I graduated with my AA in Ad Design in 92' and never took flash or web classes.
I am trying to steer the freelance work into Photoshop Retouching, & Photoshop only specialist areas.
I have thousands of photo retouches under my belt & I do a lot of Photoshop work & I love the program's abilities.
Anybody got any advice/experience marketing for a Photoshop focused business?
Thank You

My true suggestion is dont go out of business, just stay in business and start doing marketing for retoucher, meantime you can learn photoshop tricks for retouching and start doing on your own. God bless....

I'm sorry that you lost your job.I have been unemployed for 3 months now and unfortunately people take advantage of the situation of the now economy.the place I use to work,now the have a intern to "run" the business.
Every where they ask retoucher to be graphic-web-designer,developer,know interior design,architect etc oh yeah forgot and sales,what else,you know what's my point,with $ 8-10 hour.
Good luck to you and to everyone else.

Re: Just got laid off.

You could learn Flash (make some banner ads) in 2 months and also HTML using Dreamweaver. (Download their trial software).
Every business is expanding every aspect of their products into the web.
Learning DW, Flash would greatly increase your employability for the future.

Some computer magazine author said 15 years ago that every body that sits at a computer in any office should learn how to write HTML.
He was right.
It doesn't take very long to learn.
