Pretty much everybody learns how to edit photos using a mouse, but as a photographer becomes more advanced, they will often switch to using a pen tablet to work on their images. If you have not yet made the switch, this helpful video will show you seven reasons why you might want to consider picking up a tablet for your editing work.
Coming to you from Unmesh Dinda from PiXimperfect, this great video discusses seven reasons why a pen tablet can often be superior to a mouse for editing images. It can certainly take a bit of practice to get used to a Wacom Tablet, but most photographers swear they will never return to a mouse once they have put in the time to learn how it works and develop the technique to use it effectively. Besides being a more natural physical motion than using a mouse, a pen tablets offers a range of advantages. For me, the most significant is pressure sensitivity. By linking different Photoshop settings to how hard you press the pen to the tablet surface, you can easily and efficiently vary things like brush flow, making it far simpler to take precise control of techniques like dodging and burning. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Dinda.
