  • Getting started tablet

    I've been looking into investing in a drawing tablet for my macbook. I don't want anything super nice or expensive since im not very experienced, so my price range is less than $100 (preferably more like $50). I've done some research and many people seem to think wacom's are the best drawing tablets, and they have their bamboo tablet that seems to be pretty good for what I'm looking for, but I just wanted to know some experienced opinions. Would this be a good tablet to get? Or is there a better one in the same price range I should look into? I know it only has 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, which seemed to be lower than many other tablets I've been looking at, so is that really a big deal? Or would it even be something a novice would notice? Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated

      Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

      I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

      These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

      I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

      Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.

      The fee still works out to about...
