Re: How many use Wacom tablets?

At work i use it 100% of the time. The only reason i got a mouse at my desk, is in case someone need to borrow my computer.

People have mentioned specific tasks they where they prefer a mouse over the wacom, but i think you can do it all as good with the pen if you give it a chance, and some time.
(well, maybe not in Max and that left-handed thingy )

It takes some training, but once you get there you'll se how much easier, it it to mask with a pen...
I Probaly save at least 2 hours a day, using the pen....

I have a small Wacom, early version, but do much better with the mouse. Once in a while I'll use the tablet. I don't do retouch work, but do restoration work professionally.

for easy masking I use a higher dpi, for path work that needs more delicate/slow handling I tend to take it down to 600 dpi...The thing is, laser mouse is more accurate than optical when it comes to small movements...so your accuracy will be better...I bought my laser mouse to work in photoshop before I bought my wacom, so that's maybe why I'm sticking to it!

Re: How many use Wacom tablets?

I shot an old Wacom PL-400 on eBay.. pretty good.. It was made du be used with a special grafics card, but theres an adapter available, now. It's simply great to use a pressure sensitive pen on a screen.. I especially admire when doing freehand jobs. The costs for a tablet aren't that high, but the advantage is!

Never used a tablet before today.
My Intuos3 arrived safely and I love it. I cannot use it properly yet but I have noticed my wrist and fingers are not sore even after 3 hours. I usually feel discomfort after an hour of using my marble mouse.

Re: How many use Wacom tablets?

I bought an Intuos A4-wide. I use it for just about everything, not just photoshop work. Almost every app is improved, and my hand doesn't ache any more. and the extra bonus is you can spin your pen when you are thinking, like you used to do at school.Try that with a mouse! It took a day to get used to it and about 3 to never want to go back.
