    ArtRage???

    Was the Intuos always missing the ArtRage software? -- Maybe it was only with the Graphire/Bamboo?

    Intuos 4

    I got a pic of it in an email ad this morning.

    Looks to me like having that box with the buttons jammed against the left side of the drawing area would be very inconvenient. I would think a persons hand / fingers / pen would be bumping into that all the time.
    My artistic ability is strained to draw stick figures.

    I sit here in front of the computer in awe of the talent displayed by the posters in Art Rage.

    That's quite a positive review from ThatPoshGirl. Makes me want one right away.

    I can't believe I did it, but after lusting after an Intuos3 for years and being convinced that they'd announce the 4 on the day I bought it, I bought the 4 just now. Woo!

    I have a 3, and have been using it for 2 1/2 years now.. I have to say, could the 4 be any better than this??

    Well, yeah :-)

    Six buttons would be an improvement over four. The wheel with four possible meanings... wow! That would be cool if I could have one meaning for changing the tool size, and one for hue, one for lightness, and one for saturation (this would probably require special support from ArtRage). Oddly enough, I never seem to need to zoom in AR! The tools are good enough, I guess, or I don't work small enough... Oh, and the wheel on my Bamboo worked better, I think, than the touch-strip does on the Intuos.

    Anyway, for the near term I think I'll change the touch-strip on my 3 to do brush size... hey, it works! Cool. That'll definitely be more useful.

    So, yeah, no real excuse...

    I got the medium size. My 4x5/4x6 tablets have felt too limited for years now and I'd been wanting to upgrade to the 6x11 Intuos3. I use pretty small wrist movements (vs. long, sweeping brush strokes), so I think this size will suit me well. I would get very tired with a larger size, I think, plus it's too expensive (for the use I would get out of it), plus I don't really have the desk space for a larger tablet.

    Just about everyone to whom I've spoken says that it doesn't matter, so maybe it's all in my head, but having never used an Intuos3 (so with no frame of reference), I really started to feel the limited pressure sensitivity of my rev1 Graphire and wanted to upgrade partly for that reason. The Graphire has 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, the Intuos3 has 1024, and the Intuos4 has 2048. I think the difference will be noticeable.
