don't know. I bet I'm far less artistic than you at drawing and I can't get the hang of it! :D


Sounds like a challenge to me! :lol:

So.....In conclusion.... Would one contemplate spendind $125 or so and getting a generic to see if it fits or use the trackball one would have in the closet...or the mouse...(mine is more like a rat... jumps when it not convenient.)
Thinking about asking the wife for something for Christmas since she has already put in her list for nice ear rings...

Heh! I don't think anyone can give you a "final answer"! If you spend a lot of time in Photoshop using the graphical tool for selecting and brushing and such then a tablet could really pay off. If it's just occasional stuff, well, maybe not -- these things take practice to learn.

The Wacom Bamboo tablets are supposed to be pretty good and don't cost very much.

I see they have a new Bamboo Fun model that is a little larger and includes multi-touch (like you would be using an I-Phone). They're about $170 on Amazon. That would probably be what I would get if I didn't already have an Intuos3.

They also have the smaller Bamboo tablets that cost about half what the Fun model does.
