Re: 1st tablet need some advice

I bought the bamboo small when i started out

http://www.amazon.com/Bamboo-Small-P...1753945&sr=8-1

it is almost the least expencive one they have, so far i cant thing of a single bad thing to say about it. It works so damn well its freaky. I have never felt the need to upgrade to a pricier model. The center touch pad on the top scrolls in and out, 4 programable buttons, the pen works flawlessly. the 4x6 area seems to be more than enough when you get used to it.

just make sure you dont put it in mouse mode, you want it to go corner to corner on the screen.

there is a learning curve, at first you may not like it, stick with it, in 5 minutes of photoshop you will see why people use them. 20 minuts later you will wonder how the hell you ever managed without one.

some people dont even use a mouse when they have a pad. personally i preffer using the mouse for going through filters and sliders and such. my photoshop work consist about 80% tablet, 20% mouse.

maybe i need to use something better to understand the reason in paying more, but as it stands so far it has been able to do everything i have asked of it.

Oddly Amazon UK don't stock that and I can't seem to log into the US site with my UK login credentials. I will have a scout around the rest of the net to see if elsewhere stocks it.

Thanks though.
