Make Money with Photoshop

Are you one of those those who loves to change photo's backgrounds? Making fun of your friends photos by making them look uglier? Or are you one of those who are really artistic in making a simple photo into a very good art using photoshop?

I have a good news for you my friend - You can make money with photoshop!

When it was my first time to learn Adobe Photoshop, I immediately loved its features. It's not just because it is required in the school or so but I personally love photo editing and the like. That passion led me to learn more this software. And not just the software but the fun of photo editing itself. So I kept on editing my friend's photos by making them more artistic (and sometimes funny).

At first it was just a hobby but I wanted to make money with photoshop so I looked for ways in doing so. I then started to work as an Office Staff in a school and its there that I first had some income applying my skills in photoshop. I was still a college student then when I helped in cleaning the school's elementary students' photo backgrounds in their yearbook. It was a fulfilling work and it was my first time to make money with photoshop.

There was also a time when an owner of a Photography studio asked me to teach him how to use photoshop. I needed money so of course I accepted the offer. I'm happy that through my tutorial, they are now making a good business incorporating photo editing in their photo shooting works (And whenever I go there for a rush ID or any photo printing servies, I always have discounts).

I then became a video editor and my knowledge in photoshop is also a great help. I was able to make money with photoshop by applying it still in my video editing works. Sometimes I also accept photo editing and lay outing works. I also continued to do some tutorials by teaching photoshop at home to some students.

I wanted to maximize my knowledge in photoshop in gaining more money so I also created a product to be sold. I took photos of natures and interesting subjects and cleaned their backgrounds. Those photos can then be added as additional elements in photo editing and lay outing and also in motion graphics or any design for that matter.

As you can see, in my own simple ways, I was able to make money with photoshop. I don't even have my own computer when I was still starting out. The good thing today is that we can also outsource our work online. Unlike when I was beginning that I only started to make money with photoshop in our place and by working in companies, internet opened more ways for us to let our skill in photoshop gain money.

You can make money with photoshop in many different ways:

1. Do a freelance job in graphic designing and photo editing through the web If graphic designing is already your day job then that's fine. Aside from working for your boss and making him rich however, you can also do freelance works. In this way you can offer lower rates (but quality works) to your clients. In doing so, it is good to make an online portfolio for you to show your samples. If you have a website, that's cool. But don't worry if you don't have one. You can always create a free blog from google's blogger. Make use also of the power of social sites such as Facebook and Twitter. How about make a fan page in Facebook and upload your works. Some of your friends might be interested and ask you to do some job.

2. Do tutorials You can do what I did by teaching photoshop and get paid by some people you know who needs your help. But there are also other opportunities that you can do online. You can write tutorials and sell them to article directories like eHow. Just try your best to make a step by step processes. To make your tutorial more engaging, you can capture screenshots and incorporate them. You can also make video tutorials and post them in youtube. You can make money with photoshop through this by joining Youtube Partner Program. Other sites that you can also submit those video tutorials to make money are Rewer, BrightCove, Vuze, BlipTV, Metacafe Producer Rewards, Atom, Apple's itunes music store, Behemoth, Streamyo, and Lulu. Just try to search for those websites and learn their programs. But before that, you must first record your video tutorial. You can use camtasia pro to do so.

3. Do stock photography Another way to make money with photoshop is by creating stock photos. If you are also good in photography, you can combine that with your photoshop skills and sell those photos to stock photography sites such as iStockphotos, Shutterpoint, etc.

There are more other ways on how to make money with photoshop. Web designing has also its own. The basic idea is that you make money with photoshop by photo editing, lay outing, graphic designing, and teaching. Just sell either your services or your product in your area and online.

It's really good to make your passion your profession. By this your work will be turned into play. Just continue to make money in photography.
