Heard good things about the Wacom tablets. Are there any places that do good deals on them? Does the Wacom site do Black Friday offers? Hoping to find one somewhere lower than th… Read more

If you do want a new graphics tablet for drawing I would say stay clear of Wacom. You are paying way over the odds for the brand. For years they were the goto brand, nothing came close. Today it's not the case, Huion or XP-Pen (Both easily available on Amazon, loads of models for various budgets) do the same job, often better for much less cost. They still work with the same software that the Wacom will. Youtube is a great place to look for reviews.


It was the only place that buy these drawing pads. I sold it really cheaply but it was unused and brand new. They resell them at reasonable prices and they had loads of models. Next best place I saw these tablets on sale were Amazon when I was looking around to see how much the tablet was worth.


Didn't think of looking there


hubby got given one and we didn't need it so i sold it to CEX. they seem to have loads so maybe try them? i know they are second hand but you can get different grades of second hand.


tbh its my daughters that are the artists. They both seem happy to use their laptops (hp elite x2's) I cant remember exactly which model wacom but it was one that is sold as a business note taking product but can also be used for drawing - it was the wacom DTU range - I'd need to ring daughter to find exact model. It isnt the greatest but it was the cheapest I'd ever seen a wacom with draw on screen.

Which Wacom Intuos to buy?
I’d like to buy my 10 year old daughter a Wacom tablet as she loves creating digital art. I have decided on the Wacom Intuos models as I don’t have a big budget. However there seem… Read more

Thank you :) you’ve been very helpful, great tip about the size and will check out Amazon warehouse. I’m leaning towards the one with the buttons 55.99 model. Thanks again


Which ever model you decide to get, I'd always recommend the Small version. I've got 2 of their tablets (expensive and cheap), they've both Small and I always remap the drawing area to a small size. I would probably buy this, if you didn't want extra buttons on the tablet itself: www.amazon.co.uk/Wacom-CTL-472-N-Small-Creative-Tablet/dp/B07N525974 And this version, if you did want extra buttons: www.amazon.co.uk/Wacom-K100981-Intuos-Small-Tablet/dp/B079QBDTDF Usually the buttons can be programmed as short cuts for commands or to open other applications. Which can be useful. Also check out the Amazon Warehouse section for deals. If you're not in a rush to buy one, I'd wait until Black Friday for regular and Warehouse (20% off) discounts. It also might be worth joining the Wacom forum to ask there too. http://forum.wacom.eu/viewforum.php?f=6&sid=f3cb17f44eedd2aac9b170c217a25d3e

Wacom Tablet on MS Paint
Nothing serious, just want one to mess about with. How do they work? When using a mouse, you have to press and hold left click to draw on MS Paint. Do you have to press and hold a … Read more

I use a Wacom tablet for Photoshop. It's very easy to use. I'd recommend buying the smallest sized tablet you can get. The drawing surface configurable/mappable, so you can just use, for example, a 1/4 of the surface and it will translate the pen's movements to cover the entire area of your monitor. It works similar to a Mouse's DPI settings. A low number takes more hand movement to cover a distance, than a high number. The pen and maybe the tablet you buy, have buttons. Which are are configurable to act as a mouse left click or even opening your email client. You won't regret buying one.


no need to hold a button. just draw. krita is free drawing software with lots of capability- inc pressure sensitivity
