Any Wacom Tablet Users?
Been looking at the Intuos Pro Medium and wanted to check it’s the right one for me. I illustrate in Adobe Illustrator but have always used a mouse (a lot of tracing scanned drawings etc) but fancy something with a bit more flexibility and – hopefully – to speed things up a bit.
Any advice greatly appreciated…Posted 4 years agothepuristSubscriber
Great bits of kit, been using an Intuos A4 tablet for an age. My main advice would be not to go too large – mine takes up a fair bit of space on the desk and TBH a lot of the time I have it set to use an A5ish area rather than the full tablet. Once taught some clients who’d spanked a load of money on a3 tabs and they were unwieldy and unnecessary for their usage.Posted 4 years agoMilkieMember
Do it. I bought one for Photoshop and cannot believe how much quicker and accurate it is! I think it took me half an hour to get used to it and be better than a mouse.

I have the small one and its just the right size, a friend has the A4 and cannot get used to it due to the big movements needed.spicerMember
Can’t comment on the intuos, but I got the (larger) bamboo pen and touch to use with my laptop for product design sketching. I haven’t used a smaller one, but I’m pretty happy with the size of it. Works well. I soon found I wanted something where I could draw directly onto the screen though… so started looking at Cintiqs.
Instead of getting a Cintiq I got a samsung SLATE 7 tablet pc (it uses a wacom digitizer in the screen) used on ebay for about £300. So if you really want a cintiq but don’t want to spend 1k, have a look at these. And now it means I have a full Windows 8 tablet PC that I can carry around too.
It doesn’t support as much pressure sensitivity as a full cintiq, but there is still plenty- Photoshop doesn’t even support what the cintiqs are capable of.
You might not be interested in any of that, but thought I’d suggest it in case!Posted 4 years ago
