    Hi

    Any ideas on which graphics tablet to start out with - I'm very experienced with Photoshop and Illustrator, but only with a mouse! :D Also, I'm thinking of getting an iMac. Will the 20 incher be adequate or is it worth getting an extra 4 inches of screen space?

    Thanks :)

    Hi there. I edited your post to remove the request for a font. Fonts are also licensed software and requests to send links and so forth fall under this part of the forum rules:

    Hi

    I only asked if someone could show me how to make the Apple Pro Font or provide me with a link to buy it if it is sold under a name. I wasn't asking for serials - where did you get that idea?:confused:

    If you wish to buy the font, it is called Myriad Pro. If you Google it, then you'll find plenty of vendors. :)

    Yeah, I've already bought that, but the font seen here (headline) - http://www.apple.com/macpro/

    With the colour gradient - how would I make that?

    I asked my friend who is professional artist/illustrator about which tablet to get just for fun (I will never be an artist!), and the one I had chosen he said was a good recommendation;

    Its under £50 on Amazon UK

    You can add colour gradients to text on photoshop. Select the text layer and underneath the layers tab, click on "Add a layer style" and click gradient overlay.

    Thanks, but I'm looking for something a little more professional. I'm not using it 'just for fun' :D

    a bamboo fun will suit you just fine. they come in 4x6 and also a bigger size, which escapes me right now. they are very reasonably priced and a good investment. dont let the 100 dollar price tag and the name "fun" fool you. it is a very powerful tool.
