O boy a new toy in the house and it isn’t even Christmas yet! Although it is starting to feel that way. I just got the Wacom Intuos 4 Medium Tablet which rocks compared to my Intuos 3 Tablet. When i was at Bozeman a couple weeks ago, Joe Sliger of Wacom saw my Intuos 3, he said with a stunned look and pointed finger, “what is that!?” “No, No, Bad.” Didn’t bother me it was a simple tablet for the road. He let me play with a Intuos 4 for the week and boy do i like it! I didn’t have nearly enough time to play with it then, so Joe and Wacom were generous enough to provide me with one. I thank you all for doing that.
These things are so cool. They are great for travel, moving around the house, and storage. They rock when traveling because they are light, flat, and fast. They make processing images so much faster than using a mouse, especially with sensitive areas. For instance, working with static airplanes early in the morning and there is a pesky fence or hanger in the background cutting right through the wing and the only way to deal with it is with content aware, that’s when the precision of the pen is awesome. It just doesn’t come out as clean with a mouse.
There is so much more to explore with this device and i can’t wait to start! I know I’ll be visiting the Wacom site for more help from their videos trying to make the tablet as customized to my needs as i can make it. A great project for these snowy winter days! Definitely more to come, thanks again guys!!
