    For photo editing all yu need is the simpler tablet that senses location and pressure. But for freehand drawing and painting tilt ending gives you more control. The basic system keeps the effective brush angle at90 degrees so the contact is a circle but with tilt you can make the circle into something longer.

    It depends if you will be doing much freehand drawing or mostly photography.

    The Pen and Touch is also finger sensitive, so you can use gestures. If you get the medium one, you have a large trackpad.

    I use the Bamboo pen & touch for photo retouching. It's fantastic. Most people will never need anything more. The exception might be professional illustrators who spend all day, every day drawing.

    If you're going to be using it for mostly photography then I'd save your money & get the pen & touch. It still has fantastic sensitivity if you choose to use it (personally I turn it off - I'm a photographer, not an illustrator).

    As for size - get the small one. Anything bigger is fairly pointless for retouching. Again, I think the larger sizes are aimed more at illustrators & graphic artists.

    Hope that helps.
