Friday Fun

 Photoshop Elements Fun

"Before" the Magic!

Studio time for art has been very limited this past week. However, my sweet friend Lynn (Her Creative Spirit) introduced me to Kim Klassen's blog a few weeks ago, and I signed up for Kim's FREE Skinny-Mini Photoshop E-course immediately. (Click here to go there!)

Having taken a few e-courses in the past, I approached Kim's class with apprehension. After all . . . how good could it be if it's free, I asked myself - on the other hand, what could I loose? I honestly have to say that I was hooked after the first video. My plain pics were beautifully transformed by using a few easy techniques.

"Before" the Transformation!

Kim is an awesome teacher, and her lessons are short and to the point. Best of all . . . the price is more than right! If you're into photos and Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, sign up for Kim's next free e-class. (Click here to go there!) You won't regret it!

I love what you did with your photos! Yes, photoshop has some amazing features (I work with Photoshop for over 10 years now, so I don't think I need the course...) Your freebie is a fun one today! Love it! Thanks!

These could be cards--I love them! I don't have Photoshop, but I would love to learn--a little scary for me if it involves the computer....maybe in my future...:)

If your photos are examples of what you learned in Kim's class, then I'm sold. They really look vintage. I usually just go to Picnik editor but I will certainly check out her class.

Thanks for sharing this and to Lynn for letting you know. Not sure how to use the old gents picture...yet..

Kathy said...

Kim definitely does some cool stuff. Love the pumpkin pics you did. That photo reminds me of Red Skelton for some reason. Thanks for the freebie! Happy Halloween!! - Kathy

Thanks for the great freebie, Terri. I'm sure we all have loads of ladies but very few gents so this one is most welcome.

I am so sorry I have been MIA from your blog. I am going to sign up for the free PS class. I don't have the latest PS, but I might be able to work with what I have. Your photos are stunning, and I have always wanted that layered look. How sweet of you to pass on the info. And I love your freebie, too. Hope you had a great weekend.
