Is it possible to colour/shade part of a jpeg and still see text underneath?

Layers to the rescue!

1. Add a new layer and set the layer blend mode to multiply

2. Color whatever you want to your heart's content

You can use layer opacity also. Multiply will work but may change the colorization if the page isn't pure white (if that matters)

Put a square selection above the room you want on a new page and fill it with any color. Go to layer property and reduce opacity to half or anything you like.
