Does Huion 420 drawing tablet works in paint.net?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to buy an cheap drawing tablet for now (low budget lol) since I'm really struggling with my mouse to do Pixel Portraits. But before that I need to know whether it works or not bc it will be useless if I bought it and it didn't work with paint.net

Hello @euska and welcome to the forum :)


Most tablets work with paint.net, but there is no 'pressure sensitivity' in paint.net, yet.

From the information on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Huion-Graphics-Drawing-Tablet-Board/dp/B00TB0TTAC/ 


  • Compatible with Corel Painter, CorelDraw, Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Macromedia Flash, Comic Studio, SAI,Paint tool sai, Infinite Stratos, 3D MAX, Autodesk MAYA, Pixologic ZBrush and other major graphics applications.
  • Pen scrolling – You can scroll documents and Web pages by pressing the middle button of the digital pen over the tablet’s working area. (Compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Win7/8/10 and Mac OS 10.8.0 or above. )

... I'm betting it'll work just fine. In the worst case it will be emulated as a mouse, but it will probably show up as a "pen" device. Only difference will be the smoothness of the input, as for now there is still not pressure sensitivity support in the app. In either case it will work fine for drawing. From reading the reviews there is just a driver that you'll need to install, which is pretty standard.
