    So I got some money for Christmas and was looking at some bamboo tablets. I'm not experienced in Photoshop at all, however I do have the program. I was wondering if it would be beneficial for me to get the tablet or not? I like the feel of a utensil over a mouse and was wondering if it would help me out.

    Do you guys use one? And would it be a waste of money for me to get one?

    I would learn the ways of PhotoShop first and once you become more experienced with using the program, get the tablet.

    Although it's childish, you can do some pretty good graphics with tablets as seen on http://www.suta-raito.com

    I just got a bamboo pen tablet for christmas and i LOVE it! it's so much easier than a mouse, trust me. As for starting with photoshop, it depends on what you use it for, do you just want it for drawing? for editing photos?
