Hello yesterday I got a Wacom Tablet small, and I must say it going to take some time to get use to using this.. Anyone else using one?

I use a medium Intuos5 & love it.

I have to admit that it was a little weird at first.

I also have just purchased a Intuos small and I must say it has been a struggle for me. I'm just an old dog and it's tough to teach me new tricks.

I purchased mine a few months ago and it took a little getting use to but became second nature. But I still use the mouse too. Sometimes it's easier using one over the other.

I have the Intuos 4 small version. Found it very awkward to use at first. In fact, I quit using it for a while as I was too lazy to work on getting used to it. I finally decided that I spent the money on it so had better learn to use it. What worked for me was just putting the mouse away and using only the stylus no matter how awkward it felt. It takes a while but you do get used to it. Once you get to that point, you'll be glad you did. Much better for graphics work than a mouse.

I agree with subway surfer; I still use the mouse for some things when it makes sense (ie. easier).

They are widely used for editing work in photography and nearly all that I've spoken to say that they do help improve accuracy and speed. But they all also say that its a skill you need to learn to get the best out of it - if you plug and play you'll get so far, but if you work at it and practice you'll get a whole lot further.

We oft forget that we all had to learn how to use a mouse (since for many of us it happened years ago); just work hard at it and be conscientious in practicing.


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

Just keep working at it. I am a lefty so I use the tablet lefty and the mouse righty since I am a recovering IT guy so I got used to using the mouse right handed since most people have the mouse on the right side.

I use a small, old Wacom Bamboo and I love it. It took me about a week to get used to it. I still wouldn't say I'm "good" at it - I don't use all the features - but it absolutely improves my editing and retouching.

Outside of photo editing, it's no substitute for a mouse or trackpad.
