I have been living in Japan for three years teaching English. I am originally from the U.S. and I'm planning to go back next spring. I'd like to settle in Florida. Since there wasn't much to do here I started playing around with my friends PhotoShop software. Now I'm hooked. I've studied PhotoShop for about a year and I'm planning to take the Adobe PhotoShop proficiency exam next month. I'm not a very good artist but I do have a good eye and I'm very creative. I'm trying to learn more about the art of Photography. I've studied a lot specifically about text and web graphics design. I do know HTML and have worked with Corel Xara and Illustrator. I'm just curious as to how PhotoShop is being used in industry and what job prospects would be open to someone like me. I have a Liberal Arts Degree in Music. Thanks for any suggestions.

Although I don't know exactly how you find these particular jobs (I'm sure you could find
some contacts/information on the Internet) there a few positions that are especially appropriate for someone who is proficient in Photoshop. Mainly I'm thinking of designing
book covers, cd covers, posters, etc. You could do all of those without necessarily having
to learn any other programs, especially if you are creative and have a good eye for images
that are aesthetically appealing. Good luck!

I have found that there are many job s out there that require the knowledge of Photoshop but they won't utilize all of your knowledge.  I have found out that most web page companies and publishing firms will use your expertise.  I have found many jobs with my knowledge of Photoshop.  It really all depends on what you want to do.

Thanks for the comment. Actually since I asked this question I've done lots of research and have been learning complimentary software as well such as Quark and html, web page design. I'm also interested in print media too.
