Wacom Intuos Small Bluetooth Graphics Drawing Tablet $50 (was $100)
Wacom is the 400-pound gorilla in the drawing tablet space. This is one of its most basic models, but it offers pretty much everything a photo editor or illustrator needs for making precise selections and drawings. The 8.3 x 5.7-inch tablet connects to a computer via Bluetooth or via an optional USB cable.
The stylus recognizes up to 4,096 levels of pressure, so you can get super-accurate and ink-like lines while you’re drawing. A pair of buttons on the stylus, as well as four buttons on the pad itself, allow for quick access to common functions. Just about every creative app you could want to use will work natively with this input, and it weighs just half a pound, so it’s easy to lug around.
Even if you’re not sure whether you like editing with pen input or not, you can’t beat the $50 price tag.
If you’re looking for another way to increase you’re editing speed and you don’t need pen-like accuracy, you can also check out these deals on Loupedeck editing consoles. They’re loaded with buttons (and sometimes a screen) to help automate and accelerate common actions during the editing process.
