Equipment – Wacom Tablet


I made a reference in yesterday’s post to my tablet. Some of you may have not worked with one before so I thought it’d be a great equipment post.

The best thing to happen to retouching since photoshop - © 2010 Kurtis Stewart

This is my Intuos 3 Wacom Tablet, it makes retouching an absolute dream. It is a device that translates the movements of the pen on the tablet to movement on your screen (read as, makes a pen act like a mouse…that’s pressure sensitive). Most of my retouching work could not be done as quickly without this piece of equipment.

Wacom is now up to Intuos 4 but I don’t like their new mouse as it has only three buttons whereas the old version has 5, perhaps I’ll get one further down the road.

Try one out, guarantee you won’t clone stamp with a mouse/trackpad again.
