    I'm kinda tired of chasing those money-making methods so I've decided to put all my effort to learning a skill.

    I'm thinking about Photoshop because I think it would be fun and I'm really interested to learn it.

    But it's still profitable in 2020?

    What do you think about how many months/years of learning it should take to make the first money from it?

    IMO, any skill can be profitable if you are persistent enough.

    It sure is worth , how much time it's going to take before you can monetize that skill depends on your approach .

    It definitely is. After some time, you even enjoy it.

    It can be used in many ways. Just graphic design, Branding, T-Shirt Designs and so much more.

    There are any methods/skills to start where is not to much competition? Because on every method/skill I'm planning to start learning, I hear always the same: "too much competition", "Too saturated".

    If this is what you really want to learn, don't care about the competition, care about being good enough and keep improving your skills :)

    Finding the right graphic designing job is hard. Don't fear of competition. Make yourself unique among all. Competition does not mean there is no money. It simply means too many people are there in this field skilled enough.

    Of course it's worth it. There will always be competition, but you'll also have a lot of opportunities as a graphic designer.

    It’s a useful and marketable skill to have at your disposal even if you don’t become a graphic designer

    Too much competition, requires some talent to be really good at it.

    Like most skills offered virtually, they only get profitable when you're in the top bracket. You'd make more money welding at your local shop.

    Any skill you are more than average can bring you ROI and brain food. You can do graphic design or look for rocks in the desert, it doesn`t matter. Forgive about this: "is saturated, you fight with 3rd world countries (assuming you are from tier 1)" etc. It's bullshit.

    Be different, master the skill and you will have success.

    I think you should learn video creation. Graphic designer is easy, and with software like canva, everyone can do it. Learn openshot, kdenlive, davinci resolve, premiere, after effect, etc. Good luck.

    Yes and no. It's up to you, actually.

    If you know where to sell later and will 100% have future customers, go for it.
