    You say "Photoshop," then you say "design work." Which do you mean? Photoshop
    is not a design tool; you don't do fliers and brochures in Photoshop.

    If you do all your design and layout in Photoshop, best not to charge more than
    $5-7 an hour. On the other hand, if you're a graphic arts professional and you
    do image editing in Photoshop, layout in a page layout program such as
    QuarkXPress or Illustrator, and vector work such as logo design in Illustrator,
    you can expect to be compensated rather better.

    The first place i suggest you look is the Graphic Arts Guild's "Handbook of
    Pricing and Ethical Guidelines." You can order it online at

    It will answer these questions, and more.
