  • Retouching with a mouse

    Do you have to have a tablet to do retouching and restoration

  • #2
    Absolutely not! Most people swear by a tablet. I have one, and rarely use it.

      Since I got a tablet (Christmas present) I don't think the quality of my work has improved ... the time taken to achieve it has been reduced significantly, but I think given enough time and patience you can achieve the same results with a mouse (that said, NO ONE is ever going to tae away my tablet now...).

        Like Ed, I have a tablet (Wacom) and rarely use it. I have found that I have become very adept at doing selections with a mouse. Maybe if I spent the same amout of time with a tablet, I'd feel the same way about it.

          I have a wacom tablet and find I use it for everything . I personaly find that I have more control over most aspects of Photoshop. I also do 3d graphics work and use the tablet for all spline based work.
          I have found that it did take some time to get used to but once
          I got through the learning curve I would not want to go back to a mouse only.
          Just my 2 cents.

            retouching with a mouse

            I use a wacom table and have alot more controll over a mouse and easer on the wrist to. It takes some time to get use to it butt not very long. Would not go back to a mouse for editing or drawing.

              When I upgraded my PC last year, I had to pension off my old pressure sensitive tablet as I could not get drivers for XP. Last week, I bought a new Genius Wizard Pen 5x4, and used it for a restoration over the weekend. I can't believe how I've missed the pressure sensitivity, especially when using the airbrush...

              BTW, here in South Africa the Genius is 20% of the price of the bottom end Wacom

                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.

                Wacom Tablets
                by alceria
                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...

                by North Coast Fox
                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.......

                Aiptek Graphics Tablet 9x12
                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...
