I am a male of our species. I'm not sure what relevance that has to PS.

Could the moderator move this thread above the line or to an appropreate forum so that the business/pleasure of retouching could in some manor be the subject again?

Why am I here, because I'm interested in Photoshop retouch, not which gender the other people are. What ever you/we are is just fine.

This was Vikki's original post that started this thread ...

Just curious about the ratio of men to women who are active in the restoration business
The 'active in the restoration business' is the connection ...

I have noticed a difference between the genders (not just the obvious ... and find this thread fun, interesting and relevent. This kind of comraderie and good will is what helps to keep this site so special.

(previously voted, still male)

Not sure why it is (perhaps there are not more men here...just that men are more willing to answer an online poll! ) would be interesting to know how men and women differ in the manner they approach a restoration or retouching job.

one day this week the today show opined that women are more technophobic than men; if true, it could be related to why more men here. actually, restoration seems to me a more natural fit for a woman.

186 male - 109 female! wow! on some boards i've seen the ratios of the style 85%-15%... great to see such a strong presence of sweet part of human race here (sorry if it's sexistic or something )

oh, btw, i think i'm male...

Red face poll..

Guess I'll use my first post here to add another female to the mix. I'm not 'in the business', but rather just beginning to get serious about a hobby.

Another female vote for the poll.
I have been in the business just a short while but am enjoying upskilling and the positive feed back I get from customers.
I have just started my own business, from previously working digitally in a lab based more around traditional photo processing where I started in the industry.
Another computor driven chick

Yet another female to add to the poll. We must be able to level this up somehow!!!

I would be interested to know, though, how many males vs females are just in it for fun, and how many males vs females do it fulltime. I get the impression that maybe more men do it for fun, while the females are busy doing the housework! Maybe I'm wrong! (Ok, maybe a little controversial???)

It is interesting to find out though, because apart from anything else, what different workflows are used - do more women multitask than men? Is it quicker to do a few things at a time, or do each one properly in turn?

Ok, so I guess this isn't techinically restoration and retouching, but we can still all learn from it. All extra bits of information are worth having!
