I am going to buy the INTUOS 5 but I am still unsure about which size to get, I would be using it with a 13″ Macbook Pro Early and so from your info graphic above, am I right in assuming that the small size would be the most appropriate? I’ve tried all the free software, and the Adobe Creative Cloud is out of my budget. Will visit this blog often in the future. Our Illustrator sometimes worked directly on the vector drawing, bypassing the pencil sketch altogether. The pen works just fine even without directly touching the tablet surface.

Having a tablet would free you from scanning those sketches and it’s also a more ergonomic device than a mouse.

The tablet size relates to the display area, so larger displays require larger drawing areas and better resolution the ability to differentiate more pointsor else the cursor would feel less precise and jumpy.

Chris, the tilt sensitivity helps to make brush strokes more natural when you’re trying to simulate natural media in bitmap programs, like Photoshop and Corel Painter. One thing I think would help me would be a heavier pen weight wise.

I may want to add a second display in the future. An analog implementation modulates the phase angle of the resonant frequency, while a digital method is communicated to a modulator that distributes the information digitally. Wacom introduced two new tablet computers in And wacoms website is pure consumer bullshitting.


For people who want to add a touch of personality to their digital life. Keep in mind that Wacom drivers play well with mice and both devices do not interfere with each other. I’m not sure what size monitors we had, they weren’t huge Sounds like the company made an improvement, and it helps to have a light touch.

Wacom is a Japanese portmanteau: In Photoshop, for example, you can assign the pen tilt to various brush dynamics: Hi Fabio, I intos fifth grade online and I use dual screens. I did not buy an Intuos because I found it very expensive for the type of usage I will give to it. I find the larger area is more comfortable to use than inyuos small Intuos Pro and it has plenty of resolution to handle larger displays that your 13 inch laptop.

The Wacom website says 9. It probably explains why I haven’t noticed the difference in going to a larger effective screen–I’m probably just zooming in more to compensate.

The medium sized Intuos5 is the most versatile model, even though the small one has plenty of resolution to work well with your screen size. If your display has less than px on its longest size, the small Intuos CTH model will work very well.

I wouldn’t recommend the CHTwhich is the small regular Intuos. Does Wacom make a heavier pen that I could purchase? I think the large model is too big to be used on the side of the keyboard without having to bend too much to the side, while working with it.

I don’t know much about tablets but I it looks like they may be the answer for a project I’m working on. If so which model would do this sort of task? I hope to ink directly on the PC to save mistakes on really good pencil work and not have to worry about erasing lines. The higher resolution really shows in this kind of application and the pen tilt can be mapped to the brush dynamics, creating more natural results.


Also, before opting for the large model, I suggest you to jntuos a piece of paper in the same size and try it on your desk. inttuos

In any case, a Wacom tablet is my preferred input device and I spend a lot of time using it in Illustrator. On the pen displays front, sometimes touch input gets in the way of your work and can interfere with the pen, even with the excellent palm rejection on newer Wacom models.

In those cases, desktop computers offer much better bang for the buck and workflow integration options.

I used to own a bamboo pen, and I found the size to be more than adequate. The scale is going to be a problem, though. It takes a long time to erase freehand vintiq in Illustrator though It’s also white and blue! Im torn on either getting the wacom bamboo capture or create?
