(Using Photoshop - the pencil tool) I'm having difficulty making
> a smooth line,

Hi Liz - I use the airbrush tool for tracing in PS - using a thinner
line, stylus pressure adjustments, and adjusting the hardness setting to
give a bit of softness to the line (which can be done for the pencil
tool, as well). I like Paul's suggestion of using the glove. Also, I
found that putting on one of those soft rubber things that allows for a
fatter grip helps tremendously in the hand fatigue department (i.e.,
putting it on the stylus).

Good luck -
