So I went out and got the Wacom Bamboo tablet today and I’m very happy with it. I’ve been missing a tablet since I got my Mac when my old one stopped working (the only one that Wacom makes that don’t support Macs) but now I’ve upgraded to the Bamboo which is perfect for my use!
I couldn’t be happier with it and the size of A6 does fit myself very well, since I don’t really need a larger one and I don’t have money for it either!
So just a quick update on the new tablet purchase!
Some quick colour shortcuts; when you have a foreground and a background colour. Press the letter “X” on the keyboard to flip them around and press “D” to revert them to the default!

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, for Windows only!
Adobe has released their Photoshop Elements, Version 6, so far for Windows only. Apparently Mac users will be getting their hands on a new Elements version, not until early 2008 and that’s because “Elements for the Mac is on a difference development schedule than on the PC” according to Adobe. Anyway, check out the PhotoshopElementsUser.com site for the new learning center they’ve put together to make your learning of Elements 6 quick and painful!

That’s it for todays little news update! Now I’m just out to get the Wacom Bamboo tablet since I badly need a new tablet! I’ll write something up on how it works later!
Last week I won the award “Image of the Week” on the NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) website, much to my surprise. I was of course very thrilled about just the recognition of me and my image. When I found out that I also got a free training DVD from them, as a prize, I went even happier. So I settled on choosing the Adobe Illustrator CS3 Down and Dirty Tricks by Corey Barker, because I feel I know Photoshop very well, but I would love to learn Illustrator more. Today I received the DVD, which was very fast considering shipping from the US! I just love it! Kudos to Corey for making such a smashing DVD!!
I’m also looking at purchasing a new Wacom Tablet, namely the Bamboo (since my old don’t work on the Mac) because it seems like a great value for the money and it suits my price range! I’ll keep you posted!
