Does your work involve delivering talks— but does PowerPoint not seem to like you very much? Do you have a picture that you want to blow-up— but there's a pimple getting in the way? Are you required to make a science poster about the research you've just done— but feel that making layouts isn't one of your fine talents?
Don't worry about it: these things don't cost a fortune. My standard rate for doing graphics work is five-hundred Pesos * per hour, and simple clean-up and layout jobs don't take long. Enlarging images and removing blemishes takes only minutes, while making posters or slide shows requires a only a couple of hours— four at most.

* Pesos, you say? Philippine Pesos, at the time of this writing, has a US Dollar exchange value of 45:1. This means that P15,000.00 is around US$330.00, and P500.00 is around US$11.00.
