I don't know if it is worth it or not. I am using Gimp right now. I do decent by hand withdrawing but I want to get into graphic design more. I bought a tablet and all that. I am just not sure if it would be worth it to buy photoshop or just stick to Gimp. Is there a trial where I can see if I can use it before I buy it? I don't wanna waste money.

It isn't cheap which I am sure you know. I can't say if you should buy it or not. I have only used it a handful of times on a friend's computer. Never owned it cause I personally don't like it. For what I work on, I prefer Krita. That is a free drawing and art software. You can give that a try if you want.

Stick to gimp. Photoshop is only worth it if you plan on doing heavy editing not just graphic art. Gimp has more than enough for what you will be doing anyways.

I decided against it for now. Thanks for your feedback guys. It seems like it is so pricey for what it is too. I am going to check out Krita as well. Never heard of it before.
