About Wacom

For the serious photographer, designer, and artist...

Intuos3 gives you the power to quickly and professionally edit photos and create digital artwork by turning on the full power of Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, and over 100 other leading software applications.

Intuos3 tablets now put ExpressKeys and Touch Strips right at your fingertips for convenient keyboard shortcuts, scrolling, zooming, brush size control, and more.

Wacom's Penabled technology gives you the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented cordless and battery-free tablet technology. You'll find that using an Intuos pen, mouse, and tablet gives you more control, comfort, and productivity.

Alternating between the comfortable Grip Pen and the ergonomic five-button Intuos3 mouse reduces repetitive motion. It's an easy and natural way to work.

Using a pen tablet is easy: It's easy to use a pen tablet because every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen. Where you touch your pen tip to the tablet is where you click.

Pressure sensitivity: The Intuos3 Grip Pen gives you the power of pressure-sensitive control. Pressure sensitivity lets you control your software tools by changing how hard you press the pen tip to the tablet surface. Using pressure sensitivity you can dynamically control things like brush size, opacity, and more.

NOT for VISTA

I used the tablet for several years with Windows XP operating Adobe CS2 and then CS3. I absolutely love it and couldn't imagine using Photoshop without it. Then I bought a new computer which came with VISTA. I was eager to use it with 4 times the memory and a faster clock speed. It lost a serious amount of flexibility and all the use of the pads buttons and sliders. Nothing I have downloaded and reinstalled will make it work to teh level it previously did.

Love this so much more than a mouse

By

from Indiana  -  Experienced

I work for a company retouching pictures. I left using a mouse and was a little scared to hear that we got these to use. I came back and the first two days I hated it. After I got the hang of it. I love the pen pad. I cant wait to get one for home. It has almost doubled my productivity. I'm sure my boss loves that.

A natural way of graphics manipulation.

By

from Sydeny, Australia.  -  Experienced

The Intuos3 6"x8" is a good resonable size for graphics and Photoshop work. The pen movement feels natural, though it takes a little time getting used to. The pad size offers a fine degree of control, much more over the smaller size offering, plus the addition of a mouse makes the whole unit pretty much complete. For the price it saves a hell of a lot of work, and nerves. Installation is so easy. At a minimum just plug it in, and away you go. The additional software allows customisation of the buttons, pen, and mouse and also allows specific customisation unique to applications, and also includes extra software brushes for Photoshop use. The overall size is no bigger than my Toshiba A7 Laptop, and is weighty enough to stay put on the desk, and thin enough to include in the laptop case.

Great for Photoshop manipulation.

By

from Port Townsend, WA

The pen interface is so much more natural to me than the mouse. I'm not quite as fast with it yet using some functions after a day or two, but I am more accurate. Blurring edges and cloning in Photoshop was much easier and I can tell my speed will increase with practice.
