    Pen Tablets

    Hey Guy's n Girl's,

    Just wondering if anyone uses a pen tablet with Lightroom and/or Photoshop?

    Any good, benefits etc? I was thinking of getting one but wanted some feedback first

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    I have a Bamboo Touch and Pen that I use with photo shop. I find that it is more accurate than the mouse for selecting items, though I'm left handed so I find my self holding the pen in my left to make the selections and using the mouse for the menus in my right.

    Used to use them, once you get the hang of it they're great and I have to say the new Intous 5 has me debating one again.

    Yep, I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun and it is brilliant. Great for brush work in Lightroom and Photoshop, wouldn't be without it. Much more accurate and quick to use than a mouse.
