I was looking to purchase a Wacom graphic tablet and sudenly thought what if I can use my new Samsung A6 tablet insted?
Has anyone managed to do this and if so how please.
If I do decide to go with a dedicated graphic tablet which one would you recommend under £100
Sorry forgot to say I am using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020
Can anyone help with this??
I tried to look it up but the Samsung site is stalling too long for my patience, but as far as I know a Samsung A6 tablet runs on Android. Photoshop Elements was designed for Windows. So... no, you can't run that on your tablet. There is a smaller Photoshop lite version available in the Google playstore, that should be doable, but anything beyond that won't work.
Simply put: if it's not available in the Google store then it won't run on your tablet. *
* This is technically not 100% true because you can "side-load" individual Android apps, but that's beyond the scope of this post; it also doesn't change anything regarding my comment.
As for using your Galaxy A6 tablet as a graphics tablet (instead of a Wacom or similar) in conjunction with running PSE 2020 on Windows, yes, it's possible but it's really an unsatisfactory hack. OK if you're a beginner or perhaps in an emergency.
With that option, you don't get any pressure sensitiviy which is one of the main features of Wacom etc. It's really a workaround in the absence of a real graphics tablet. It requires Java and a Wifi drawing app for the A6 tablet

That would be my preferred option. For cheap, capable drawing tablets, try the Huion range.
Virtual Tablet works and By the way The Samsung A6 Stlus that comes with it has over 4000 levels of pressure sensitivity.
Yes, Virtual Tablet works.
Thanks for the correction about the Samsung A6 stylus pressure sensitivity.
