    I am not really one to beg, but sorta am in a situation at the moment that is kinda forcing me to put my pride aside and ask for help here.

    For health reasons I am unable to keep working at my job - so I have zero revenue at the moment and have been for a little while and the situation is spiraling out of control.

    So enough with the sob story, I am writing to see if there is anyone here that might have work for me. I am looking for someone to help me out getting back on my feet and I sure as hell am ready to work hard!

    I am a freelance video editor (don't have enough gigs at the moment to pay off what I owe...). So I can definitely do all types of video work.
    I also have experience in Photoshop.
    I also consider myself to have decent grammar and writing skills.
    I dabble a lot with Youtube (however not really making any income that is worth mentioning at the moment).

    I have until July 1st to get my things back on track so if you can help, hit me up! All I have is time for work!

    Again, I apologize for the begging...

    Seeing my username in your sig is flattering. So thanks for that. How much do you need to be "back on track".

    Photoshop is a Fiver gig. I just spent 30 minutes having a pro teach me how to crop a head-shot from a larger-scale photo, and size it to another.
    In retrospect, I should have just had the damn thing done on Fiver. If I had known what I was doing, I would have been done in less than 5 minutes, so if you were to sell that service, you could make $5.00/crop X 20 in an hour = $100.00 an hour.

    I got the cracked CS5 in less than an hour. You don't need anything else. In fact, I'm thinking about doing it myself, lol...

    Sent you a PM as for the quote. It was from that Sausage thread, I don't know if you remembered that? I thought that was right funny that you posted that, because I often feel that way when I see certain posts on here...!

    This is a good idea, I will definitely add that to my list of gigs, as in reality it is probably longer to type in the name of the file and selecting the place to save, than to do do the actual cropping. (M.>Select with mouse>CTRL+C>CTRL+N>CTRL+V>CTRL+SHIFT+S and we are done)

    However that would be 80$ and not 100 as fiverr keeps 1$ off every sale. Yet it is not stable income, it does not mean you will get people purchasing your gig every hour.
