  • drawing on a touchscreen monitor?


    (hope this is posted to the right forum spot)

    I am a long time web developer but weak in graphics, and looking to improve my skills.

    I have tried a tablet in the past but found it impossible to follow lines on the screen while drawing on the tablet.

    The wacom cintiq sounds like the right item, but the price tag is waaay high, so I am wondering if it is a reasonable option to get a cheaper touchscreen monitor, maybe $2-300, and drawing directly on that in photoshop.

    If this is an ok idea, I also have another tech issue, currently using quad monitors with a matrox quad head, and would need to put another pci display card. I think windows 7 would handle that ok, but looking ahead to possible gotcha's...

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Absolutely. There is nothing worse than explaining the color gamut to clients who have fallen in love with the vibrant RGB colors that turn to mud in CMYK. Nothing.

    There are many wacom tablet owners right now that are not working with upgrades. Google and see if yours is one that doesn't have an update. I'm on mac, and I have heard that the Bamboo will not work...

    I thought Adobe bought out the forum to silence all the badmouthing of their brand I've been doing lately.
