I think once you do you will never go back to drawing with a mouse. Mine's the Intous 6x8. I like the size and the degrees of sensitivity. Can't speak for the Intous 2.

Don't forget to let us know how it goes when you get it. We love hearing about new toys.

I called Wacom and asked what the main difference was between the old and the new, the pen in the main difference, it has a different design. The sensitivity and speed are the same in both models. I was also told that there was some new technology in the Intous2 model. I asked if it made a difference in the performance and was told "No, not any difference" "Just the pen design and feel".

Hope this helps!!

I love my 9X12

Great, now I don't feel like I'm missing anything much with the Intous 2. Thanks, I was wondering what the difference was.

Mr

I got my Intous2 6x8 for Christmas. It took about two hours of working with the pen tool. Now I find myself reaching for the mouse less and less. It certainly has made my retouching efforts smoother and less "studied."

I also find the 2d mouse to be very acceptable. I leave the mouse to the far side of the tablet while I'm working with the pen. I can lay the pen down and start using the mouse without having to look for it.

Since it must be used on the tablet, I can see why some do not care for it. But I do think the mouse would be more difficult to use on a 4x5 tablet.

No problems at all on the setup and installation. I consider it the best three hundred dollars I spent in December. That and buying a second hard drive that I've partitioned for photoshop use.

Regards,

Stephen

Hey Stephen
Welcome to Retouch Pro and congrats on your new toy. I have the Intous 6x8 and I love the size. Don't have the mouse but I can see where using it on anything smaller than 6x8 would be hard to do. It sure makes things alot easier in the retouching doesn't it? I couldn't imagine life without my Wacom.

Kathleen,

Since you have a graphire, is there anything about it that you don't like? It sounds as though you feel like you got good bang for your buck.

when i first got it, i had a lot of trouble cloning; and really still it seems i always have to drag it just a little rather than just touching down with it. this had the effect of causing me to clone less, (more feathered selections) which may have been good. as a matter of fact, i think the first time i ever posted to this forum it was rel to this problem.

that really has been only a minor irritation and i never use the mouse for anything. it has not bothered me enough to be willing to be without it long enough to send it back for a replacement if it's merchandise related rather than operator. don't know.

and mine's the littlest size, i think 4x5; i can see where bigger might be nicer but for the most part, this works fine for me.

i think somebody who's used a bigger fancier one might not like it, but if all you ever used was a mouse, you'd prefer the pen. oh but let me add my mouse was one of those aggravating perfectly round mac ones.

what about you, ed? mouse or tablet?

Thanks for the reply. I'm still using a mouse, although I've been wanting to try a tablet for a while. The more expensive tablet would be out of the question for me, and I'm not sure I could even justify the basic model. But that doesn't mean I'll never get one. Just have to keep checking out the neighbor's trash cans.
