    Can I use a mouse to do all that photoshoppery instead?

    Doing that kind of thing with a gamepad just makes my brain wail in protest at the inefficiency.

      Thats exactly what I thought. Thinking of pointing so much with a thumbstick makes my thumbs hurt. Its what turned me off from LBP...that and the slightly shitty way the controls felt.

        Same. The lack of mouse support in LBP really killed my enthusiasm to get creating. I mean the interface was fine for the PS3 controller, but if you had a mouse it would've been a bit easier and certainly much faster.
