GIMP for Tablet??
I know this has been asked before but I searched the forums and couldn't find it, can I use the normal GIMP software on a Tablet PC??
I'm getting one tomorrow and would like to be able to create tags and tagger kits without my desktop. Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks!!

RE: GIMP for Tablet??
I am a new member and a novice GIMP user on my desktop computer.

I currently use a WACOM Bamboo for input, but would like to be able to input directly on my image. Since I am unable to afford a Cintiq (?), can I use a multitouchscreen computer monitor like one of the Planar models as a substitute.

I am a cartoonist, so I am not going to do any "fine art" with the GIMP, but it would be much easier for me to draw directly onto the screen than drawing a cartoon on paper, scanning it, and then finishing up my cartoon on the computer using GIMP.

Any advice would be useful as I hope to get the Planar touchscreen within a few days.

Android, only one at the moment and the project has been abandoned.
see: http://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-use...or-android

For the last month or so, the possessor of an Asus TF101 transformer (with docking station, refurbed, upgraded, heavily discounted). That android gimp does not work here, some problem with VPN.

Great little tool for un-docking, take to the pub, have a beer, do a little gentle internet browsing, but not much else. The available graphics tools on google store - very lame.

I would say a better bet is a netbook running a regular linux except that Acer & Asus have announced 'no more netbooks' A great shame.
