Photoshop Scams and How to Avoid Them: A blog about how you can avoid getting scammed when looking for a photoshopping service.
We’ve all seen the ads… “I will photoshop anything for $5!” or “Photoshop your image for only $30 per hour!” We want to believe that there are people out there willing to do great work for very low prices, but unfortunately in this case it just isn’t true.
Those who offer these services are not very skilled at Photoshop. They don’t care about customer satisfaction and they aren’t concerned with their reputation as an artist, because they know they won’t be working with you again. This is why it’s important to research any potential artist before hiring them. There are a few things you should look for when choosing a designer.
They should have an extensive portfolio of original, high quality work. Do not be fooled by those who claim their work is private or confidential; if they cannot show you, then do not hire them. Look at their past clients’ reviews; what did others say about the quality of their work? If there is no feedback, then walk away.
You should always communicate directly with the artist before hiring them. There are so many websites that allow you
As you have probably noticed, the number of photoshop services available on the internet is overwhelming. This is because photoshopping has become quite popular and there are many people who want to earn money by offering their photoshop skills to others. There are both good and bad photoshoppers out there, but unfortunately it can be hard to tell them apart. Many scammers try to make a quick buck by selling a poor quality service or just faking it entirely, and some of them have gotten pretty good at it. Therefore, it is important that you know how to avoid getting scammed when looking for a photoshopping service.
I have made this blog in order to give you an idea of what these scammers look like so that you can avoid them when looking for your own photographer. I will be discussing the various types of scams and how they work so that you will be able to spot them easily, as well as giving you some tips on how to protect yourself from them.
The most common type of scammer is the “get rich quick” kind that promises you thousands of dollars for a few hours work per day. They will usually try to get your contact information or credit card information by using fake online forms and websites with false promises such as “You
In this post I’m going to talk about scams and how to avoid them. I will also be talking about the different ways you can get scammed by a photoshopper, whether you are looking for one yourself or have just been approached by someone offering their services.
I have been a member of many communities in the past, but these days I only frequent a few. One of the main reasons why I do not visit many is because of their rules. A lot of communities ban people from posting in the “work wanted” section if they are not staff or an affiliate, and in some cases they will even ban people from posting any type of advertisement at all.
The first thing you should do before approaching someone who offers photoshopping services is make sure that they are not a scammer. The easiest way to do this is by asking them for proof. If they cannot provide proof that they have done work for others, then there is a good chance that they are lying and you should avoid dealing with them.
You need to be able to verify their identity before you can trust them with your money and/or personal information. If they do not have any previous clients, then they likely don’t exist!
It’s a very sad fact that there are many scammers out there preying on people, scamming them of their money and taking advantage of the fact that they may not know any better. Most scammers are not very intelligent and so, if you know what to look for, it is easy to avoid them.
The first thing to point out is that only a very small minority of people offering photoshopping services are in fact scammers. There are many legitimate services available, some utilize a small number of skilled individuals and others have hundreds of staff members all over the world.
Some things to look out for when trying to find a legitimate service:
1 – Don’t go with extremely low prices. You get what you pay for and top quality photoshopping does not come cheap. If someone is offering you extremely low prices then it is likely that they are being dishonest in some way. A person will not spend hours working on your images unless they are getting paid more than minimum wage for the effort required.
2 – High volume services will be cheaper than small businesses with just one or two employees because they can afford to give you a discount if they have a large amount of work coming in every week from many customers. The larger the company the cheaper their
There are many websites out there that will tell you they want to be your exclusive photoshop expert, but how do you know who to choose?
A lot of people will claim to be the best and charge an arm and a leg for their services, but if you do your research, you’ll find that they’re likely frauds.
Here are some ways to tell if someone is a Photoshop fraud or not:
1) Their website has no contact information. This is the
There are plenty of people out there trying to make a quick buck off of your photoshop needs. Google “photoshop” and you will find an overwhelming number of websites offering a wide variety of services. Some people on these websites are legitimate, but many are not. They may be inexperienced, have no portfolio or examples of previous work, or simply just looking to rip you off.
So what can you do to avoid getting ripped off? Here is a list of tips that can help you find someone who will deliver a quality product for your money.
