The Intuos can be checked out along with one of Ignite’s HP Elitebook laptops, where you can create your digital illustrations in Corel Draw, Corel Paint, or Autodesk Sketchbook. You can also check out the tablet along with one of Ignite’s Digital Media Labs, which offer desktop iMacs with access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud (CC Photoshop and CC Illustrator are favorites to use with the tablet).
You don’t have to be an artist to use the Intuos tablet, either. Educators and tutors doing distance learning and online classes can use the tablet to write out class notes and lectures. The tablet pen can also help photo editors make more precise changes to pictures. And graphic designers can use the tool to stylize their work more naturally than with a mouse.
