Wacom Intuos Pro tablet
Why try to make precise movements with a mouse shaped like a bar of soap when you can use a pen?
The Wacom Intuos Pro tablet — I use the medium-sized version — has revolutionized my photoediting, and for precision tasks I can't imagine going back to a mouse or trackpad. I even take the Intuos Pro with me on the road.
The tablet also features a raft of buttons that I can designate to take over commonly used tasks in Photoshop, and the surface is also touch-capable, which adds a new dimension to using the tablet.
It's so handy being able to beam content — work and play — from my iPhone or iPad onto a TV, that I invested in one for each TV at home and in the office. This way, rather than all crowd around a small screen, we can look at the content on a big screen.
Quality input devices
I used to think that it didn't matter what keyboard and mouse I used. I'd struggle with some cheap peripherals because I thought they were all the same … until, many moons ago, I used a quality set-up. I then decided that I needed quality peripherals, and I've never looked back.
