WACOM PTZ-930 DRIVER
I particularly enjoyed the ability to use pressure sensitivity when applying Nik Color Efex filters to images in Photoshop. For a softer, more “brush-like” feel, swap out the stock tip for the included spring-loaded version. I personally found the default settings to be perfect for zooming in and out of an image in Photoshop, so I left them unchanged. Wacom also includes complimentary versions of Photoshop Elements 4. I personally found the all-plastic pen to be perfectly weighted and balanced.

Anyone working on an image in Adobe Photoshop or on a drawing in Corel Painter realizes how nice it would be to just pick up a pen and “draw” rather than trying to use a mouse. The setup on my Vista-based desktop was a breeze.
Although the Intuos3 automatically detects and adjusts for multiple displays, I did find that moving the mouse and pen from one screen to the other via the tablet was a little more difficult than expected.

All of the ExpressKeys come pre-programmed see image below but each button can also be individually configured to control whatever function you desire. The two “Touch Strips” likewise come pre-programmed but can be customized to meet the specific needs of each user.
When I move a mouse I typically use the “pick up and reposition” method where I move the mouse a short distance, pick it up, move it back and then repeat the movement rather than having to move the mouse over a giant distance to cover two displays.
Of course, there are some things that are simply much more difficult if not impossible to do without a pen tablet. However, serious high-resolution graphics work often requires the processing power of a well-equipped desktop. Since many artists myself included often place a pen tablet on the lap while drawing it would have been nice if the base of the Intuos3 had two large rectangular or oval-shaped pads to cushion the lap.
