I bought a wacom intuos 3 graphics tablet and started doing a lot of digital painting. I soon realised that there just isn't enough space on my pathetic 17" monitor to, for example, have all the toolbars I need open in photoshop along with my painting and possibly a couple of reference pictures.

So, I thought I'd get a larger monitor. But then I realised that monitors above 19" don't seem to exist non-widescreen.

So then I had a problem. If I get a widescreen, I loose a section off the bottom of my tablet.

SO,

I thought about perhaps getting duel screens... and using one for reference pics and the like and one to paint. But, I can't seem to find out anywhere how a tablet responds to duel screen. Ideally, I'd want to set it to only operate on one, whilst I used a normal mouse to interact between the two.

Can someone confirm that it's possible to do this or make a better suggestion. Perhaps someone knows where I can get a non-widescreen monitor above 19"... I used to have a 30" non widescreen, but that broke. Would love to have another one if only they made them. Ihatewidescreen.

Thanks in advance.

Okay I've had the tablet question answered on another site. You can restrict it to only one monitor on a duel setup.

Still like to know about uk retailers that sell 19"+ standard monitors, though.

You can get two 19'' widescreens and turn them 90 degrees :thumbsup:
