OK, here's on odd question: I seem to have lost the POTN icon that used to show up on the top of my mozilla screen... .the little blue camera icon.... in the tab. The is now a white, blank space next to the room thread.

Anyone else experiencing this?

That's the favicon. It is placed there by potn. I checked on my mozilla (usually use chrome) and it's there for me. Not sure why it would show for some and not others though.

thx Brenda and Will.

It's odd. As far as I know, I haven't made any changes and the tab icon has been there since I joined back in 2011. It's only been gone for a week or so.

PS: All the other tabs have the tab icons present.

If some of you are still working with just a mouse, you may want to check this out. Depending on the type of work you're doing you might have considered buying a graphics tablet but were put off at the thought of dropping $150, $250 or more on a Wacom. At least that's what I was thinking when my old KB Gear Jam Tablet conked out on me after 8 years or so. :-x

In that case you might want to look into one of these Monoprice graphics tablets.

For the most part I'd say don't worry too much about the larger sizes. The tablet doesn't need to be anything near the size of your monitor. My old tablet was a 7x5 and I replaced it with this Monoprice 8x6 and that's about all the desktop space I'm willing to give up. Plus this package comes with an extra stylus and a couple extra replaceable pen tips.

http://www.monoprice.c​om …?p_id=5553&seq=​1&format=2 (external link)

I've never used a Wacom but I can't imagine it working any better than this Monoprice tablet. So far this thing has been working as smooth as butter. It even has a bunch of hotkey buttons and programmable shortcut buttons on it, but I haven't dove that deep into all the options yet. Much better sensitivity than my old tablet and best of all at $42 a whole lot cheaper than a Wacom. :-D

Oh hey it's my tablet, I have the biggest one from Monoprice. It sits with my Pelican cases since I put it away for gaming. ;x

I use my Wacom Capture for my 99.7% of my needs every week, but I am not yet a fan f using the pen for photo editing work... I find the movements to jerky - not enough control... I rather use my finger for Photoshop Elements 'Content Aware' or Lightroom brush strokes....

I really went 180 degrees on the Wacom tablet thing... 6 months ago I was pretty convinced it was half-baked and not suited to my needs.

I am not attached to Wakom - use what is great quality for the price that suits your needs.

Thanks, for this. I had no idea monoprice had something like this. I've always just associated them with really good cables at cost.

What's the advantage to using a tablet? Can a mouse and tablet be connected at the same time?

Yes... Just got it Friday and spent some time working with it over the weekend. Documentation leaves a little to be desired but no problem getting it installed and working on two WinXP desktops. Think it's supposed to work up thru Vista and Win7 and even some Mac platforms.

It won't replace my mouse for every job but works great for brushwork, cloning, masking and isolating. A bit too sensitive by default but the included software allows for easy adjustment. LOL! So much nicer than the old KB Gear Jam Tablet that I'm replacing with it. The stylus finally conked out on it after 8 years! :lol:

The advantage to me is when selecting objects with the lasso. I shoot a lot of cars and I generally sharpen the the whole car or parts of the car that I want to stand out more on a background and selecting those are so easy with a tablet. It is also great for doing brush work because it's pressure sensitive I'm not constantly changing the size of the brush I just press a little harder or softer.

Yes you can mouse at the same time as long as you have enough USB ports.

Tablet is good for skin retouching because the pen is pressure sensitve. It's like real brush.

If i'm not retouching i'm using my mouse. Yes you can connect both. Just make sure the pen is not on the tablet when using mouse.
