I have version 1.3.0 adn when I upload an image or should I say certain images show up as Black and white images until you click on the actual image then it shows up in color.

They're not actually black&white, but with reduced colors. This effect comes from the webhost upgrading th GD version on your server.
Here's what you do
  • log in as admin
  • admin mode
  • Admin tools
  • phpinfo
  • search the page for a GD section: it should read 2.x
  • go to coppermine config
  • For "Method for resizing images", select "GD version 2.x"
  • "Save new configuration" - you now have set coppermine to use GD2
  • Upload a new pic and check the thumbnail: it should have proper colors now
  • To re-build your existing thumbnails and intermediate pics, go to admin tools, choose "Update thumbs and/or resized photos", select the album that has wrong thumbnails in them and submit. Repeat this for all albums that have "wrong" thumbnails
