Just a quick poll to see how many members are using graphics tablet in their digital photography workflow.

Maybe I'm just not used to it but I've tried using a Wacom tablet at my previous workplace and I'm much slower using that when doing editing as compared to using a mouse.

My personal opinion is that a tablet is more suited for people doing drawings and illustration. Photo editing work? Keyboard and mouse works much better. It's very hard to use shortcuts on the keyboard when using the tablet.

Well..its a little tricky to get used to the tablet for the first time users. My advice is try to use it as a mouse first. Then once you get used to it, you'll be happy.

And for photoediting, its very useful. especially dealing with layer masks in photoshop, as well as other tools like burn, dodge, etc. Pressure sensitivte tablets are highly recommended.

Just to ask, do you guys find the mouse attachment for the Wacom tablets more sensitive than those "hi end" mice (ie, Razor Diamondbacks)?

I've managed to try a Intuos 3 tablet for some masking work, and although it's much easier to control compared to a mouse, I can't get used to it. When it comes to less options that require less precision (ie, Bezier curves), I find the mouse easier to manipulate.

Anyone knows what's a good size? IMHO the 6x8" is a tad too big for me.

LOL!! :bsmilie:

Guess it just takes getting used to..
I oso swear that a mouse is just as good when I started doing DI and would switch back to it whenever I'm not airbrushing and perhaps when pathing.
But it becomes handy once you get the hang of it.

Haha! That makes two of us. i gave up after a few tries. Table no space. And just can't get used to it. i even tried using it for Counterstrike. Ended up spinning round and round with the slightest move of the pen.


Maybe some kind soul can conduct a 'tablet tutorial'. Just to show and familarise others with the tablet way of working.

Anyone here beside me thinks the eraser end is totally useless ;) ?...

Come to tink of it, it'll probably be more useful if it's an actual pen nip! haha..
