To make color from several grayscale images.
You have to open up 3 images, taken through different filters.
The is a FAQ on the Cassini Website that tells you what wavelength each filter is.
Each images is really the LEVEL of brightness in that particular wavelength.
You assign each image to a Color channel, for simplicity I use the RGB channels

So real quick again:
open 3 images
Make sure they are Grayscale.
Open your "channels" toolbar"
make sure the CHANNELS tab is selected.
There is an arrow at the right, click it.
The menu will have "merge channels" as a choice. Select that.
Then you can select RGB as the method.
You'll now have three dropdowns,
one for R, one for G and one for B..
Assign an image to each one...
AND Viola!

U2U me if you need more help!

One quite important task is to identify the right picture for each channel.
Here's how it's done with raw images of Titan:

First of all it's quite sure that titan is red. This means that the
reddish colors show darkest in blue channel, brighter at green
and brightest at red. This is why you have to observe which of
the similar pictures at cassini-site appear darkest, lightest and
between. When you've done it and downloaded the images,
just add them to the corresponding channels.

This link explains it graphically. If you still feel puzzled.

Maybe fogging was a bad term, hazing might be better.
Nontheless, here is a press release with more information.

Hey anyone see that image of one of Saturn moons I forget which one it looked familiar like earth it had shades of blue white and what moon was the spacecraft supposed to send a probe to check it out.

On Nasa web site under cassini area it shows a picture of Rhea that looks earthlike. It does not look that way in any other picture Ive found though.

Titan is were the probe Hyugens will go to in January 05.
