Mouse or tablet?
What do you preffer, mouse or tablet?

I use a mouse, i really like working with a mouse, and i would never buy a tablet.
A mouse is good enough for me, and it asks more skill. Wink

What do you think?

Oh and my english isn't very good, so if you see any mistakes, please tell me Smile

RE: Mouse or tablet?
I've only used a mouse, but a tablet would help with painting, but I just like my mouse better. We'll see if my opinion changes when I get a tablet

RE: Mouse or tablet?
Hey, I just few days ago ordered a tablet and there is this question. Smile

When I was younger I liked to draw, so I thought it's a great idea to get one. My choice was Wacom's Bamboo Fun entry level tablet.

I have been using Photoshop since 1995. I have been using and teaching
Gimp for six months. I like the price for young people. Teach photoshop also. Start both at 10 years of age. When I teach both I use only a mouse. It is fine for graphics work and people do great work with it. I do great work with it. But you will not find one professional graphics person working 8-12 hours per day 5-7 days a week using a mouse. This answer has nothing to do with how good an artist you are.

Personally, I prefer my Bamboo Pen tablet :>
I used to be a mouse drawer, but when I drew with it I felt like I was trying to draw by sliding a bar of soap all over my desk. I couldn't even make a circle. I really love my tablet, and I highly promote tablets.

I think that a mouse is a lot easier to use than a tablet, it allows you to navigate without accidentally clicking on something you didn't want to open.

I have a Genius Tablet sitting in a drawer here seldom use it. But it comes in handy for making a sketch for background use. The mouse is used over 99% of the time. I suppose I should use my tablet more often.

Trackball for me! Woohoo! Seriously tho.. my wife is a real world, paints and canvas person who is also a crazy aweome graphic designer in "that other" software and she does things with a tablet that are simply amazing. She really can "paint" with it. I think at that level, you have to have the tools to do it well and efficiently.

LMAO, I can relate to that metaphor, it just makes sense!

I was all mouse until I tried a tablet. Now, mouse for general photo edits and tablet for more precise edits/drawing & painting.

If i need to make custom text lettering, a tablet is the way to go.
