    Default Graphics tablet??

    Does anyone on here ever use Graphics tablets for designing posters? Are they any good for doing designs??

    Apologies if this silly question, just wondering if anyone recommends them...

    Cheers!

    wacom. wacom. wacom. i own three. ive used one probably every say since like 1999 or so. once you get used to it, youll never go back to a mouse. its definatly not the same as pen and ink and a scanner, but it certainly makes things alot easier once youre past that stage.

    It's just a tool. It doesn't make designing any better. It just helps you do what you already do. I like it because I feel I can be more precise than using a mouse. I am used to using a brush or quill so it's more natural to me to use a stylus pen.

    Cool, just thinking buying cheap one try it out and was wondering if worth buying one, never used them.

    Actually looking at getting wacom one, think only 35.00.

    Cheers lads!

    I've recently started trying to use my wacom more. Though I can't totally do everything with it, the pressure sensitivity makes it a million times better than a mouse for drawing and coloring.
