    Unhappy Is is worth it?

    I have wanted a Wacom tablet for years now, and now that I have photoshop permanently on my computer, I am wondering if a Wacom tablet would be worth the money. They're expensive and all, but if it's worth the money I wouldn't mind dropping a few hundred dollars on one.
    Can anyone help me?

    Um..Yes. With the stipulation that you actually want to digitally paint.

    Yes, but just remember that it won't magically make you any better at painting. Not saying that's what you were thinking, but I know of plenty of people who thought it would, only to be disappointed.

    Get one now! seriously no one uses a mouse to do this stuff. We all have tablets or something similar,something that allows pressure sensitivity.

    Ya I know, I do want to be a better digital artist, and that's why I would totally drop some money on one. Thanks for the advise! I might try and see if someone I know has one and maybe they'll let me test it out.

    Oh yes! I totally do. I have been trying to be better but I don't have an external mouse for my laptop. The mouse is on my laptop so it's really hard to get the results I want.

    You don't necessarily need a Wacom per say to work well digitally, but it is generally a trusted brand. So yes, if you have the bucks to spare, go for it.

    Advantage of getting a Wacom, as opposed to some shoddy brand, is that it'll probably hold up better. I've had my old graphire for upwards of 5 years now and it's still holding strong.

    See that's what I want. That is why I decided on a Wacom tablet. I mean I haven't heard anything about any other type of tablet that's anywhere near as good as a Wacom. That is super encouraging about you having it 5 years!!!!

    It's one thing to do that kind of stuff when you have no money and can't afford a tablet, but why be stubborn when there's no need? I mean, can't you just do a picture with a mouse just for the lulz and the ability to say "look I can do it with a mouse!" and then use a tablet? It's pretty clear that it's faster and easier for most people.
