    Does the PS CS3 works with pen based tablet? Any special software needed?

    Of course it does. Wonder why you asked the question. Maybe something I missed?

    my guess is that the TS would think using a Touch screen would need addition software as the way to do actions are different from a mouse.

    TS didn't ask about touch screen, only pen base tablet.

    Reason I ask is, jsut want to be sure there are no hidden problem the TS noticed or experienced.

    My Wacom worked flawlessly with CS3.

    Thank you for all your replies.

    I am considering getting a Fujitsu tablet PC. But I have no experience in CS3 with a tablet- normally use mouse as input. With a pen-based input, I just want to be sure that I do not need to purchase other s/w.

    but u lose your keyboard in the process.
    which cuts down your efficiency.

    Also note that tablet PC's are usually quite underpowered -- 1.2GHz? 512MB RAM? My guess will be that PS CS3 will run slowwwwwly on the tablet machine.

    I am looking at the Fujitsu T4220 C2D 2GHz and 2GB. Hopefully it should be sufficient.

    In your experience with the slate, is it more convenient to use the pen instead of a mouse for PS?

    i'm too used to using a pen already, even in msn i write to people instead of typing.

    sometimes i prefer a combi of both in PS, when brushing, physically touching up an image etc, erasing something etc i would prefer a pen, its more accurate, but when it comes to curve adjustment, or clicking around various functions in PS, a mouse is fine as well, with a mouse you cover larger screen distances in a small movement..

    can i check again?

    CS3 doesn't load in previous actions that i've created/downloaded for CS2?

    can i just ask if CS3's array of effects is alot more convincing than CS2's stuff?

    sorry i've got a copy of CS3 but have been hesitant to install it due to over-reliance on CS2

    only irritating thing i experience about pen tab vs large screen.....

    i've to estimate more accurately my pen movements!
    ARGH!
    lol

    CS3 works perfectly with a tablet (:
    i'm using a HP tablet PC and CS3, and the pen allows really for really accurate touchups (:
