    Expensive,but by far the best tablets are Wacom.

    I've got a fairly cheap wacom tablet in front of me at work, it cost around £300 about a year ago.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but it sounds like your starting off. If that is the case then get yourself a copy of Photoshop or even elements and learn the software using a mouse first.

    That way you can make a good judgment call on whether or not to invest in a proper tablet. The cheap ones all feel rubbish, the pens tend to badly weighted and are hard to adjust too. I have the tracing feature too, bit of a waste of time, its easier to scan and then draw it using a drawing tool.

    Thanks for the help all taken onboard.
    Yes as you say im a beginner for sure but have always wanted to get a step further than just bog standard image creation etc....
    For instance its my fiances sisters 30th on friday and i wanted to make a card with a difference, she loves jude law and i wanted to make a picture with her and jude law in but looking realistic...ie: movie premiere, movie scene but i cannot get any good results just cutting and pasting etc...Nothing looks realistic but my thinking is using the pen facility i could maybe get the result i desire!

    Thanks alot
