I've used graphics tablets since the early '80s, beginning with
Summagraphics and now Wacom. They're far more accurate than a mouse for
serious editing such as selecting areas, retouching, etc. If all one is
doing is resizing, cropping, or applying general attributes to the whole
image (contrast, color adjustments, etc.), they may be of little benefit.
