Wacom Advise

Hello Everyone,

I have never had a tablet/pen of any kind. I was wondering what people's reactions to them might be here.

Do people recommend certain brands, sizes, types (i.e., Intuos ect.)

Also it bears mentioning that I don't have piles of money.

I have not been a painterly photoshopper, more of a "try and make it seamless guy", and for that the mouse has worked fine. But I think I would like to make some more pieces from scratch, and the tables seem like they would really help. Maybe not?

Thanks for the input.
-Trent

You might try going to Craigslist in the Electronics category and then searching "Wacom". I've seen all types of new and old models and years listed for sale ranging from $10 to $2500. The Wacom website, as I recall, has free downloadable drivers for all models and years. Try one out and if you do not like it, sell it back on Craigslist.

Another suggestion is to go to a big box electronics store (not their website) and talk to the sales person or manager about their return policy. Buy a new one and try it out. If you do not like it, return it.

A photochopper is someone who composes the same image day after day without repeating themselves.

I like the return it to try it idea. Thanks for the reply! Newegg.com actually has some really good deals. They have a small one for under 90 bucks with shipping. I'll check craigslist and see.

Thanks!

I have a basic Wacom. They sell spare pens if you lose one.
