    Photoshop - I think

    select Layers then New Adjustment Layer and then Hue/Saturation
    when the box appears turn the saturation fully down -100

    you now should have a total B&W pic

    you need to let the colour be seen from the Background layer below

    select the brush tool and pic a brush and adjust its diameter to suit the size of the item you want to have in colour.... make sure the opacity is set to 100%

    Now just go over the bit of the pic you want in colour and left click....
    the brush tool will now remove the part of the B&W layer you have the brush on.
    if you make a mistake just click the B&W box to reverse the colours and the when you hold down the left button you can put back the B&W with your brush.


    Obviously you have to start with a colour image
