Beyond Beyond- Day 18 Mixed Bag

Kim presented a mixed bag of Lightroom and Photoshop tips, as well as some iPhoneography tricks.

Here is my grandmother’s sewing basket (decluttered!) and with some of her mother’s buttons in the foreground- and her darning egg.  I desaturated the image and then added the kk_desert texture, which did a great job of masking the scratches on my old dining room table by adding new ones from the texture.


I don’t usually do much with my iPhone photos.  I use the camera when I don’t have my regular camera, and I do edit them in Snapseed and PicTapGo- but then they tend to stay on my phone or go straight to Facebook.  I decided that I would use an iPhone image for this blog post, so took a shot of flowers by my doctor’s office.  I loved the tip Kim gave us about adding a black and white filter in PicTapGo and then fading the adjustment to just slightly desaturate the image.  However,  I went with a punchier edit, because it was the bright colors that attracted me to the flowers in the first place.  I cropped in Snapseed and played with the Bright adjustment in the Drama filter- but ended up just leaving that alone.  In PicTapGo, I warmed up the image a bit, added some “crispity-ness”, and then went full strength with color burn. And here we are!

  1. I must get back to Kim’s class. I have so much catching up to do. I love the sewing basket and button shot. Lovely and the scratches just add to the feel, both the real scratches and the KK ones. Nice job.

  2. Love the garden of sunshine and bright colors! The sewing basket is soooo special – and such a magnificent layout and tones! Beautifully done! Seen in 2B
