5 Ways You Can Make Money With Adobe Photoshop

Jul 18, 2008
While Adobe Photoshop is worth it, this popular program comes with quite a price! I've put together 5 ways that you can generate money through Photoshop or Photoshop Elements as a business venture, for extra spending money or even to repay yourself for the program.

1. Offer a Photo Restoration Service. I'm sure just about everyone has a photo or two that hasn't stood the test of time all that well, especially really old ones. Using the Healing Brush, Spot Healing Brush, and Patch tools, you can make old or damaged photos look like new again.

2. Become a Photograph Doctor. Whether it's "red eye", "pet eye", poor exposure, or "finger over the lens syndrome" Photoshop can transform a ruined image into a pristine one. You can also use Photoshop to make a colour photograph look like a black and white one, or colour tint a black and white one to make it colour. Not everyone is a good photographer, so you need never be short of "patients".

3) Design Greetings Cards - Designing greeting cards is a breeze with the photo enhancement and graphic design features in Photoshop. Enhance photos, combine photos with cut and paste for a fun and amusing card, transform photos into drawings or paintings for a masterpiece the choices never end. No matter the need from holidays to special events you can create the card for the occasion. Card blanks and envelopes are available from specialist suppliers.

4. Design T-shirts. Photoshop can make that idea for a great t-shirt a reality. You can purchase transfers from stationery shops or craft stores and plain cotton t-shirts can be found through low cost suppliers.

5. Web Design. This skill is more sought after than ever. All types of people and businesses seek this ability no matter the depth of the project. Some might need an entire web site designed, others simply site optimization, but Photoshop can have these demands met easily. Take commissions from a custom project or even create generic templates for others to purchase and download from your site to customize themselves.

You may need to consider the need for extra equipment such as a color printer, scanner and digital camera. This can be found inexpensively on eBay or other websites or on sale at local stores. Also include a DVD of royalty free images into your supplies, making sure to check the terms and conditions for their permission to use these images to create income.

The best advertisement comes from people. Ask friends and relatives, work associates and other connections if they or anyone they might know are in need of your services. Another option is to approach retailers with a portfolio of your work, and offer them commissions on any work they send your way.
