I've also been looking at the Bamboo tablets , you can get one for £50/60 ,
but are these small ones (6x4?) a waste of time? or is there better
value-for-money out there.
Probably only use it in PS etc.

Tablet is lot more then selection and cutout etc.. but for some very

wouldn't wanna go without it.
*BUT* it will take quite sometime to get rid of the mouse (could be
months) then few months to master the toy. I have been using tablet
nearly 2 decades or never use mouse for over a decade.
I keep on using both, because while it is impossible to do a signature
with a mouse, it is clumsy to use a pen for clicking here and there
and why will I use a pen to crop with etc.
Thanks for all the continuing input people. I recently got done
watching a video from Photoshop Cafe, "Photoshop Secrets - Wacom
Tablets and Photoshop," with Colin Smith and Wes Maggio (no plug
intended). After watching this vid I must say, I HAVE TO HAVE ONE!
Wow, I don't think I could have imagined how useful these things could
be and how far they have come with the technology. It's even inspiring
me to draw, (plus it should come in handy with Flash 8 as another
benefit). For my main purposes of selection, I don't know if the
tablet will be mega-more precise than a precision mouse/track ball,
but at least equally so and man will it ever be more efficient than a
mouse after you get used to it. Especially toggling back and forth
from direct select to quick mask mode. And the EASY opacity changes
for transparency with the brush pressure levels? One word: awesome. In
fact, after seeing what these things can do, I think I'm going to go
with the 6x8 Intuos3 rather than the 4x6. I've been contemplating
having a tablet since '02. I think it's time to get one.
It's no difference than a regular pen, but as long as you keep reaching
for the mouse then you will never be able to get the max out of the pen.
I said, it's much more than selecting, or it's little easier but not much
difference comparing to mouse, but for other then it's day and night
As I mentioned, learn not to use mouse but PEN only on everything for
around a month or so, and hopefully you will no longer need mouse by then.
And if you still using mouse for other then PEN may not be a good idea as
you will never be able to master it.
