My friend is a Skin specialist (Tricologist) and she has a computer with WinXP in her office. She asked me if I can recommend a hardware which would enable her to write on a graphics tablet that would appear on the screen. Her requirement is thus:

There is a prescription paper, a sheet of paper (A4 size) which has a letter head (With the title of the Clinic, Doctor's name etc). The exact image of the paper is available on the Computer. She takes the pictures of the patient's head with a camera and pastes the photo over the sheet of paper. So the top half of the prescription paper will have the photo of the patient's head. In the second half, she wants to write the medication required. I have heard of Bamboo graphics tablet and I saw video in Youtube. But I am not sure if it would be the right solution for her. Can anyone please advise me on this?

The software matters a bit more. Even a mouse works if the right software is used. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 16 '12 at 4:05
    
Ah no, she is very clear that she wants to use a tablet –  thandasoru Dec 16 '12 at 4:06
    
My comment still stands. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 16 '12 at 4:07
    
Wait, Bamboo tablet does not come with a software for the computer which will record the pen strokes? If so, what software do you recommend as the best? –  thandasoru Dec 16 '12 at 4:08
    
A digitizer is an input device. It is up to software to interpret the input. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 16 '12 at 4:09
