If you work (and play) in Photoshop or Lightroom, and burn and dodge, and selectively adjust specific areas of an image, the Wacom Pen Tablet is the way to go - because you can use the pressure-sensitive Pen like an artist uses a paintbrush and the Tablet like a canvas. That's how I enhanced the above image, which I took during a workshop in Venice, Italy.
What's cool about the Wacom Pen Tablet is that you can customize the controls - like an artist mixes paints. But there's more: you can actually use your fingers on the tablet for additional creative control (including zoom, pan and tilt). Note: the ghost image of a painting that you may see in the above image is an image I'm working on for a project.
As I mentioned, I have the Wacom Intuos5 Small Pen Tablet. For at-home, all-the-time use, check out the Large model.
Here's another image that I enhanced with the help of my Wacom Pen Tablet. Try signing your name on an image with a mouse. :-)
