True Confessions

Dear friends,

How are you? I have a confession to make..... are you sitting down?

I've fallen in love.... seriously in LOVE with......
Adobe Lightroom...... I resisted for the longest time.... thinking I could never stray from my oh-so-loved Photoshop.... my life changer..... gift giver....  world rocking companion..... But, slowly, gently I found my way to Lightroom...... And over time...I fell in LOVE....

The best part.... my big discovery....and what I'm dying to share with all of you..... I don't have to choose...... they are perfect partners.... companions.... I/we can love and need them both. My creative world is even dreamier now..... seriously ... dreamier..... and oh my.... much easier too!

I've created a new class.... I call it Round Trip .... from lightroom to photoshop and back again....

I'm going to share my I 'dance'.... with the two programs.... how I like to use them... in my as always easy to follow and creative way.

I don't often say... you have to have this...or you have to have that.... but sweet Photoshop friends.... You have to have Lightroom......  (okay, so that's a bit dramatic....but oh much to many possiblities)....

I will be offering an introductory.... beyond awesome.... Round 1 price..... so if you are ready to do the dance......... make the leap..... dive in..... this will be the time.

Lightroom 4 is available for a 30 day trial.... FREE from no big financial commitment is necessary up front.

I recommend a basic understanding of photoshop or Elements and layers.... for this class. If you are new to photoshop consider checking out my free Skinny-Mini eCourse. Registration is open HERE.

Registration for Round Trip.....will open next week. 

I'd love to have you join me! Bursting with anticipation....

Oh . . . I am so excited. I have been struggling with how to work with both PSE and Lightroom. They both have such wonderful qualities. I was hoping you would show us your new workflow. Can't wait to dance!

Woo hoo!!!!

Kim, you are promoting wild and unpredictable behavior in me! I just went and upgraded to CS6 AND bought Lightroom!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarb
Barb!! you will not regret cs6!!!!! it's beyond.... as are you!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKim Klassen
Hooray! I have LR3 and CS5 (thanks to my dear Kim) but must admit I have seriously slacked off on my organization and use of LR3. I have stuff on various cards not even downloaded, textures scattered all over my desktop (again ... after cleaning them up when you did the 'if not now than when' screen saver) plus things in instagram, Flickr, aaarghh! And I have perfect layers for Lightroom from OnOne, so technically shouldn't even need to round trip ... But I feel like I'm supposed to give a wave to PS since its there. I know you will clear my head on this Kim. Bravo for another timely class! Can we do type in LR?
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterColleen G
yes and no.... you can add type in lightroom..... but ps has way more flexibility....and extra fab features...

xo, Kim

I signed up for the Adobe Creative Cloud and I really need to get into Lightroom. I will be looking forward to details on the class!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLeAnne
is there some kind of hidden trick to getting ahold of your textures you send emails about? there is no longer a download link and you promise to send it later, but it never comes...
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterElaine-
hello elaine
i do send out the emails... as promised.....
perhaps your email provider is blocking the messages. or maybe sending them to spam. either can happen with list messages......and there is nothing I can do about it...once i hit the send....

you could try registering a different email...... once you do that and confirm your address you should receive a whole bunch of past ones...and the newest ones as they come!

Oh... I'm very curious about this Round Trip class. I too, fell in love with LR a while ago. I can`t live without it now. Can`t wait to hear more about the details of this class!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterYkha
Omg I feel the same way!! I am in love with Lightroom do much -funny bc I just wrote a postFor Friday on Lightroom and presets saying how I still love my photoshop too!! But Lightroom rocks!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSkye
Fantastic!!! My upgrade to LR just arrived 7 days ago, and I've been using it all week - love it, but have only used a few new sliders. Also, I have PSE10. Oh my - how fantastic to have you teaching us more cool things!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBeverly
okay... this is just what i need because i have both, but stumble between them. can't wait.
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercathy
I use LR3 and have no idea why I bought it - so this could be the answer to a big dilemma for me. Hope I can fund it. Can't wait to hear the details!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMarie Z. Johansen
Oh my another guilty pleasure . . .I can hardly wait! Does it work alright with CS4 Kim? I would love to purchase Light room but wonder . . . would I need to mortgage my first born? Is one version or edition better than another?

If your telling me I could possibly love Photoshop more with the addition of Light room, I simply MUST get it! Looking forward to the details!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBev
You never cease to amaze me Kim! Can't wait to see what this Round Trip will be like! I've used Lightroom for several years now but it just gets better and better!
August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCheryl M
I've also fallen in love with LR4. It's so, so fab. And did you see today that RadLab announced v1.3 so you can launch it directly from LR as an "edit in"? How completely fab is that? Surely you're completely in Heaven now!
August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatherine
OMG, Super True. I've been ... how'd you put it .. making the "Round Trip" since LR3 came out. I wouldn't do it any other way. The two go together just like "peas and carrots" =)
August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMaria
Kim, this sounds like a wonderful class...I'm very excited. I have LR3 and have been completely intimidated to learn. Thank you for offering this one!! :)
August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSherri B.
Oh oh so much excitement Kim yiu are a star I'm going to so enjoy this.......
August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterViv Halliwell
Ahem... any chance you could do the same for Aperture...? ;-)
August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRoie

I have Lightroom 3 but have been a little afraid to try it. Will it work for the class or would an upgrade to LR4 be better? Looking forward to the class.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJudy
Hooray! I can't wait. I just purchased LR4 and feel completely lost in it. I can't figure out how to organize my files, which I think is one of the big reasons why you use it, right? However, I do know how to do one thing, make collages, thanks to you! Question, I have RadLab (love...) for PSE, will I want it for LR too? xoxo
August 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristina
I'm in!!!!!! My credit card is revving up...and my LR upgrade to 4.1 came 2 weeks ago... BTW, thank you for using paypal! You so expand our worlds! Can it be a longer, slower paced series than BTS? Denise
August 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenise Powers Fabian
OMG! Someone finally is doing this. I have been begging everywhere for help in going back and forth between LR and PS.

Thank you so much, Kim.

August 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSandra
Can't wait :):):)
August 5, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermary Underwood
Perfect timing. I just purchased LR4 after seeing you work with in BTS and was wondering where I was going to turn to learn what to do with it. So I'm super excited to hear all about the class!
August 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDori
I am thinking about buying LR but a little more info would be welcome, so
August 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterYokomi
Not many people I would say this to....I trust your word on this and am ready to sign up, sight unseen. You've never steered me wrong...

Can't wait!
August 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCindy Swainson
can't wait Kim :) I was hoping that you will do something like this! I have Lightroom and use it and love it, but I know that with your guidance and clear fabulous instructions I'll learn so much more!!! Thank you :)
August 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAnia
Hi Kim. Is there any info on Round Trip available. When I looked under "take a class" for details, no info describing the class popped up. Thanks.
