Go With a Trackball for Digital Photo Editing
After working with a mouse for a long time for my photo editing, I started to develop some strain in my little finger. I was using that finger to help stabilize the movements. This year I switched to a Logitech trackball and it seems to be working out much better. Here is what I use: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/trackballs/devices/wireless-trackball-m570. You can develop hand strain with a trackball too if you overdo it, but I think this trackball is better than a mouse for photo editing. I also frequently make use of a Wacom tablet/stylus (similar to this: http://www.Wacom.com/en/Products/Intuos/Intuos4Medium.aspx), which has the additional benefit of lessening hand strain by using the hand in a different way from a trackball or mouse.
