Thankfully there are several entry-level tablets like the Veikk VK1060 that offer some professional-level features without breaking the bank.

M1 iPad Pro Review: More Powerful, More Functional, Still Frustrating

The last few generations of iPad Pro were already powerful enough for serious photo editing, but the benefits of such a small and versatile device have never quite outweighed the cons of a tablet-based workflow. The 2021 iPad Pro -- with its M1 SOC, up to 16GB of RAM, Thunderbolt support, and mind-blowing miniLED display -- makes the best case yet for ditching your laptop. But even with all this power under the hood, it’s clear the iPad is still an accessory, not a laptop replacement.

Photo Editing Tablet Comparison: Is Wacom Still Worth It?

Ask any retoucher what one item they couldn't live without, and they will probably point to their photo editing tablet. Swapping your mouse for a pen tablet can make a huge difference for your workflow, but is it really worth spending $380 on the Wacom Intuos Pro that everyone seems to be using? Are there any affordable alternatives? I'm glad you asked!

Photoshop on iPad Has Arrived

Adobe just launched Photoshop on iPad. After murmurings and a confirmation last year that the company would be bringing "full Photoshop" to the iPad, version 1.0 of the brand new app finally launched to the public today.

I Bought the New iPad Pro So You Don’t Have To

I’m no stranger to the iPad. In fact, it once caused me not to get a job at an Apple store shortly after college. I was asked in an interview, “What do you think of the new iPad,” and I answered honestly (mistake number one in a job interview I would learn).

The Surface Beast: Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 is a MacBook Pro Killer

Over the last year I have been slowly migrating from Apple to Windows, and to be honest breaking out of the walled gardens that I lived within (some known, some unknown) has not been easy, but it has been freeing.
