Photo Editing Study Group

The Photo Editing Study Group with Crystal Livesay is a 16-week experience to develop and refine your photo editing skills.

Your Guide

Crystal Livesay is a talented photographer, graphic designer, scrapbooker, and former creative team member at Simple Scrapper.

Crystal taught our first round of the Photo Editing Study Group at the beginning of 2020 and I asked her to join us in the membership again in 2021 for this creative opportunity.

The Study Group is for memory keepers who…

Are disappointed with how printed photos turn out. From too dark to too yellow, you are tired of your supplies overshadowing your pictures.
Consistently feel frustrated when editing photos. You know the basics, but editing is a headache and you can’t seem to find a consistent style.

Are eager to edit more photos, for framing, scrapbook pages, or photo book projects. Even if you don’t plan to edit every photo, you’d love to edit with ease for photo gifts and home displays.

The Experience

Every other week for 16 weeks, Crystal will share video instruction with an assignment. You will be encouraged to take small steps and share the result. Demonstrations will use Lightroom, but most skills can be adapted to other software. Crystal will offer assignment feedback, but we will also emphasize students actively sharing.


Study Group topics include:

Using presets
Keeping edits consistent
Fixing overexposed photos
Fixing underexposed photos
Fixing color casts
Export settings
Creative editing: black & white
Creative editing: moods

What do you get with a My Simple Scrapper membership?

My Simple Scrapper is a diverse, welcoming community of paper and digital scrapbookers who create layouts, pocket pages, mini albums, and more. We encourage members to cultivate their own unique path in memory keeping.

A membership offers 24-7 access to our warm and supportive online community that features ongoing gentle accountability, regular online crops, and new creative resources every month. It’s your online home.

We use an ad-free, third party community platform designed for nurturing online relationships in private spaces. You will be able to access the community from a web browser on your computer or a mobile app on your tablet or phone.

Does my membership automatically renew?

No, this is a one-time payment. At the end of your six months, you will be invited to create an annual subscription at the rate of $149/year.

If you’re already ready for that commitment, you can get a year of membership AND the Photo Editing Study Group for $238. This option does renew.

When does the Photo Editing Study Group begin?

The experience begins on Wednesday, January 13.

Will the Photo Editing Study Group be offered again?

We’re honestly not sure yet, but this is likely the best price you will ever see.
