    Considering Purchase of Wacom Cintiq 27 HD Touch - Questions about Touch Functionality in Photoshop & Lightroom

    rkstuetz

      I am considering the purchase of a Wacom Cintiq 27 HD Touch monitor. I have a few questions relative to two Adobe programs and their use of "touch" functionality - Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5.7 running on Windows 7.

       

      1. Have problems related to touch functionality in Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5 been resolved that you see on this and Wacom's forums from a year ago?

      2. If so, is there enough value gained via touch functionality in Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5 to warrant the $500 difference in price between the Cintiq 27 HD vs HD Touch? (I realize that this is a subjective question based on the abundance of one's cash.)

      3. I plan to stay with CS6 as long as possible to avoid a monthly subscription, BUT I do wonder if purchasing the HD Touch may provide additional touch functionality in future versions of these products that are not currently there. (So this is a pie in the sky kind of question.)

       

      Thanks!
