I am Really Curious HOW many People actually MAKE a FULLTIME living from
RETOUCHING or RESTORATION work

I Personally think a SMALL percentage actually do

Re: Work

You got a "poll" feature when you post a new thread. You want to test that and see how it goes.
I think many of the people here are not just retouchers (but I may be wrong)

Retouchers/photographers
retouchers/digital artists
retouchers/restorers
retouchers/webdesigners...
etc...

Retoucher/Photo-illustrator (or whatever you want to call it) is my sole source of income.

Re: Work

I've been working solely as a retoucher for 18 years so we are out there!
Even the easy jobs used to pay well; now it's just hard jobs come my way!

This is like the 8th thread you've made on this topic - what's the point?

No one said there are more pros than amateurs on this site. At the same time most pros never respond to such threads because taking attendance doesn't excite them. If you know where to find a greater amount or higher proportion of pros that's great - where is it?

I recalled too that the OP asked this over and over, I thought I would respond this time and see 'whats the point?'

So Zganie, what are you trying to get at? That most people on this forum are amateurs?
