View Full Version : Wacom intuos2 peripherals

01 January 2003, 10:35 PM
I'm just wondering what's up with the additional intuos2 devices? I've read the facts about them and all, but I'm still wondering what the designer pen is good for. For all I know it's made of aluminium, it lacks the eraser and it costs a good fortune, and that's it. And the stroke pen. The nib travels further... Is that of any use? Has anyone tried any of the extra devices and can tell me if they're useful, please?

While your at it, how do you make Photoshop 7 recognize the pressure levels?

It's making me angry by now.

I am missing my original Wacom CDs too, I remember a plugin of somesort.

Are you refering to pen tools.....

My wacom has presure sensitivity in photohop...I didn't do anything to get it that way....

You can get the drivers and plug-ins from the Wacom website. And yes, there's a plug-in required for the pen's pressure settings to work with PhotoShop.

I was talking about the actual hardware, y'know. The little extra pens that you can by for intuos2?

The only add-on I would consider for my Intuos2 is the airbrush. Other than that I think the standard pen is fine and see no reason to spend the extra bucks for a "designer" pen, unless bragging rights are important.
