Digital Camera World Verdict

The Wacom Intuos Pro Medium is perfect for streamlining your editing workflow or creating beautiful illustrations in Photoshop or Illustrator. The intuitive design lends itself to those who are usually used to working on paper and a number of customizable buttons enable you to set it up to work for you. It's small enough to carry around with you yet provides a big enough surface area for intricate retouching and design work. Now that I've used a tablet for editing, I won't be going back to a trackpad or mouse.

The Wacom Intuos Pro Medium tablet is a  true game-changer when it comes to photo editing. As well as being a useful tool for graphic design and illustration, it makes retouching images a lot more efficient so you can get through them faster. The extremely responsive Pro Pen 2 feels like an extension of your hand (once you get to grips with using it) and the texture feel of the nib on the tablet's surface has just the perfect amount of glide.
