Right off the bat, know this:
  1. All of my product pages are meant to reflect my own personal experience with my gear. I use everything I’ve listed!  I’ve chosen each piece based upon how they float my boat and make my work, art, travel, comfort and mobility possible. As such, my comments are completely my own opinion. So don’t cry if I’m not objectively droning about this feature vs. that feature and why point-decimal-some-number is going to make a difference in your life. It probably won’t anyway and there are plenty of people who WILL share that data with you. You might enjoy their reviews. Fair warning. What I WILL share is my thought process in choosing my gear, what it does for me, what I love about it… and if there’s something not love, I’ll share that too.
  2. The links I provide to check prices and purchase on Amazon are affiliate links. What that means is that should you choose to buy said gear, I’ll receive a bit ‘o change from that sale. It doesn’t cost you any more. You’re NOT under any obligation to purchase whatsoever. Nada. None. I just like to be all transparent about stuff like that. Now let’s get on with the show…

For my particular photo post-processing, a Wacom is a must. You can get fancy with different pen tips, pressure levels, custom settings and all… but I’m pretty basic with it.

I simply can’t get granular with my work on a touchpad – and a mouse makes my wrist hurt after awhile. Wacoms work for me both ergonomically and artistically. I’ve actually got 2 of them… a small one (for travel) and a medium size. Honestly, the small one is plenty big enough for me. I’ll probably go with that size when I upgrade one day.

I honestly don’t remember life before Wacom… it lets me work with layers, make tweaks and adjustments on my photos like I was using a paintbrush. It’s a must-have in my world!
