurt to try right?  :-)
