QA1>What is the main function of graphic tablets?

Nowadays, for every business, from traditional business to startup business, employers prefer to hire designers who can edit photos or design artworks with computer software. However, in the digital generation, it’s almost impossible to adopt the traditional method- that is, drawing on papers and scan. This way is not only inefficient but also source-wasting. Therefore, with the invention of graphic tablets, people can use graphic tablets to connect to computers and draw on them, which is more convenient and faster than the traditional way. It also fosters the graphic creation market, such as LINE stickers, webcomic platform, etc. 


QA2>How many kinds are there of graphic tablets?

(1) Pen Digitizer
Many people can’t distinguish pen tablets from graphic tablets. In fact, pen tablets can be regarded as “e-notebook”. They are often used in meetings, teaching, or discussing team skills. The price of pen tablets is usually under a thousand dollars. However, most of the pen tablets can’t connect to computer drawing software. They can only upload files to computers. Also, the pens aren't equipped with pressure sensitivity function, such as the Xiaomi pen tablet. On the other hand, some of the pen tablets from well-known brands can connect to computers to draw artworks.

(2) Graphic Tablet:
Graphic tablets can connect to drawing software, such as PS, AI, etc, which makes it easy for designers to design their artworks instead of using a computer mouse. Also, graphic pens provide shortcut keys. This helps users to draw conveniently and efficiently. Moreover, designers can have a more realistic drawing experience with graphic tablets.

(3) Monitor Graphic Tablet 
This kind of graphic tablet can connect to computer drawing software. Unlike general graphic tablets, it provides better efficacy. Equipped with an LCD screen, it can display drawing software on the screen. Therefore, users can operate in a direct, convenient, and efficient way.

(4) Tablet PC
Similar to monitor graphic tablets, it provides a convenient and direct way for users to operate. However, it can’t connect to digital illustration software. It can only connect to software that is installed on the tablet, then upload the file to the computer. This is not that convenient because of the incompatible issues on different systems. On the other hand, the advantage of tablets is they are easy to carry. It’s not necessary to connect to a computer. As for IPad made by Apple, they design Apple pencil with pressure sense, which is popular among Apple users. However, the price is very high.


QA3> What are the functions of graphic tablets?
Generally speaking, there are five differences between graphic tablets.

(1)     Resolution
Just like TVs, the higher the resolution is, the more detailed the picture and the line is. In other words, high resolution can reduce image aliasing and can provide better pen sensitivity.
The resolution level of graphic tablets:-5080 LPI > I4000 LPI > 3048 LPI > 2540 LPI

(2) Pen Pressure Sensitivity
The higher level of pressure sensitivity, the more detailed pen strokes would be. That is to say, the pressure sensitivity system of graphic tablets would affect the brightness, thickness, and color of the line. What’s more, graphic tablets with better pressure sensitivity would not be inferior to hand drawing!
The level of pen pressure sensitivity: -8192 Level> 4096 Level > 2048 Level 

(3) Functions
Basically, better graphic tablets provide many functions, such as shortcut keys.



Some graphic tablets are equipped with bottoms and turntable wheel control. Users can set many functions they need, such as open, return, etc. They can also set more functions that can replace a mouse, such as zoom in/out. Without these functions, graphic tablets need a mouse to operate, which is convenient and time-consuming. 

(4) Mapping Area
Graphic tablets vary from size to size. Users can pick up your ideal graphic tablets based on your working environment. If the graphic tablet you choose is not big enough, there would be lots of limitations. On the other hand, although bigger size can be more convenient for designers to draw bigger artwork, the price would rise because of the size. This depends on users’ consideration. 

(5) Pen Tablet Compatibility
Notice that a graphic tablet is a tool that needs to connect with computers. It’s necessary to install the driver to make graphic tablets workable. Therefore, before buying your ideal graphic tablet, it’s important to check if the graphic tablet is compatible with your software, or you’ll need to find another one.
Luckily, most of the graphic tablets on the market are compatible with common software, users shouldn’t be worried about it. To prevent this from happening, it’s suggested that users should check thoroughly before buying or buy graphic tablets of well-known brands. Don’t buy graphic tablets of unknown brands.
