That's mighty good work you did. It should be published.

That is very difficult to say. There is at least one photo retouching business in India that is advertised in a number of places here in the U.S. I worked through one camera store doing retouching. It brought in some money but not enough to entice to me quit my real job. Perhaps if I worked for a number of stores that might have done better. One of the restorations I did was published in a book on photo restoration. At the start, the folks at the photo store didn't think much could be done to salvage the photo the customer had wanted to be restored.

By the way, this is the first restoration I'd ever attempted.

I think you're right. I should have majored in marketing instead of art.

Fiverr has 22,627 listings for "photo editing and retouching"... so, I'd say it's a 'yes'

Like most photography businesses, many try and a small percentage make money at it. A LOT of competition. I wouldn't quit your day job until the other proves to be profitable.

Does photo editing business worth?


I have been paid many times for doing photo editing for my customers who buy my artwork and photos, but it doesn't happen often enough to make a living at it...maybe with someone, somewhere, but not with me. I think the reason it doesn't happen often enough is that you can see in your mind what you can make of a picture and a lot of people can't. They might order it done if you offer a portfolio showing what you can do with pictures, otherwise they just can't imagine how it could possibly turn out. Best wishes.

Going to guess and say your best chances for success starting out lie with realtors and wedding photographers.

A lot of replies over 24 hours to a nearly meaningless question, all making assumptions as to what the OP actually meant, a lot of time and effort spent by Hoggs on what is at best a guess at what the OP intended, and in that 24 hours the OP has not responded or clarified the original posting.

Yep. Just need to understand marketing, and if you don't, hire someone who does.
