Both quotes hit a nerve.
Replace Soviet Union with China in first quote to be more accurate for the pain it has caused working people.

Re: Outsourcing Retouching Services To India?

I'll add that as a photographer I tried outsourcing and the work was so bad and 'overdone' I simply couldn't use it. With what I do I need it to look like it was never retouched at all. The images they sent back as tests of mine (despite all of the direction I could muster) had plastic/porcelain looking skin, glow in the dark eyes and every single freckle removed on those with freckles (people must not have freckles over there)

So, what was plan B, now that you found out that third world retouching is junk?

I went back to doing it myself.

I also posted on the classifieds board after finding this site.
