Product Specifications

Graphire3 gives you the control you need to quickly and easily edit your digital photos. It works great with any software your mouse does and runs on both PCs and Macs. Draw, paint, create artwork for CDs/DVDs, sign your name, and annotate documents in Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft PowerPoint. You can even write directly in Microsoft Office XP and with Apple Inkwell. With both a Wacom pen and mouse you'll have the right tool for any task. Using them alternately reduces repetitive motion. Join more than 2, 000, 000 satisfied Wacom tablet users and get the control, comfort, and productivity of Graphire today. Quickly and easily edit your digital photos using the control of the Graphire pen and your free copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 2. Selectively apply high-quality photographic effects using the included Color Efex Pro 2 GE software by nik multimedia. Create great looking artwork with the natural feel of your Graphire pen and the amazing capabilities of Painter Essentials 2 by Corel. When used with a Wacom pen, Painter Essentials looks and feels like just about any natural art tool your heart desires. The Graphire pen makes it easy to sketch and write notes in Microsoft Office XP and Apple Inkwell. Mark up documents in Microsoft Word, annotate presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint, and even jot a note to friends and family. The Graphire pen is pressure-sensitive so you can control the amount of a software tool's effect by varying how firmly you press the pen tip to the tablet. The pen is easy to use because every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen. Where you touch your pen tip to the tablet is where you click.
