So I guess as far as Indians go... Red Dot as opposed to Native... would not be politically correct?

"Can't we all just get along?"
Look- the customers that are interested in paying $3 an image probably could not tell the difference, nor care about the difference, between good or bad retouching. And if you're competing in that market segment, then maybe you should take a long hard look at the quality of your own work. Step it up, set yourself apart, and don't look back.
You can take advantage of the overseas "problem". Find a good supplier, and send him your jobs to cut masks and make paths instead of wasting your own time, then do the skill work yourself. Most of these companies operate in a time zone that's convenient for this. Either pass the savings on to your client, or take yourself out for a nice dinner.

Re: Indian Works, Prices and US Companies...

"But I cannot find good clients, even if my quality is really high." - thing you have to understand is, EVERYONE thinks that when they begin. Probably more than half the people who start using the software, think within the first 6 months that they are at a professional standard when really they are far from it. The industry has a unique problem, in that the tool ie. Photoshop can be really freely accessed, and learned superficially so easily. The tool itself has been designed in such a way to make it possible for ANYONE to learn easily. But its a mistake to let that deceive you into forgetting that its just as easy for everyone else to learn.

While I appreciate that you don't want to hear this, its extremely easy to learn to do this at your level. With all honesty, you can take a person with no retouching experience and train them in about 6 months to do that. But there are no shortcuts to achieving any standard, that all comes down to visual experience. The further down the track you get, the more you understand that its your ability to show some kind of taste, and be able to visualise in some way, thats important. These are the only things that can separate you from the thousands of others out there who all think their 6 months using photoshop qualifies them to earn a good living. First thing you need to do is recognise your current true level, and wait for your lucky break. More likely to come if you show some kind of modesty. We were all there at one point

In Argentina, most people comes from Italy and Spain, then polish, germans, jews, ukrainians, turkish, syrians, arabs, lebaneses and lately, british, scotish, americans, frenchs, croatian and irish as well. The first group of people becuase the world war, and the second group of people, becuase the cheaper life cost you have here. Taxes are much lower than in the US or Europe, renting a home here is quite cheap compared with US and Europe but lately, food is much expensive than in London. The last group of people work as Freelancers, doing copywriting, translations and teaching for their respectives countries while the first group used to work as farmers and commerce: italians and spanish went more into the farm while middle east people more into commerce.
There are more jews here than germans, in fact, there is a big amount of them here, not so much as italians, middle east and spanish, but jews are in the third place while germans are the same than ukranians and polish, and the rest are in the last place.

You should read a bit more before writing, or your comment could be taken as a provocation, so please, relax yourself before start writing.

Have a nice day

Mart

Well, I don't know from where do you get that info, but it's completely wrong. Just see this link: http://images.google.com/images?um=1...=&q=argentinos They doesn't look like germans, nor nazis...
