  • Do you use a Wacom Tablet?

    I am interested to know how many people use Wacom tablets. My main interest is Beauty and Fashion retouching and I am contemplating buying one.

      I love my tablet! I have the Wacom 5x3 or whatever the smallest one is. I really enjoy for some of the brush work in PS. I use kb, mouse and tablet pretty equally depending on the tool. For example, I find my cropping is more accurate with the mouse. Dodging, burning, making freehand selections are easier with the tablet. And switching tools is very easy with the kb. It's just another tool to make some things easier.

        I still use my mouse a fair bit, but find the tablet terrific particularly for things like fine masking.

        If in doubt, you can always get an entry model - like the 4x5 Graphire3 - that's what I have and I think it's a great extra tool.

        Have a search in the forum - there are a number of lengthy threads on Wacom tablets already.

          Funny, I used to wish I had one but now, I dunno, I just kinda prefer my mouse. Guess I just am used to it.

            Jobs that require Wacom tablet experience

            I have seen some retouching jobs that specify experience on a Wacom tablet.

              Wacom For Shure!

              A Tablet Is defenetly needed when you are retouching! Alot of advantages to using a mouse. I takes a little practice to get used to it. A tablet is preassure sensitive... meaning i reads the preassure on you you use your pen creating unachiavable results that the mouse can't. When it comes to size of tablet ... size matters. I use a Wacom Intuos 6" X 8" and it works for me. The 9" X 12" its nice but at least for me is not as portable. I travel alot so I stick with the 6" X 8". Hope this helps you out...

                  I'm using the Wacom Cintiq 21UX. That's the one where the monitor is built into the surface of the tablet so that you use the pen right on screen.

                  I will never to back to using just a mouse.

                      I have a Wacom and an el'cheapo Aiptek model. I recommend the Wacom.

                        I use a wacom for everything. I don't even have a mouse attached to the computer anymore.
                        I can't even imagine retouching with a mouse now.

                            Working with the mouse is like drawing with a bar of soap. The tablet and pen makes it far easier and quicker for me.

                              Wacom of course

                              it gives a far more natural 'feel' especially when brushing.

                                Hello. I was just wondering who here uses a Wacom Tablet or something similar and who uses a mouse? I've never used a tablet because I don't really use Photoshop for a lot of drawing and figured it was more of a tool for a real artist. The other thing is that I really, really like my present mouse...

                                Any one use one of these? Can I get by with a medium or hold out for a large?

                                Can I use the mouse with the tablet and do you find a point on a small screen?

                                Any thoughts....Thank you.......

                                Anyone use a Wacom tablet mouse?
                                by DJ Dubovsky
                                With the recent thread about computer mice, I wondered if anyone who has a Wacom tablet also uses the mouse that goes with it. I like the idea of a cordless, batteryless optical mouse so I was hoping someone may have had experience with it.

                                by Kristin
                                I just bought an Aiptek graphics tablet (9x12) in the states. I decided that it was a much less expensive investment than the $860 canadian price tag for the Wacom one. Does anyone use an Aiptek tablet? I literally just installed the software for it tonite so I could use any feedback anyone has to...
