Re: wacom board tips for retouching...

This'll be one of my first posts (hi)

I've had my wacom pad (Intuos) A4 oversized for well over 6 years. Its a god, really...

I use it literally everyday in my current position (along with Photoshop) editing marketing images from multiple companies to make sure they're 'clean' if you know what I mean (no messy edges). IMO this is where the Wacom stands head and shoulders above anything else on the market. If you used to do a lot of colouring as a kid, you'll pick Wacom's up, no problem (you'll see why when you get one).

This might not be the most informative of posts, but thats probably because I've not had enough coffee yet, lol.

Re: wacom board tips for retouching...

Recently, I gave my wife my old Wacom tablet,(old 4x5 which was really showing signs of alot of use) and purchased a Manhattan tablet,6x8, for almost half of what I paid for the Wacom four years ago! Yes, Wacom is the leader in Tablets, but after reading posts in other forums from satisfied users, I bought the Manhattan, and am happy with it,,can't really tell any difference in operation,quality,sensitivity, or any other area of concern. Just thought I'd pass along,,it's an alternative worth looking into, if cost is an issue!

Re: wacom board tips for retouching...

I have a 9x12 tablet. Have both the pen and airbrush. Really enjoy the tablet as it gives me control in small spaces and makes things go faster. However, I only do this as a hobby for the fun of it.

Really enjoy seeing what the pros can do to pictures. Still learning.
