I'm tired of using a mouse. I want a pen tablet
I've read reviews online, but am a little confused
Different sites have completely different pens listed as their "favorites." I've seen PORT and Toshiba listed at the top on one site, while Wacom is atop another, and yet another site picks Adesso as the best. All I have learned in my research is that it is VERY subjective. Well, if I want an opinion, I can just get that here
What I'm looking for:
-Affordable. I do not want to spend over $200 on the thing. I'm a self-taught amateur and hobbyist using Photoshop Elements 10; not a pro
-Preferably wired. I typically don't like wireless tech. I hate batteries and the signal dropping. I don't use wireless for any of my peripherals. However, if you can vouch for the reliabitly and battery life, I would consider it.
-It doesn't have to be lightweight or portable. I only do this at home and it won't be going with me anywhere.
-Performance. Although I'm not a pro, I want the thing to be better than a mouse; that's the whole point
I also have a couple of quesions. I keep seeing "pressure sensitivity" and "tilt sensitivity" shown. What gives? Once I set my tool strength in Photoshop, isn't that the end of it? Also, will a pen tablet work with Photoshop Elements 10?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer
