Re: which one fully compatible for CS5.

Ive just recently purchase the Wacom Bamboo Touch A6...Not high end but pretty decent for the price. I don't use the touch stuff but eventually finds that the side key are pretty usefull (for myself one is assigned for CTRL+Z, one for ALT - Stamp sampling, one for CTRL)

it's seems to be fully compatible with CS5 but haven't tried. (CS4)

I've been using Aiptek 600U (http://www.aiptek.eu/index.php?optio...184&Itemid=542) for couple of years now, working mainly on transformation of photo to pop art, it requires high precision and care for details. It is very affordable and reliable product... fully compatible with CS5...

Re: which one fully compatible for CS5.

All Wacom tablets are compatible with any software. I don't even own a mouse anymore. You're cheapest and best option would be the Bamboo Pen and Touch Small which retails for around $159AU or you could go the Bamboo Pen only for $99AU (you'll only get 512 levels of pressure instead of 1024 and you will miss out on the eraser on the other side of the Pen.)

Do your research. www.youtube.com/wacom is a good place to start.

Re: which one fully compatible for CS5.

Sometimes you can find a good deal on a used one. Doesn't always happen though.

24" monitors and above seem to have become quite common for a lot of people on here. If you're using anything in this range, any tablet below the intuos large (whatever dimensions they are this day) is going to be extremely uncomfortable. If you're buying new I suggest buying from a place with a lenient return policy in case you go for a cheaper one and don't like it. Remember the larger your monitor, the greater the mapping disparity between monitor and tablet. If they're too far apart in size, you may find it more comfortable to work in mouse mode (acceleration off and mapping toward the lower end) than in a way where when you move the pen 3 cm, it moves 7 cm or more on screen.

I can't stand weird mapping personally. If you want precision without going painfully slow, you have to be able to feel where your cursor is going.

I have 21" Display (1200 x 1600 resolution) and Intuos A5 wide (model PTK-640)
I have no problems with mapping.
There also is a new so called PrecisionMode, that you can enable, while pressing one of the buttoms - this will change the scale of the mapping by apx. 500%. So you have the possibility to go for an individual pixel at a picture shown at 100% very easily.

Best would be to try it out.

Michael

Re: which one fully compatible for CS5.

I have a 24" iMac and a 4" x 6" Bamboo Fun set to map the full screen. No problems whatsoever. I actually find the small tablet easier to use than a large one would be, since I tend to draw with my fingers rather than my arm.
