Great tutorial for CS6! Even though I've been applying textures for several years now, you just taught me a new (and easier) way to do it! Thank you!!!

Hi Kim,
I still can't believe I won Tracy's course. Thank you so much for this fabulous opportunity.
And, a big thank you for all these lovely textures that keep our creativity alive and running.
You are a true blessing to so many of us just like Joy (above) says.
Hugs from the sunny Sunshine Coast of B.C., Canada

I have been following your blog and I am also a member in the Test Kitchen group for about 6 months. I truly appreciate your attention to detail, sharing your textures, and your easy to follow teaching style. I am a visual artist, have a new camera to bring that medium into my creative world, and work on background visuals using photoshop for worship services as my day job. I always look forward to your posts! Thanks again!

H Kim -
Just wanted to tell you how much I like your new picture in the welcome corner - You look so cute!
August 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarol Albers
Another great tutorial Kim!
I am wondering why sometimes you copy the original image before doing anything, and
other times you don't. Can you elaborate for both ways?

These are completely beautiful sweet you, but what's really even all the more beautiful is that gorgeous new profile pic of YOU! Gorgeous!!!! Gorgeous I tell you. xo


I love California too. Come here to San Diego anytime and I will show you around!! Happily so. :)

I'd like to say a big thank you to you also Kim. I've learnt so much from your eCourses. You really have a gift with teaching - not everyone can do it but you really make it easy to understand and remember. Thanks again!
