How to Request Recommendations
“Anyone have a recommendation for ___?” is a good way to start. 😊
To get the most relevant recommendations possible, I’d recommend that you be as specific as you can.

Helpful: “Can anyone recommend a designer who excels at removing backgrounds from photos, using Adobe Photoshop?”
