For anyone who may want to try the "Chimkudo Smoke Colorizing Method" I've put together a little tutorial to help you on your way, including a starter image for those who may not have a smoke image to play with.
While this was done using Photoshop the same effect can also be accomplished, with slightly different steps, in Paint Shop Pro.

Starter Image

Step one. With the image open in Photoshop go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate

Step two. Now go to Layer > Fill Layer and select Gradient.

Step three. The New Layer dialog box will open, select Overlay from the Mode dop down box and click OK.

Step four. The Gradien Fill dialog box will pop up with the default single color gradient selected. Click on the drop down for the gradient.

Step five. You'll be presented with an assorment of multi color gradients to select from. Choose one, you can change you mind later. Click within the Gradient Fill dialog box to close the selection table without closing the Gradient Fill dialog.

Step six. Now you can change the angle of the gradient, its strength and even whether you want to reverse the color scheme. Click OK and merge the Fill Layer down.

Voila, your final image
