  • Re: Is it hard to get a job doing photo retouching

    If I were you I would try to find an internship with a retouching house or photographer, where ever you can find one, but that will give you valuable experience and work for your portfolio. One computer graphics course isn't going to...

    Expanding Client Base

    Hey hey, I'm starting to try and put some promo material together for mailers and leave behinds, I'm hoping to update my portfolio and possibly build a better website for it....or maybe at least have an index page that will link to what I've been doing which is having a lightroom gallery that's posted...

    Re: Now, just stop and think here.

    It's illegal to offer, and yeah, it's still illegal even if you agree. Do you think someone who is so desperate that they work for someone who will only pay them less than minimum wage should work for that amount just because they agreed to it? It's...

    Re: Now, just stop and think here.

    This photographer posts at least once if not more per month, the same exact ad, always unpaid. The most we can do is flag it as prohibited, because it is, it's an illegal internship and craigslist does not allow illegal internships to be advertised....

    Re: NYC Retouchers - Anybody work here?

    I've interviewed there before too (and also felt it was one of the weirdest interviews I've ever had, very awkward) and know two people that work/worked there. One of them was already hating it after a couple months. It's a factory, they are already...

    Re: Client issues with payment

    She seems willing to pay in parts. I need to ask for a payment schedule so she actually sends the payments. So we'll see. At this point, I mean yeah it's a lot of money for me, but not enough to go to court over.

    Does anyone have a resource...

    Re: Client issues with payment

    ugh, I just sent an email basically explaining that it's unacceptable for me to lower my rate to the same amount I could make at a retail job when I'm using expensive equipment, paying rent on my work space and utilities, using skills that took tens of thousands...

    Re: Client issues with payment

    Is there anywhere that has good examples of retouching contracts? I normally work with studios who just don't pull this kind of crap so I have no need for any kind of contracts or anything with them.

    I know taking her to court isn't worth...

    Re: Client issues with payment

    I have emails of the agreements and me telling her how much my rate will be hourly. I tried to keep her up to date with how long things took as much as possible, especially any time I knew she might be uneasy about the amount because I didn't want to keep...

    Client issues with payment

    So I have this one pain in the ass client, I was stupid in not invoicing them often enough so now they owe me over $700 and they're asking for a discount.....on a rate that is already extremely low and discounted because they say they didn't "budget" for how long it takes to retouch their...

    dealing with/dropping nightmare clients

    Hey, looking for some advice. I have a nightmare client...as you may have guessed from the title. She argues about rates, never gives a fair rate and so far has always contacted me about jobs when I'm super desperate for cash so although after the first time I worked for her I vowed to not do it again,...

    viewing guides in liquify tool?

    This has bugged me to no end, I need to see my guides while I'm in the liquify tool so that I can adjust things to match the guides, but there doesn't seem to be a way to turn them on. Does anyone know if it's possible or do you have any tricks for getting around it? I can't really paint a line on the...

  • Re: RetouchPRO LIVE on YouTube (beta)

    Oh, nevermind, I saw some of the previous posts. Youtube taking 50% or 48% of the fee is completely ridiculous. Considering that this would be geared most likely towards smaller businesses, like your own, how do they expect this to be a viable option...

  • Re: RetouchPRO LIVE on YouTube (beta)

    Why are they so expensive? I want to try them out, but $20 is a lot for a video I'm not even buying, and when you compare it to services like Lynda with unlimited access to videos on tons of topics for $25/month.
