    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.

          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?

                      Maybe Pros Should answer so newbies can get an idea of what to expect,itdoesn't cost them anything but a minute of time.
                      And as far as repetitive posting!!! I am an amateur compared to some people on here
                      The IDEA! Behind the Question is to help out people who just MIGHT NOT be as in the Know as othe people,WHO might be thinking of taking this as a career path BUT not Sure
                      SO PASSING ON INFORMATION "WHICH COSTS YOU NOTHING" I think should be a pleasure.SO Newbies or less experienced have some idea what there getting into BEFORE they start Buying all sorts of BOOKS and DVD's

                      After all isn't that what this sight is about

                        Re: Work

                        Questions? Staements? whatever As far as finding my posts there hundreds on here pretty much the same (or More) asking or stating this problem
                        Exactly why I stated this(I Personally think a SMALL percentage actually do )
                        Does it mean I am Right "NO"
                        I am not BAiTING ANYONE Simply asking and either its true that there is a small percentage of people or they just don't want to answer
                        Everyday on this SIGHT people ask these Questions "Maybe not word for word but pretty much the same idea" are they also "Baiting" people

                        FINALLY; Cat and mouse game?? the question at the top of this thread seems pretty straight forward to me

                          Why do you keep asking the same question over and over again, year after year? what answer are you looking for, that you have not received yet?

                              Reps that lack a category for retouchers
                              by Solstice
                              I've noticed that reps don't represent retouchers. I should clarify, I have seen one that does, out of so many that don't include a category for retouchers. Why is that?

                              The categories I've seen are as follows:

                              photographers
                              set designers
                              stylists
                              makeup...

                              Hi everybody... I've been looking for work, and I tried using Monster and Career Builder... when you type in the word retoucher, you get nothing... Which leads me to believe that nowadays they are calling retouchers something else which I'm not aware of...

                              Retouchers specialized in hotels/interior?
                              by abdul10000
                              Are there any retouchers specialized in hotels/interior out there? By that I mean retouchers who can take raw pictures and turn them into final pictures up to international standards. It seems I am never able to find people specialized, just many retouchers with few interior samples in their portfolio....
