This guide provides instructions on how to make color pictures using images downloaded from the WISE archive. An overview of what digital images and FITS files are is followed by a discussion on the basic process of how gray scale images are adjusted, assigned color, and added together to create a color picture. Five different image processing programs are provided to the users, along with the pros and cons of each program, and links for installing and using each one. There is also a review of the various image artifacts that may be found in WISE images.
