    Do wacom tablets have photo editing software with them? I like to draw onmy machine, and I think a tablet would be great for stuff I do. I am learning how to draw flash animations, and it is hard as **** to draw ith the Mouse. I also would like to edit some of my photos I have.


    Thankyou, your help is appreiciated.:)

    In my experience, no software is included, although some retailers may offer bundles. Perusing the Wacom website does not indicate any software that ships with the tablets.

    Now the Graphire, what I was looking for includes PhotoShop elements. Unfortunately, it might not include a mac version.:(

    Yes, Graphires still include Mac versions of both PS Elements and Painter Essentials.

    (Now Adobe's) Macromedia Flash (as in not Macromedia Flash Player) fully supports Wacom tablets.

    Yes the software comes with them as I'm waiting for my 9x12 to get here (back-order because of updated software). As far as the Flash drawing goes, yes it's easy as that's what I do with a Wacom. Just take the time to program/setup your pen once you get it using Flash or it will be a mess from hell. The Intuos3 has great shortcut keys on the Tablet itself that you won't be able to due without IMO.
