One of first things that I like to suggest to students in workshops, and in my online courses is to use a Wacom pen tablet for photo editing. It makes a world of difference with precision, and makes it much easier on your wrist and hand. It's an elegant solution to photo editing compared to using a mouse, and is designed to work with Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements and other applications. I use the Intuos5 touch medium, which works out perfect for photography and creativity. My friends at Hunts Photo & Video have specials on Wacom products until January 15, click here to view the Wacom tools and savings. Check out the new Insivity creative site for inspiration and ideas too!
