Last week my graphic tablet died :-( and I needed it to finish some invitations that I was making for my nephews 2nd birthday (which is in a couple of weeks). I have been having trouble with the tablet for a while, it didn't like to two changes in operating systems I have had in the last few years and really didn't seem to compatible with Windows 7, which we upgraded to at the beginning of the year.
So I started to have a look at what was out there to replace my graphics tablet, and I set my heart on the Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet. Wacom was the brand of my old tablet and I was very happy with it. Yesterday we went to a few shops to see who had the best price and my WH bought it for me! HeHeHeHe!
This tablet has both pen & touch capabilities. Meaning that it can work just like a really big version of the touch pad you have on laptops. Except that with a certain number of fingers and motions you can scroll, rotate and zoom (still getting the hang of that).
So far I have found it great for browsing my library of photos and it makes internet surfing interesting. Can't wait to really get into the photo editing with the pen, which is much easier to use than my old tablet, you can even write with it and the writing actually looks like your own hand writing (again something I struggled with with my last tablet).
I am so in love with this tablet! I think I'll go and continue playing.
