    Wacom Tablet

    Does anyone use or has anyone used a Wacom Tablet for your graphic design? If so any reviews or feedback? I'm wondering if it is worth the hefty price tags.

    I'm guessing you mean Wacom tablets? If so, I use a smaller one when doing stuff in Illustrator. A lot of people swear by it, they use that instead of a mouse for everything.

    It's only worth it if you get one of the bigger ones, like the 6x9.

    In short, I like em. I feel they're worth what they charge.

    Also been wondering about these, waiting for feedback. Shift has one (I believe?), mainly waiting for his input. :]

    Meh, I'll just stick with mah laser until I get decent. Unless I get the job at a printing shop I interviewed for. w00t. I would start in the t-shirt room, but I could work my way up to design :rolleyes:

    Price is a biggy for me right now.

    (isn't it for you too tyler?)

    I have a little 4x6 one, the cheapest model 4 years ago when I bought it, $100.

    Ones out now have hotkeys you can add to em so you can switch brushes, switch cursors, etc. Theyre also pressure-sensitive. For example, if you push down harder, your brush stroke is going to be thicker. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

    It's fun to use it in a program called Corel Painter, which is pretty much a digital canvas with your choice of brushes.

    Lol, Adam. My budget is so low it's living in the core of the earth right now. I don't really want to spend the $620 I got in the bank right now, just for the sake of having it...
