I use the Wacom tablet and at first it would be kinda weird to use it @[email protected] (for me i guess) I use Inkscape (like Adobe Illustrator but free) for doing graphic arts/vector images and then GIMP,yeah like adobe photoshop ( but I still feel more comfy w/ Photoshop though)

I just got a tablet fer free when upgrading my phone & durn if I know what to do with it! Seems to be just a social media thing. Or for sales, carrying around pics to show off.
I tried Gimp once & was impressed. That from an old PS guy.

I had a Wacom Bamboo Create and loved it. Something went wrong internally and everyone at Wacom told me it was out of date and parts are now scarce. Been looking to replace but they are getting hard to find and I'm not sure if they are compatible with windows 7, 8 and 10. 10 is what I have now. I looked in to the next step up table, the Intous, at $300 plus... honestly for me, that's a hard pill to swallow so I've been using a mouse and I'm not sure if they are compatible with windows 10 which is what I have now. I'm not sure what operating system you are running but compatibility issues are a real concern now day's and every time Wacom has a compatibility issue they just try to sell us a new tablet.
Now I've done some research and there is another tablet that is trying to break into the market called Huion. They are a third of the price and I've been doing research and the pros out there say that the Huion drawing tables rival anything Wacon has. One pro said that Wacom has really gone unchallenged for so long that they haven't even tried to make any real upgrades to their product and that the only real upgrade they made to the Intuos is the price. Now I don't think that Huion has anything like the Wacom Cintiq but at $3000 who the heck can afford that. Not I.
Now I looked on the Huion web sight and saw they are giving away the drivers to make their product compatible with windows 10. Which is the system I am now supporting. Honestly I haven't tried this product yet but I think I might. If I do I will post a critique on what I think. For me personally at $40-$60 Huion might be worth a try.

Just as an update Huion does have a version of the Wocom Cintiq and it is a third of the price also.

I don't know now I'm seeing some wacom Intuos4s pros at some pretty good deals on Ebay right now. Still I'm a sucker for inexpensive off brands of anything. Guitars, drums, software, and now these drawing tablets. My firm belief is that it's not the tools that make the artist but the artist that makes the tools.

True to an extent Eddie.... but differences in sensitivity, touch, precision, etc make the world of difference in a drawing tablet.

All I want is a tablet that will let me upload art and remove the background. Of course it would be fun to do other stuff too.
@Bushcraftonfire can u put Gimp on a desktop?
