Today’s Texture Tuesday’s quest is to use at least one of Kim Klassen’s textures on any photo…. free and easy!
It should have been free and easy for me, but I just upgraded from PSE 9 to PSE 11, and had 5 days of issues following the installation. I can now edit photos and move back and forth between the Organizer and the Editor, which is a big step from where we started on Friday! But importing a texture still causes the program to crash. We’ve been in the forums, asking questions, doing live chats with PhotoShop advisors, watching videos; and on the phone with our son, a photographer who uses PhotoShop, Lightroom and other programs, who’s been helping us brainstorm too.
I’m thrilled I made it through the process WITH the texture on this photo!
I’m hoping I can remember how I did it! I certainly cannot use “Place” under File any longer to place a texture.
That causes an instantaneous crash!
I love to purchase fresh flowers in the winter…and photograph them. It makes me happy to have them in the house, and
it reminds me that spring will come again~ someday!

Thanks for stopping by!
Today we are using a photo that POPS with color, and adding at least one of Kim Klassen’s textures.
I love Dahlias, and especially this particular one. I photographed this charming posy in the gardens of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
I used Kim’s Havana texture at a 37% opacity. I also used a paint brush to add some contrast around the edges of the image and on a few light colored petals.
