So I'm looking to get into photoshop. Primarily because as a marketing student it's an essential skill to have but why not let my pixels reap the rewards of some cool manips too!

I currently have a MacBook Air but I doubt my photoshopping skills would be effective when using just a build in trackpad...

So i'm looking to invest in a iPad with the pen too.. but its a big investment for something that may not be suitable..

So my questions to you guys is, what sort of equipment do you guys use when using photoshop?

I'd love to hear everyones opinions, even if its just photoshop advice as I haven't used it in about 10 years!

Thank you all!

This isn't advice, but I also have a MacBook Air, and you're correct. The trackpad isn't very efficient. I'll be looking in the comments for recommendations :)

I use my laptop and a drawing tablet or plug in mouse and haven't had much issue.

Also, definitely go to the adobe website and log in with your student email. Your school may offer it for free like mine does xD

You can get a decent drawing tablet on Amazon for like $50. Totally worth it!

I have just downloaded it and unfortunately it seems my university cut costs and didn't include photoshop in the package

Yeah I've considered a cheaper tablet but I feel they won't withstand over time. Luckily I work for a telecommunications company so I get good discounts just don't want to tie myself into another contract

Maybe I'll just try and mouse first and see how I get along!

Try ebay I got my bamboo tablet off there in excellent condition for 11, because the people selling it literally didn't know what it was lol xD

Might just get a small bargain on there.

I use a pc, but recently got an Ipad and pencil. I had to get an app to let me connect the ipad to the computer, but I found i really loved using the pencil with photoshop. Im not that great at manips yet, but it was fun to use it.
