A graphic tablet (also known as a pen tablet, drawing tablet or digitizer) is a hardware input device like a mouse. Graphics tablets have a hard plastic, touch-sensitive drawing surface that transfers stylus or mouse movements to a monitor. The position of the stylus or mouse directly correlates to the position of the cursor on the monitor. The layout and mapping between the tablet and your monitor(s) should be arranged to make it more natural to use. It takes a while to get used to drawing on the tablet surface, but once you get over the learning curve, it’s as natural as using a pen or pencil on paper.
