thanks Greg!

you've done some really amazing stuff with your tablet and Painter, and I'm really excited to learn how to do all those kind of things.

David - I don't have Photoshop 7 but it's supposed to have a whole new set of brushes and a revamped painting system...you are going to have a great time when 7 arrives!

Hi David

I've been closely following this thread because I think Santa might be bringing me a tablet also. I was wondering just what you immediately liked about it.. I am a left hander working with a mouse with my right hand and was wondering what good things might be in store for me..Can you tell me the things that were most evident to you..

thanks
Jerry

Hey Jerry,

the things I noticed first: the mouse is a lot lighter than my old mouse, but much more accurate. I love the pen, I got used to it very fast, and it just seems a lot more natural to use than a mouse. I can work a lot faster than I used to be able to.

Jerry, The mouse with the Intuos is symetrical so you can configure it easily for the left hand. Whether this is the case with the Graphire Dave can answer.

whoops, I comletely missed that part of the question, sorry. the Graphire is the same as the intuos apparently. both the pen and the mouse are usable with either hand.

my graphire 4x5 is the second best investment i've made for my computer(next only to photo shop). I don't use a mouse at all any more even for web surfing. I find the pen so much faster.more accurate and a lot less tiring than a mouse.
