New Wacom Intuos Tablets Give Designers Creativity

September 9, 2015

Loyal readers know that I believe all designers should have a graphics tablet as an input device. I wrote Everyone Should Have a Wacom Tablet, Here Are The Two Best Options last fall giving the reasons and two great options. Just to clarify, we aren’t tablet about tablets running iOS or Android, these are pointing devices to work in place of a mouse or in conjunction with a mouse.

The folks at Wacom have released four new models in their Intuos Pen and Touch line. This is their entry-level line of tablets for creatives, but I’m not sure most users would take advantage of the additional features in the “Pro” line and you’ll pay more for those features. Let’s go through the four new tablets. Note that each is available in different colors.

Wacom Intuos Draw (currently sells for $69.95 at Amazon)

This is the least expensive model and it has the smallest size at 8.25 x 6.7 inches for the entire tablet with a large active area (where you point/draw). The pen is wireless and battery free and the tablet connects via USB to either Mac or PC. It includes Art Rage Lite sketching and drawing software and a free 8×10 metal photo print.

Wacom Intuos Comic (currently sells for $99.95 at Amazon)

As far as the hardware, it is identical to the Intuos Draw. The difference is the bundled software and extras. It comes with Clip Studio Paint Pro and Anime Studio software as well as ten free comic books with purchase of 25 comic books.

Wacom Intuos Photo (currently sells for $99.95 at Amazon)

Once again, the hardware is the same with the difference being in the bundled goodies. It comes with a Shutterly Photo Album, a Horizon Canvas Print and photo editing software. Mac software includes Corel After Shot Pro 2 and Macphun Pro package. Windows software includes Corel Paint Shop Pro X8 and Corel After Shot Pro 2.

Wacom Intuos Art (currently sells for $199.95 at Amazon)

This is a bigger tablet with total size of 10.75 x 8.75 inches. The included goodies include Corel Painter Essentials drawing and painting software, a free 8×10 metal photo print, and a 8×8 Shutterfly Photo Album.

Which Wacom Tablet to Get?

Obviously the first three are identical except for the bundled software. Unless you really want the software, go for the least expensive option which is the Wacom Intuos Draw. For those wanting a larger tablet, then you’ll want the Wacom Intuos Art.
