Do any of you use laptops or do you think it's better to use a mouse?

I prefer a mouse than a lil' pad that you have to use your finger to navigate with though you can buy a mouse for lab tops. It all depends, I've always used a mouse, so I'm used to it and conformable using it.

^ I find it easier to use the mouse. Somehow that "lil pad" isn't made to draw with.

i use the touchpad.
i like the way mac has the multiple finger commands.
if i need to draw it out, i position my hand like i'm holding a pencil and use my fingertip.
but this is all been since nov. i been using a mouse since forever.

if it comes out choppy... do what Ron said and zoom in real close and trace the whole image withe polygonal lasso tool... the select inverse and press delete. takes some practice but its not that hard and you can snag some nice results.

hope that helps!!!
I'm coming in extremely late here.

IMO, the very best way to get a silhouet is to use the free hand pen tool.
You'll need to learn to get the hang of it, but it gives the best results.
No choppyness, no jagged edges etc....

Just make a selection around the figure you wanna make a silhouet of, and fill it in with whatever color.

How do I add a bleed to an album cover? How big does it have to be?

Most places only require an 1/8th of an inch bleed. So if you just expand your document size by .125" on all sides you'll be all set. Make sure though you expand your colors and images into the bleed area. The whole purpose of the bleed is so that when the cover gets trimmed you dont see a line of white if the trimming shifts. But at the same time you have to make sure that your text and important stuff stays in the safe zone.

Use this link to download a template to help. Depending on what program and how many panels you're doing, you can pick what one you need.

I don't really understand that template, the area for the cover is too wide.
