To whom it may concern,

I believe I have come up with a good original idea that could be extremely beneficial for you at Adobe Photoshop. My idea is a type of tablet or screen that can be plugged into your USB port. Once plugged in and photoshop is turned on, this tablet could be used to edit photos with touch screen technology using a plastic pen. You could select a photo or photos you want to edit form your computer, and in a new fashion instead of using your mouse to edit them, they will appear on the touch screen tablet next to your computer where you can edit the photo in anyway you like using the pen and touch screen. You would be able to use any of the normal photoshop tools you like on the pad, or maybe just more basic ones and have the advanced editing tools remain only on the computer. Touch screen technology is booming and I know many people who would love to have an almost drawing aspect to photoshop where you can edit with a pencil instead of a mouse. I imagine this device to be slightly smaller than the iPad and to use pressure touch technology instead of Apple's heat recognition technology. This will encourage more photoshop users, make a brand new unheard of product on the maket, and become and additional piece of hardware which could be sold at a relatively high price. Please let me know of any feedback you have,

Chris, if it is not a joke, have you heard of graphic tablets like wacom's? Go to wacom.com, there are tablets for all budgets. (Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with Wacom, it is just the brand I use.)

Yes I just heard they did this type of product, that is essentially exactly what I am referring to. I just believe with Adobe's high place in the market they could make a Photoshop specific tablet that people would buy, even though it's not the most original idea.
