With six dimensions of pen control, the new 6D Art Pen offers you 360 degrees of barrel rotation, allows you to tilt the pen in any direction, and easily change pen position on the fly.

He means does the tablet have a screen on itself, and the answer is that only the Cintiqs and cintiq jr, whatever it is, do that. Those are like 3000 dollars, so it might not be worth it if you are just having fun. That is a lot of money, and I hope to get one of those someday but that is a lot of money.

You can also get a DTF-521 which is 15"(1024x768) with only 512 pressure levels, but it's much cheaper: $1299.

I'm going to get a DTF-720 17"(1280 x 1024), also only 512 prs. lvls. and for $1599. I'm lucky I have the money.

I'm only not courageous enough to buy it yet. I don't like to giving away much money...

I have a question:
-if you drew something in the very top-left corner of the tablet, inputting into flash, would it automatically reposition itself at the center of the Flash stage? Or would the cursor just bum around the top left of the screen without drawing anything?

However, most tablets come with a setup in which you can set a defined area to work with. For example, you can set it so that the screen edges AREN'T the tablet's edges. You can reduce the work area, which is a good feature.

Also, Onnet, i sent you a pm.

The size of the tablet represents your computer screen. For instance, the bigger the tablet is, the more precise and smaller the strokes will be. However, a big tablet can be a burden; so don't get one. Then again, with a small one, you can make the "work area" smaller, therefore making the brush bigger, and easier to work with. At least that's my opinion.

I don't use my tablet much.

Honestly; I just researched on that. And I believe Photoshop 7 has the Pressure Sensitivity.
I believe photoshop elements as well has it. (located on the official Wacom Website)

Ahh let's see here. The Graphire 4X5 is worth it a matter afact.
It may be cheaper but it IS worth it.

Here's the reason for a BIGGER tablet.
If you want your drawings more detailed and more professional maybe I suggest a bigger tablet for a better finished product.

of course there is the zoom button but...whatever =P

Any tablet size is good; it just matters with the person using it.
If they want a big screen for their work to be displayed on than there you go . you got your big tablet. But if it doesn't really bother you than I suggest a 4X5.

enough said. Hope that helped.

Awesome; I would love the publicity; and sharing with your friends.

I really hope this thread helps out people.
I really have noticed there have been SO MANY tablet threads.

Might as well keep it organized in here.

ATTENTION!!!
Anyone, and I mean ANYONE who have any ideas or tricks in tablets tell us about them. Favorite Techniques, easier way to do things, cheap prices, cheap stores, bad tablets, good tablets, you name it!

I would love to hear people's questions and I'll try my best to answer them as well as other NG USERS.

Thank you guys for actually viewing this thread.

I appreciate it.. Much love <3
