I'm going to get a Wacom tablet to do touch-up work with and have a couple questions for you tablet users...

1) What are the differences in the Graphire 3 and Graphire 4 tablets.

2) Is a 4x5" tablet sufficient for photo retouching? The 6x8" tablet would be nice, but it's double the price. If I were drawing or doing completely digital art, then I'm sure a larger tablet would be nice/necessary. But will a 4x5 do well for removing blemishes, masking, etc?

And if there's a better solution than the Graphire tablet, please says so.

Thanks in advance!

I have an older Graphire (2 I think?) 4x5 and love it.

After getting used to the pen and setting up the hot buttons, I rarely use a mouse anymore (for anything).

Thanks, Jon. I'm going to go with the Graphire4 4x5. I've read reviews in several places that agree the 4x5 is the way to go for folks like me. The features of the Intuos line are nice, but honestly add more complexity than I need.

As Jon said, I rarely use a mouse anymore after getting my 4x5 tablet. It didn't take all that long to get used to and it works great. I am sure you will like it man!
