For some time I've thought about getting a Waicom tablet to use for editing.  While I don't do a huge amount, I do from time to time try to restore old family photos, some of which are pretty ragged.  I find I get a bit of OOS if I use the mouse too much and am wondering about the Waicom tablets?




Does anyone have experience with these - thanks.

I have extensive experience with Wacom tablets. I use a Large Intuos Pro


It's very useful and comfortable for detailed work that requires movements that a mouse would not be able to provide without straining your wrist.


I never use the touch features, and I have used several touch enabled tablets to try Photoshop work but they're always too small and your hand covers up the screen.  I would like to spend some time with a Cintiq but I'm not a millionaire unfortunately.

Thanks - that's very helpful.  I'm leaning towards the medium at present.  I watched someone use one yesterday, so might go back and ask what size that one is before ordering.




Thanks again

I have an older non otuch one and they work well. I would suggest getting one with a large area, as you can always scale down the area that is active. Whereas if it is too small, it is hopeless. It can be a bit of a pain with multiple screens, as to how you want it to work for you.
