Any worth to be Adobe Certified Expert (ACE)

Hi,

After spending 10 yrs. with photoshop and completing thousand of retouching and restroation projects Now my mind turned to be Adobe Certified Expert (ACE).

Why ? bcoz someone pointed me to do it. I asked him for benefits and he was unable to tell something very-very good.

So, I thought that this is a very good place to discuss about the important benefits of this exam. Is there any worth if we give ACE exam ? Is there any preference to ACE in our commercial and freelance society ?

This discussion will helpful to all of the other retouchers too.


So, I'm waiting for your valuable inputs.

Thanks.

Ash

Being ACE certified is good if your going to teach or give workshops,but for retouching not really.
Also remember that being ace certified only certifies you for the version you took the exam for

I'm not going for teaching / workshops. I thought it would helpful for freelance retouching.

probably not if you're going for a retouching job or a production artist position - where portfolio is optimal. But studying for the ACE test lets you delve into every aspect of photoshop and gives you a very in-depth knowledge and all-in-all it can't hurt a resume. I was PS 6 ACE certified and PS CS1 ACE certified. I won't do it anymore because Photoshop has gotten huge with features and would take forever to study for and also I am in a position where I now have a portfolio
