converting greyscale to color?
I know there is a colorize feature but that only uses 1 color gradient... is there any other way to make a greyscale image color?

Depends what kind of coloring you are after... arbitrary colors? Or trying to recover the original colors?

RE: converting greyscale to color?
So you want some coloring that looks real... try painting over using paint tools (bucket-fill, paintbrush or airbrush) in "Color" mode (this keeps the "value"). This produces an old postcard look. For best results, do not use colors that are too saturated.
