I think that's done in post processing. The telescope sees in infrared, which is not what we see with our eyes. I think they 'translated' the infrared imagery into what you'd see in the visible spectrum. Perhaps they derived the different colors you see from the various infrared wavelengths that were used, but I really don't know how this stuff works. Just guessing, really.

I believe NASA photos are usually treated before being released to the public

New European Vega-C rocket successfully launched.
ESA’s new Vega-C rocket has completed its inaugural flight, placing main payload LARES-2 – a scientific mission of the Italian Space Agency ASI – into its planned orbit. Six research CubeSats from France, Italy and Slovenia flew as secondary payloads. The launch caps a multi-year effort by ESA, prime contractor Avio and industrial partners in 13 ESA member states to build on the heritage of its predecessor, Vega.

Maybe not as cool as spacex reusable launch systems but still quite important for European launch capabilities, especially now that Russian rockets have become unavailable because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. (Most missions with the Russian Space Agency have been cancelled or suspended, including the ExoMars mission.)

Russia on Tuesday announced it will withdraw from the International Space Station (ISS) project after 2024, signaling an end of an era in one of the last remaining areas of cooperation between Russia and the United States.

Russia’s newly appointed head of space agency Roscosmos announced the decision in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, saying that the agency will instead focus on building its own orbital station.

“We will fulfill all our obligations to our partners, but the decision to leave this station after 2024 has been made,” the space agency chief Yuri Borisov said.
