wasn't sure where to post this and I'm new to this community. I'm only starting out in concept art and need some advice. I own photoshop cs 5 student edition, and that obviously has restrictions with getting work ect. but upon looking around for a drawing tablet i came across the bamboo tablet that for an extra $40 comes with photoshop elements. being a student without qualifying for a student allowance from the government $40 is a lot of money haha.
what I'm trying to ask here is will photoshop elements suffice for concept art or does it lac necessary tools that the cs editions hold.
Photoshop elements is kind of shitty. Can do the same thing with Gimp basically.
so its not worth getting basically?
Not really. Elements is more meant for photo editing for home photos and that sort of thing.

I use Photoshop Elements 10.
It's nothing at all like GIMP, (Gimp sucks actually lol It always lags on me :U )
Photoshop elements is like a small version of Photoshop, it works for the same things but it doesn't have all the features, for example, it doesn't come with HSV color picker (or at least I havent found it yet) and of course you can't import your 3d models and paint them like you can do on CS5
I think what you should do is some research, read up on the features it brings etc, and see if it's what you're looking for.
40$ for a tablet and photoshop elements seems like a really good deal to me!
