Re: Wacom questions

If you keep an eye on ebay you can find an older Wacom for a good price. I got mine there and love it. Just make sure you check the seller's ratings. Also has pretty good prices. I'm a penny pincher and would say the Wacom is well worth your money.

OK, there's always someone who makes things confusing by disagreeing. So let it be me this time.

Actually I don't disagree, but just have a different opinion. I have never used a tablet in my work. (Some may say, "Sure looks like it too!") I have a Wacom tablet and pen sitting on my desk, but sit is all it does. I tried it when I first bought it and found it combersome. So went back to the mouse and have used it ever since.

So, to each his own.

Re: Wacom questions

If do any clipping the pen makes it soooo much easier and faster. I programmed the top button on the stylus as the option key, (on the mac holding the option keys is "pick up path") so now I very rarely touch the keyboard when doing clipping paths. Also, because the pen is pressure sensitive using the bush in an adjustment mask is a breeze.

Re: Wacom questions

It's funny, but the pen tool is probably the only tool I haven't really delved into yet. I need to do that!

Re: Wacom questions

My Wacom is collecting dust. I just never got the hang of using it.

If you are nimble with your mouse and like the results you get you probably can get away without a Wacom .

I am not a pro ./ Someone doing work on photos all day long might have another opinion.

Re: Wacom questions

Thanks Cinderella.
After thinking about this for a few days now, I think that the next purchase I make will be a better higher-resolution monitor instead. I think it might be the better thing to do instead of a Wacom. That doesn't mean I still wouldn't like one to try. Maybe next year
