- The latest Instagram Updates and Changes
- Photoshop tips & tricks

Photoshop sat on my computer for years…. Every time I opened it… I became immediately overwhelmed.
I felt guilty… I spent a lot of money on the program and I just could not wrap my head around it.
Then one day…. as I was scrolling through Flickr (this was long before Instagram and all the magical iPhone apps)….. I came upon a photo that completely captivated me…. It was earthy and organic….with the most fabulous filter effect.
I wasn’t sure how they made it look so magical…but I needed to know more!
After a little digging…. I discovered that magic was a texture (or 2) made possible in Photoshop.
That was it…. I had to learn Photoshop.
I figured out just enough to open Photoshop and give textures a try. Adding a layer of texture … changing the blend mode…..and oh my gosh…..
I’m pretty sure I woo-hooed right then and there…. my photo was completely transformed.
That was the beginning of my Photoshop love….. which eventually evolved into Lightroom Love.
I resisted Lightroom for the longest time.
I could do everything I needed to do, right inside Photoshop. (or so I thought.)
Why would I want to use Lightroom?
But…. Oh my word….. I can’t imagine my life without it…
Mind blowing amazing…..
The workflow, the power, the possibilities, the presets…. still continue to blow my mind (daily).
Talk about magical!
I want everyone to have and love Lightroom too.
Enter The Lab…..
a safe place to learn Lightroom (first)…. with a toucha Photoshop….. for the things you can’t do (or do as well) in Lightroom.
like adding texture and text….
making simple graphics…. magic healing, object removal… stop motion videos, animated gifs….and so on.
If you already have Lightroom, wanna learn Lightroom, or keep up to date with the latest updates and changes…. The Lab will be a safe place to learn and grow.
is a brand new membership space…….focusing on the techy side of photography and processing.
Whether you’re just getting started, or full-on IN……
The Lab will be a fun place to learn …..and learn some more….
Lightroom, Photoshop, plus lotsa extra techy tips…. including some fav iPhone APPS.
Kim Klassen’s Lightroom tutorials have been amazing! Kim explains everything simply and clearly and in a way that I could totally understand. I learned to navigate Lightroom, organize my photos and then, after much hesitation, I started shooting RAW format and applying Kim’s presets. That was a big jump for me and I am kicking myself for not diving in sooner. Applying Kim’s presets takes a photo that is special and moves it to bringing tears to my eyes and making my heart sing. Seriously. -Rhadona Sedgwick
What to Expect inside The Lab

- an iPhone/iPad or iPod Touch if you like to geek out on the techy stuff.
no matter our age or stage …
the techy side of photography does not have to be difficult.
I’ve helped thousands of students….fall in love with Lightroom and Photoshop and never look back.
Some at first resisted…some almost gave up…..
but they kept the faith, trusted the process and fell in love with the possibilities.
I seriously did not think I could “do” Lightroom, but Kim proved me wrong and now I can’t imagine working without it.
