These great machines allows you to edit your photography on the computer using Adobe Photoshop. They allow editing whether it be taking out the background and adding a black n white themed effect.

 

Personally I find them a very useful tool and defiantly any photographer should have without a doubt, as they are becoming far more accessible as the price becomes lower.

I've never used a graphics tablet and I've thought that it would be very difficult to do when you're looking at a screen in front of you and you're trying to draw on the tablet that's horizontal on your desk. I feel like it would take a lot of skill and practice to use one of those, but I've seen many professionals using them.

 

Do you know what the learning curve for those of these is?

I wonder if the iPad will replace traditional graphics tablets in the future. There's already lots of iPad-made art out there, and just recently I remember reading about new styluses coming out that would make it even easier to draw on an iPad.

I have used tablets during my animation course and though initially it was weird getting used to it but once you get the hang of it it's a pretty good tool to have. But there is one certain catch that one should consider before going for a tablet.

 

When we use a mouse the movements of our hand are solely controlled by our wrist but when it comes to a tablet whole hand of ours comes into play as well as we have to learn how to control our hand's pressure as well.

 

 So for those who are good at sketching a tablet is a easy to learn thing. But for those who are not so good at freehand sketching a tablet can be very hideous device they will do better with a mouse. (Like me.)

Well, that's not exactly what they do. They basically replace your computer's mouse with something shaped like a pen and paper, making it simpler to do artist work on the computer for people who prefer traditional methods.

 

My parents gave me one in my early teenage years but I was an idiot at the time and it got broken somehow (don't remember how). What sucks is that I now want one so that I can do proper illustrations and stuff on the computer because I love drawing freehand (basically the only way I can draw).

 

As for editing photos, I probably wouldn't use one for that. I'm too used to using my mouse!

Not yet, the iPad screens aren't sensitive or precise enough to replace a Wacom / graphics tablet. However, the Samsung Galaxy Note phones and I *think* the Samsung Galaxy Tabs both use Wacom screens, so they are effectively graphics tablets themselves.
