    My favorite quote from one of my photography instructors is: “Retouching with a mouse is like painting with a potato.”

    I had an Intuos 5 within a week.

    After watching this, I am wondering to myself “Why am I still using a mouse!!???!?!?!?!”
    So … I ordered a Intous 5 Touch M. Sometimes it takes a 2×4 to hit me in the head to get my brain moving. Excellent series, this addresses something I have wanted to do for a long time, thank you Cory! —- Yes, please post my feedback
