    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.

    In a false sense of reality...My Mind!
    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.
