Can You Really Ditch Your Mouse?

A long time ago. I made the effort to try to ditch my Mouse for a Wacom Bamboo Tablet: http://bit.ly/YO5auw 


Well today I am happy to announce that I have made the final plunge and my mouse is no longer on my desk. I gave up for a few months and went back to the mouse, but that was because I didn’t have my tablet configured correctly. I tried to have it function in the same way as a mouse and not as a tablet. I decided to revisit it and dive in the configuration and discovered the correct way to set it up and it works wonderfully. I use it all the time for #LightRoom and #Photoshop and now I use it full time for everything else.

Don’t get me wrong… It is a HUGE learning curve to use a tablet for non retouching and photo-editing tasks, but once you accomplish that it is a great tool to add to your technology toolkit.

Now I see why all the other #photographers use #tablets for #photography and everything else.

Here’s my desk now.. (Mouse removed… lol)
