    I use a Bamboo Wacom Tablet. A wonderful tool. Allows for better fine adjustment than can be achieved with a mouse.

    Hi Bill,
    I have the Wacom Ituos 3 wide.
    Works much more precise then using a mouse. Also the possibility with brushing that the pressure defines the density works very nice.
    You have to get used to it, but once you have the feeling it makes your work much more comfortable.
    B.t.w. my Son has the Wacom Bamboo and he is also very happy with it. He uses it for webdesign.

    No arguments here Bill, I have the Intuos 4 medium size and after 2o plus years ultrasound work, my wrist and arm need all the help they can get.

    But she hasn't told you about terrible damage she did to her poor husband, wrestling it away from him and then denying him the chance to return it to his workplace. Oh, it was awful!

    Does this work to navigate around your computer as well? Or do you constantly have to switch between this and your mouse?

    You could, if you wish, throw the mouse away. The tablet will do it all.

    I happen to like continuing to use the mouse for everything other than photography work, but that's just personal preference. The two sit side-by-side and I just move one out of the way as required. But, that being said, I don't think I could now operate on DxO, Silver Efex Pro2 or the GIMP if I didn't have the Tablet.

    Have a read of this slightly earlier discussion on the same subject, Bill.

    WACOM tablets for photo editing

    I think everything discussed in depth there is still current.

    Hi Tommy, I use the small Bamboo tablet just for drawing so it sits to the back of my workspace. My mouse and keyboard are wireless so I just push them aside when I'm using the tablet. The tablet has really made PS edits so much easier, I wouldn't go back to the mouse for editing images.

    Hi Tommy,

    You can use it as a mouse as well (many do).

    I just bought the Bamboo for my new laptop which strangely I just rebuilt (cursed Windows 7... Ugh!). Anyway can't wait to try it out.
