Hey thanks! I thought it wasn't bad for just 20 minutes.
Oh you did? That's cool especially since you now have a working tablet.
I think it is. I still have Photoshop CS3,4, and 5 and this version is the best when it comes to painting. Just be sure you know how to do it since some of the functions is a little different than the previous ones. Here's a simple video on how it works, I know you'll find it useful.

Actually, I've been having some trouble with it. For some reason the brush cursor (not sure if that's what you'd call it exactly) glitches out on me a lot. :/ When I'm resizing the brush especially. I don't know how to explain it, but if I make the brush bigger, even slightly, it looks funny and when I make it smaller three cursors appear (but the same one still works) and these things only go away when I move the cursor off the canvas and back again. It's not impossible to work with, just annoying. Lol Any suggestions? XD
Hmm, sounds like the 3d brush feature to me. Instead of a basic round cursor we are used to the previous versions CS5 uses bristle brushes to simulate actual painting. So on screen the cursor would be moving the lines around to give you an idea of the brush angle in 3d. Try a basic brush instead of the bristle brush and see if the same thing occurs. If it still is then something is weird going on. Oh, did you try the i dropper tool yet? I like how I can pick colors and compare it to the previous color. Very easy to pick the right shade.
