I'm not sure how many of you use art tablets, but I want to know if I can do something specific with one. If so, I will start saving my pennies.
Because I upload some of my art to my online stores, I want to be able to make the background transparent. I don't have photoshop, and there are a couple of online editors that do it, but the results are messy. Maybe with a stylus, it would be a little cleaner.
I don't know about art tablets but tablets in general have really come down in price. We just got 4 for the grandkids at only $49 each and they have 8G of active memory. What is different between an Art Tablet and a regular tablet? On a regular tablet you can download art programs.
I know they plug directly into your laptop/ipad and I think they are only meant for graphic art type stuff. I looked at a couple on Amazon, but I just don't know if they will do what I want done.
I think a couple of people on the forum use them, so I hope one of them will know.
As a standalone graphics tablet (Android) I would get a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 or 12.1
If you are looking for a graphics tablet to use with your computer.. then I would get a Wacom Bamboo (what I use). It's inexpensive.. but leaps ahead of the competition (almost every professional tablet user uses Wacom.)
If you are using the Bamboo... use the program GIMP. It's free (open source).. and as good as Photoshop
