That brand of tablet is good?

And you did the image in photoshop or PDN?

Wacom is without a doubt, the best tablet you can get. Their new Bamboo series is really good, too (I've played with it, don't have one).

My friend has a Wacom and he prefers mine...

Really?! Can you tell me why? I am really thinking of getting a tablet, and wanna know.

Thanks.

Well, I don't remember which model he has (not a bamboo), but the action was really jumpy. When he draws a circle it looks more like a polygon because it doesn't register his complete movement.

Anyway, the Bamboo has half the pressure levels of the Genius, and lower resolution.

Pressure Sensitivity

Wacom Bamboo - 512 levels

Genius MousePen - 1024 levels

Resolution (lines per inch)

Wacom Bamboo - 2,540

Genius MousePen - 4,064

I got the Genius for $48.99 + shipping, so price was definitely the kicker for me...

Wow, better than my WACOM. My Volito2...

Pressure sensitivity:

512 levels

Resolution:

40 lines per millimetre = ~1,016 lines per inch

Price (exc. P&P):

GBP£39.99 = ~USD$83.24

It works and hasn't failed me as of yet (touch wood) so I don't mind that my WACOM, an apparently international leader of the graphic tablet market, is falling short of a 'lesser' brand - and I use 'lesser' very lightly.

@Ash: I have a Genius tablet. I love it. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Have you heard Bill Cosby's bit on children and their brains?

"They're BRAIN DAMAGED!"

:-D

While searching for a single-flame tutorial using the forum search, I encountered this:

Running Image > Resize, keeping the same size or specifying a 100% ratio, run "successfully" without minding

I've almost reported a bug for this, "Hey, resizing twice in a row don't work...".

It it worth requesting a reminder saying "you dumb user, you can't resize something keeping the same size, it's idiot"?

Please comment.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

EDIT: Weird moment. I was watching an Allstate commercial when I see that too-farmiliar font, Segoe on the screen. Is that legal?
