Your website is wonderful. I've subscribed for your textures. I've looked at some tutorials. Just great, thanks for your generosity!

I've been looking for-ev-ah for someone to help me with photoshop, and then a few weeks ago someone sent me the link to your site. Oh. my. gosh! Thank you so much for posting so many free tips and textures. I've played around with photography for a long time as a hobby, but this puts a whole new spin on it for me. I'm so excited to learn more, I've signed up for the free class, and hope to keep moving along with the others.

Love all of the textures too!

Hi there Kiki,

Thank you soooo much for this real easy lesson in photoshop. I was struggeling with the watermarks...But you've done a great wonderful super duper job to explain here to me.

Still there is one question I have for you,...where did you get the flower stamp? I see you got lots of beautiful ones. I work with CS4 so it might come with the program and not be in mine. I would love to hear from you if you can possibly find the time.

You also can find me at blogger: Barefoot from Heaven
Wonderful hugs Dagmar

Ohhh no what did I doooo call you Kiki while your name is Kim...I'm soooo sorry. It's just that I know a Kiki Klassen (she's kind of famous here were I live).
Again I hope you don't mind too much,...I'm so sorry. What a first impresion I made here.

I just watched several mini tutorials and I am so excited to start trying new things !!! I have been using picnik to do layers but with PSE9 I can see I will have so much more control over the processing...hope I can remember all the steps!! Thanks so much Kim for your wonderful donation!!

Thank you Kim. You have a very clear way of showing what must be done, and, thank goodness, a wonderful voice that is gentle on the ear!

THANK YOU!!!! I have to say - this was simple...... and all I wanted to do! I wasn't able to find any information until now on how to apply textures. I found things like clipping masks, creating two thousand layers....... and opacity stuff and more words I haven't got a clue. ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS apply a texture and YOU just show'd me. Thanks again....... I"M SO HAPPY >>>>>> gotta go and try this out.

GREAT tutorials! I've never used textures before but want to start adding them to some of my floral images. Thanks for making it SO easy to learn! New subscriber!

Oh my gosh! I stumbled on your site through a series of late-night clicking a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know how excited I am to have found YOU! lol! I have been wanting to learn so much more about PSE for sooo long, but everything makes it seem sooo complicated! As a mother of a 3 yr old, a wife, and a part-time worker, complicated is not what I need! :0) Sooooo----long story short-----thank you so much for your site, and the generosity of the free tutorials---I will be coming back to them again, as well as hopefully taking one of your "full-size" courses soon!
Thanks again!

Hi Kim,

Thanks so much for your great posts and tutorials! I found you via an online workshop by Shwe Khit. I am learning to use CS2 slowly but surely - and am heading over to your Photoshop e-course. Loved the Pumpkin Grunge video and look forward to each newsletter so much!
Thanks again! xo =)

Hi :)

I am relatively new to digiscrapping, but really new to textures and overlays. You teach how to do it so well that I'm not afraid anymore to try them out. Thank you so much for that.
I love all of your tutorials and your site in general.
Your work makes me motivated, thanks again!
