I am trying to add color to a b/w photo. I have chosen the color I want to use but when I begin paint on the photo, the brush does not use the specififc color, but instead , almost a very pale tint of the color.

many thanks to anyone who can advise

Check the options for the brush tool - opacity, fill, blend mode, etc.
