Everyone has heard of Photoshop. You may have even dabbled with it yourself to make your digital images crisper. Heck, in the midst of making all those memes and airbrushing your hair you could be considered an expert by now.
What if I told you that you could use that program to not only make things pretty but make money too?
Got your attention? I thought that would do it.
Here we talk about how to make the most of Photoshop online and start doing more than simple photo editing.
How to Use Photoshop Online to Make Money
Create a Digital Product
In case you’ve been living under a rock for awhile I’ll let you in on a little secret, you can now buy ANYTHING online.
From skipping stones to private jets, the world is your online shopping oyster.
You can use Photoshop to get your little piece of this pie. You can even make money while you sleep.
With photography and web elements (logos, backgrounds, themes, etc.) taking two of the top five most profitable digital products, it’s easy to see that mastering Photoshop could lend major bucks to your bottom line.
There’s also a huge demand for printables like gift labels, art to hang in your home, or handmade unique cards.
Become a Freelance Photo Editor
By using all the venues for freelance work online these days it’s easy to market yourself as a Photoshop pro and get work editing pictures.
Offer competitive pricing and do quality work and you’ll have business rolling in.
Become a Designer
Every business needs marketing materials.
Hone your craft to start designing amazing posters, banners, and flyers.
Once a business sees your work and they love it they’ll hire you for future marketing projects too.
Word of mouth quickly spreads and suddenly you’re a master Photoshop designer with a stacked bank account to boot.
Take Control of Digital Downloads
You can design tons of creative works through Photoshop.
Design custom stationery for weddings and special occasions. Design t-shirt silk screen images.
The best part? These can all be digital downloads too. You design it once, put it up, and then anyone can buy it, over and over, anytime they want.
That’s the key to financial freedom.
Color Separation Expert
What do those get rich books always say? Find your niche.
Do you want something specific that has little competition but high demand? Master color separation for printing.
This may sound boring. But when a business is going to a conference and realize they have to print a ton of marketing materials they will need someone like you.
A color separator makes an image ready for print by separating the four printing colors: cyan, yellow, magenta, and black.
Taking this extra step makes sure your prints come out with amazing depth and precision.
While most print shops can also do this, most businesses already have photo-quality printers. It makes more sense to hire a freelancer online who can work on the raw images and send them back when they’re finished.
This is truly a niche that can be financially rewarding.
So, as you can see, with a little creativity and a lot of Photoshop know-how you can start making money with Photoshop online.
