Find someone that is going to college. All major university's sell software for cheep as a student discount. If the university does not do it, all you need is proof of student and you can order strait from adobe by going HERE. Or if not in US click your country under education HERE. You can buy PS CS4 extended for $200 (costs $1,000 normaly) or Lr for $100 (normaly $300).

I bought Xp for $15 and office for $25... big savings for being a student... and most students don’t even know that this is offered to them.

Re: Self-taught Retoucher Going Pro

Thank you for the suggestion. I do know someone currently in college and I know they will help me with this. I would much rather pay $200 instead of $1,000. I am not made of money, as I am sure no one else is either.

Re: Self-taught Retoucher Going Pro

Hiya people, im new to these parts so first off i'd like to say hello. Hello

I am also a self taught and also planning to get out in to the market and hopefully land a job but, maily freelance. I am also a self taught video editer with some good skills i must say. Would it be harder for me to get a job in this retouching graphic design with having no qualifications or do agencys go off your work?

Thanks

Hi Benny,

What do you mean with "first break" and "it's your ball to carry"? Cannot get the meaning of the first quoting and the metaphor of the second one.

First Break = someone gives you a chance
your ball to carry = now its up to you. "you" do good or "you" screw it up.
