I received 3 weeks ago a tablet Wacon Intuos 3, special to be used with Photoshop( ihave CS2). I'm learning a lot about. I never have used a tablet. I had that problem with pen pressure, solved uncheking the shape dynamics at the brush (click F5).

don't know much about the tablets, I used one in high school (about 6 years ago) in a technology lab and really hated, but didn't bother to try to learn it or get used to. I recommend getting a wrist brace. That should work, right?

Rather than go to bed at a normal hour . . . who needs sleep anyway . . .opted for a silent mode of operation . . . the wacom tablet enters the picture, frustated like a kindergardenr with a big clumsy #2 pencilheld for the first time. The wacom tablet that was avoided simply for the fact, it was different and was use to the mouse.

It feels as natural as wriring with a pen, although it takes a little getting use to, but b4 long you know exactly,and without thought, where you are and gain so much more control best of all no unaturalharmful clicking.

Have an Intuos & Graphire - You can get one for a $100 US

at first i thought nobody was using a tablet, but now the thread is here for a while it seems there are people who prefer the tablet instead of the mouse.
I still have the mouse, still no tablet cause i cant try it. I hate to buy something wich maybe in a few weeks of practice is not working for me. I still doubt what to do.

Well, I don't think you can do much wrong with it buying one. They're not that expensive anymore, so it doesn't really bites a big chunk out of your wallet.

Anyway, yesterday, my dad asked if he could try mine for the evening. After 10 minutes he was getting allready used to it. So I don't think it's a big learning curve (especially when you know my dad Laughing )

And if for some reason you still don't like it, there's always ebay or something to get rid of it Smile

I used to do stuff around here

I'm one of those people where the tablet just didn't 'take.' I'm a fine artist, so I thought I was a prime canidate for tablet-chopping.

Didn't like it.

Solved my wrist problem by doing two things: 1: pushing the keyboard back so that my arms could rest on the desk almost up to the elbow (worked wonders) and B) bought an infrared, ball-less mouse (please hold your Feral Hamster jokes until the end of the post). You wouldn't think the type of mouse has much to do with it...but it's amazing how much it takes out of your wrist to try and work with that stupid ball.

But if you still want a tablet, maybe I'll sell you mine. Like-new. Razz

I'm in the same boat as Tiff...I likes my infrared mouse...the light is pretty... Shocked

I'm in love with the tablet intuos3 Wacon.
That's my first work using only the tablet: Rolling Eyes

I was impressed the difference when I unchecked the shape dynamics at the brush (click F5). It's fantastic when you need to use the erase tool, stamp tool,...(click in one point and with shift click in another point
