    depend on your creativity. And do you have joy when designing stuff for others. otherwise it will feel stale, and that will make your brain feel frozen.

    Every method and skill set is saturated. We are 7,8 billion people on this planet god dammit. Do you want something unsaturated? Look for it yourself, nobody's gonna spoon feed you. Would you share your method to anybody else? No, you don't want it saturated.

    Why the fuck when it comes to Photoshop everybody instantly says "Graphic Design is saturated"? Photoshop isn't only about graphic design, and mostly about retouching. For graphic design go learn Illustrator.

    I've been working in Photoshop for 7 years now, 1 year freelancing. It is extremely hard since the market is flooded with people from 3rd world countries that are extremely bad at this but extremely cheap. Learn it, make a portfolio, spam the shit out of potential clients with it.

    It depends on what you personally like. If you like graphic design, go with it.
    If its all about money for you, go with something, which can bring you a high income. For example SEO or App developing.

    Of course it is profitable. You need to find high paying clients though.
