I'm getting interested in buying a tablet, most likely a Wacom Intuos4 Medium.
I don't do much retouching work at all, and what little I do is done in Lightroom. I have Photoshop Elements, which I rarely use, and do not have Photoshop.
Periods of mouse work really start to bother my hand, so I'm considering it for the ergonomic differences, as well as any productivity improvements it might offer while getting around in LR.
My editing computer is a Vista 64-bit build with dual monitors, and my main monitor is oriented vertically, as I tend to shoot more in portrait than landscape.
Will I be happy using the tablet that way? Is it better to orient the tablet the same way, with the buttons and touch ring on the top or bottom, or leave it horizontal and lose part of the functional tablet area due to the mismatched orientation?
