Not one tutorial on This? And Its PK? This Is For PS.
1. Scan your picture Into Your Computer
2. Open A Document the Size Of Your pic As A RGB and paste the image into the file.
3. Go to Channels And Duplicate the Blue Channel.
4. invert the blue Copy Channel. make Sure Its below the other Blue Channel.
5. Select the Copy Blue layer (CTRL+Right Click)
6. Go to you first layer this time. Delete the image, make a new layer and fill with black.
You now have your image off of that white paper!
Now you can fill it easily!
I usually just use that little button that selects all the white and then delete it, works like a charm.

The problem with doing it with the wand is if you don't have a crisp line... if you don't have the crisp line the wand will leave small off white areas around the lines. which isn't good.
The other way you can do it is to set the outline layer to Screen... then you can create layers underneath and colour without deleting the white on your outline layer :) (at least I think its screen... pretty sure it is. But I'll check when I get home)
Of course the problem with doing it this way is that you don't have the seperate outline that you can later colour, as I colour my outlines a darker shade of the colour I used between the lines. (I hope this makes sense)
I wasn't talking about the wand but the button on the lower left somewhere (I don't have PS installed at the moment so I can't check what it's actually called) on the channels palette.

This site has the best lineart isolation tutorial I know of: http://www.wildpixels.com/brasshorse/development1.htm
It works very well.
I also sometimes duplicate the final layer, when the process is done, and run a diffuse filter on the bottom one. Tone down the opacity, and this should smooth the lineart somewhat.

I concur to above stated button-use. Works for me...

I've got photoshop 7. It doesn't seem to be there. Is there something i'm missing? Yes other than the button!

I just set the layer mode to "multiply" and colour under it. Unless you want to colour the lines themselves there's no reason to do anything else imo.
Hotaru: Did you click the Channels tab at the top? 'cos if you're in the Layers tab you won't see it. :)

Yup it's there. Thanks!

For anyone else that reads this in the future, it's the button in question is the dotted circle at the bottom of the channels tab labelled "load channel as selection".
I also found it helpful to select the lineart layer, the go
Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay...
and select jet black (or whatever suits your image) as the overlay colour.
