Which size XP-Pen Artist drawing tablet should I buy?

Q: Which size XP-Pen Artist drawing tablet should I buy?

I have a fifteen inch XP-Pen Artist 15.6 ( I buy it from https://www.amazon.co.uk/Artist15-6-1920x1080-Graphics-Drawing-Battery-free/dp/B0785682VP ). I want to use it for drawing (love to draw people, nature, animals and sometimes abstract), graphic design and editing photos. I do want to have accuracy. I've read that small would be good because it all depends on the screen size in comparison to the actual tablet, but I've also read that you can get more accuracy with a slightly larger tablet. such as XP-Pen Artist22E ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Artist22E-Graphic-Interactive-Shortcut-Adjustable/dp/B01M28DHOA )I don't mind moving my hand a bit for accuracy. I've called best buy and all they say I cannot test the tablet, but I can buy it and return it if its not to my liking.

I'd really like to test it out however to choose. I've used small tablets before and recall having to do some zooming in for nice detail on the 15 inch. I no longer have one and would like to find the best fit. I guess I could be leaning toward either whatever is truly the best fit for me. I want to create beautiful works of art and to eventually do it professionally.

Let me know what you think is the best solution in this case. Thank you so much!

Hi Lenovo community, I just got a drawing tablet. It's a HUION Kamvas (like a Wacom Cintiq). It connects via USB for tablet functionality (perhaps the Kamvas output) and HDMI cable for the graphics screen function to turn on. I can't get the tablet to project the Yoga laptop screen or get a dual screen. In the settings under "display", I couldn't get the tablet to connect via Bluetooth, or in any other discoverable way. I can't fix this through the HUION driver settings or reinstalling it. I've called LENOVO customer support and they said in order for my tablet to work, it needs to be an external monitor. I think the tablet is an external monitor through an HDMI connection. The tablet buttons and pen work alright because of the USB connection, but I bought this for the 'drawing on the tablet screen experience". The pen that I have for the Yoga is alright for quick sketches and notes, but I need the buttons and HUION drawing functionality. All I need to know is if there is a way to get the HDMI to project onto my tablet. Any advice would be helpful since I've out exercised my creative tech support juices! If it's all for not, then oh well, I'll just try another tablet. Thanks!

I am a portrait artist, and would be happy to trade a drawing for successful help with this problem. I have attached a lo res photo of one of my portraits.
If you can fix this problem for me, you can email me a hi res photo of yourself or a loved one, I will draw a portrait and return it by mail.
DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM:

This computer is used only for my kids to browse the web. They must log on in a limited account. In several years of use this way have had no problem. One
day I was on my administrator account and forgot to log out. One of my kids surfed for hours on my administrator account. She is untrained in web saftey and may have clicked on anything. Immediately after this a browser hijacker appeared. When clicking on most Google search results links, you are redirected to one of many web sales or porn sites. If instead of clicking on the link, you type desired address in address bar, you correctly go to desired site. This started on IE, our default browser, then spread to Firefox, my second choice browser. After limited use of Dogpile and Alta Vista, the hijacker has not yet
appeared on these browsers. Windows updates freeze and fail. System Restore fails every time. Re-start in safe mode fails in a blue screen every time (photo attached). Ocaisionally I get a window saying due to an error, shutdown will occur in x seconds, and then it does shutdown; but I haven't been able to copy the exact message.

Hello Guys,

I'm really conflicted here. and I can't seem to find any answers anywhere....

I don't know whether I should buy an official drawing tablet...or if I should buy this one Android tablet that I've wanted for a long time and just draw on that.

I'm thinking about the Samsung Galaxy Note . And it has some good drawing apps on it and the S pen would be nice... I just wanted to know if anyone else had experience with doing this, and if so, how do you like it?

Of course, I wouldn't use the Samsung tablet just for drawing...but I don't know if I'm willing to buy an actual drawing tablet...I don't know if I'm dedicated enough.

I heard that XP-Pen Deco Pro Drawing Tablet supports connection with Android 6.0 and above devices . Does anybody have experience with it .

Just...what do you think?

Hello there

I've recently ran into a really annoying and to me, worrying, situation in which plugging in my drawing tablet to the front USB sockets manages to freeze my PC. Right as I plug it in there's just no response whatsoever. I haven't had that issue before with the same tablet and as far as I know there weren't any driver updates to it (pretty sure I'd have to do that manually anyways). My PC specs are posted below, the tablet is a Huion H420. I thought the issue was with one specific USB port, as they have in the past sometimes (quite randomly I've felt) gotten "overloaded" or something like that, but trying others I just got the same issue and the crashes require hard resets, which I believe I've seen aren't good for the hardware's health, so I'd really like to resolve the issue. I'll gladly provide any info that's needed.

Ok, I'll try to keep this fairly short and understandable...

So I got a new computer thrown together, and upgrade from my last one, and everything has been working fairly well. Ran into a few problems here and there, as there can be with computers built from scratch, but there is this one thing that isn't making any sense to me.

I've been busy re-installing all of the programs that I like to use, like Photoshop CS2, and I am trying to install my Hanvon 5*6 drawing tablet.

Now, I thought everything would be fine and dandy, seeing as all my other USB ports were working just fine, considering that I was able to transfer files from a flash drive and portable hard drive, but when I plugged in my tablet, an annoying bubble keeps popping up over and over and over again saying that the "USB Device is not Recognized" and all this nonsense about the device has malfunctioned.

I know well that my tablet is working just fine, because I plugged it into my brother's computer and it found the tablet like it should and installed it and worked just fine after installing the drivers.... So, why should my computer not recognize the tablet ether?

In short, my computer refuses to recognize my tablet, but it can use other things, like portable hard drives, flash drives, and my keyboard, just fine without complaining, (Note that my tablet fine works on other computers) and I have the tablet drivers installed and everything.

Anyone have a solution to this problem... Read more

Hello everybody, first of all i'm new in this forum and this is my first post and my english is not the best

I recently installed Vista ultimate x64 (previously i used xp sp2 ) because i upgraded to 4gb of ram and xp doesn't recognize more than 3gb of ram.

I'm a digital artist and i heavily use graphic tablet ( Genius MousePen 8x6 ) for drawing in Photoshop CS3. I found x64 drivers for the tablet and i installed them and everything appeared to be ok.

But when i draw for example a simple line, there is a delay to appear the line on screen. I mean delay in miliseconds, but is very annoying and it makes difficult to draw.

In XP this was not happens, the line appeared in real time.

I noticed when i plug the tablet that there is an annoying window called "Tablet PC Input Panel", this could be the problem ? If yes how do i disable it ?

Or perhaps a hardware problem ? my cpu is Core 2 Quad q6600.

Thanx in advance!

Hi there,

I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem or not.
A friend of mine just got a new drawing tablet to replace her old one and she's having a problem now where if she opens a program to work with the tablet, for example Photoshop, the laptop will register the tablet as a mouse. Also Photoshop will sometimes crash on initializing. She has tried other art programs and the tablet is still acting as a mouse in those, so the Photoshop crash issue might not be related.

Sometimes the laptop will recognize the tablet properly, sometimes it won't. She tried reinstalling the tablet's drivers and it worked for a day or two and then started acting funny again. Even after a reboot or two.

Here's all the information I have:

She's using the tablet in the same usb port as the old one, she believes.
The new tablet is a Intuos 2 graphics tablet.
The old tablet I believe was also a Wacom much like the new one. (she still has the old one btw)
She's using a bamboo create pen on the new tablet.
She hasn't tried cleaning her registry yet.
She hasn't tried using the tablet in a different usb port.
Her laptop is an Acer Aspire AS7741Z-4815
All USB ports are reporting to be up to date and functioning fine.
We're thinking it's either the new tablet itself or the usb port it's in. I'm thinking it's not a physical connection issue because the laptop doesn't display a new connection message when the tablet starts ... Read more

I have literally tried every single thing I can think of. I've had two computer technicians try different things, I've contacted Monoprice support, and nothing is working.


I recently (within the last week) bought a Monoprice MP1060-HA60 (PID 6814) graphics drawing tablet. The pressure sensitivity works but after an undetermined amount of time (can be anywhere from a few seconds to 10 minutes) the tablet stops controlling the mouse. The light on the tablet still lights up when the pen makes contact. I'm wondering if anyone else in the community has had this issue and found something that works?

I've tried the following:
- Installing the drivers from the CD. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times.
- Installing the drivers from the website. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times. There are two versions.

- Installing the Legacy drivers from the UC-Logic website (this worked for a few seconds before causing the tablet to freeze.) Uninstalled and reinstalled several times.
- Installing Photoshop CC 32-bit (since I run a 64-bit system.) Nope.
- Installed an older version of Photoshop (CS6). Works for a few minutes before stopping.

- Tried running Photoshop 64-bit and 32-bit both in compatibility mode with the tablet. Nope.
- Tried messing with all of the settings, nope.
- If I go into Brush Preferences > Shape Dynamics, there is an exclamation mark by the "pressure sensitivity" setting saying that Photoshop needs a pressure-sensitive tab... Read more

I just this morning installed my drawing tablet on this computer and I got this error about 5 minutes into using it. That's the short story.

The long story, however, is that this is my 13th BSOD since I installed a new HD into this laptop and reinstalled the version of Win7 I had. The difference is that this BSOD is the first one I've got that's not a 7A error and that's actually created a dumpfile. It's something of a revelation for me, but it doesn't appear to be at all related to the BSODs I've been suffering to date. Basically, I don't think this means that my old BSODs will suddenly be making dumpfiles for me too. I am curious whether there might be something in the attached dumpfile zip that tells me more than just the basics of what caused this particular BSOD and might help explain my others. That's for someone who know what they're looking at to determine though. For now, it would be helpful to get a solution to this specific BSOD and then I can work on the BSODs that have been bothering me until now.

Here's a link to my original thread addressing all the BSODs I've suffered previously if that info is of interest to anyone and could perhaps help here...

I just purchased a Dell Precision 5510 with a Xeon CPU and the Quadro GPU: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291755935648 
I plan on promptly upgrading the SSD to a PCIe NVMe SSD if it does not have one, the 16GB RAM is fine for now but I like that I have the option to go up to 32GB when I choose to. 
I had some questions for anyone who is using this for more intense work in 3D or digital imaging, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information out there except that the Quadro 1000m is mostly better than a GTX 960-970m GeForce card because most 3D software is more compatible with it and it is more efficient in rendering which means better performance overall – is this true or just marketing for a lower powered GPU?  
I mainly use Maya, Cinema 4D, After Effects and Photoshop in my workflow, most of the work is performed by the CPU but a decent GPU helps to boost render times with certain software and plugins for said software.
I read that the Xeon CPU is built for 24/7 high load server work and enterprise solutions and that it is more effective at heat dissipation than a GeForce variant. I really liked the idea of the laptop handling heat and performace better in this workstation type of a laptop, I plan to keep it cooled with a pad because I know that rendering can be a huge task for most laptops. What I gathered from that info is that I could use this for rendering and not really worry about frying the mobo like might happen with an i7 and GTX combina... Read more

Not a big but very annoying issue.

I have Taskbar vertically on the left. Works well, I like it as it is. On two of my rigs I also have a tablet input device, which puts its own toolbar on Taskbar.

When Taskbar is not locked, the size of the icon is as it should be, the smallest possible as I've set it. When I lock the Taskbar, it seems the size of the toolbar icon is "randomized"; it can stay small as I want to, or it can be huge.

When rebooting, it's normally never the same size it was before shutting Windows down. It really is totally random.

Any ideas?

Hello forum, I am a complete Newbie to Windows 8, having just purchased a Dell Venue Pro 8 tablet running Windows 8.1.
And would like to know if it is possible to adjust a setting or install a piece of software that ensures that whatever I open (an app or a web site) actually scales to my screen size and orientation.

Currently I find that apps such as the Contacts App (see picture below) for example are not properly visible with right hand side obscured, same with certain web pages when I hold the tablet in portrait orientation.

I can obviously scroll across, but figure there might be a more convenient way. I would prefer to see the whole web page on opening and then navigate from there, or the A-Z section of the pictured contacts app.

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks in Advance!

Hi pullend and welcome to Eight Forums,
Its simple just go to search from the charms bar and type in "Resolution" then click the first one "Change screen resolution" then adjust it as you like or you can click detect to make the display fits your tablet.

I went to SSDs on all of my computers some time back, but I still use WD RE4s and 2.5 inch WD Black HDDs for a variety of backup tasks and for storage in which the data will not be accessed for a period longer than is ideal to use a non-powered SSD for. On my Macs I am using El Capitan with OS X Journeled, GUID map, and FileVault 2 encryption. On my SP3 and desktop I am using NTFS with Win 10 64-bit Pro with BitLocker enabled on both machines. The OS and third party programs are currently up to date.

I've generally used ExFAT and the GPT partition map because it allows me to use it on all of my computers, and I have always used the default cluster size. However, I do not think the default size was the best decision for me because the size on disk is over TWICE the actual size.

If I am correct, the default Win 10 cluster size is 4k, and that going BELOW that is useful for the drives I have many smaller files on. Is this correct? Additionally, the smaller cluster size I go, the slower the drive will write, correct? Also, if so, how low do you advise going? I am still torn between reformatting outright or trying one of the programs that allows changes to a currently in-use drive. Any advice? Thanks!

A:Hard drive cluster size issues? Size on HDD over twice the actual size

For the a sector size of 4k to double your disk utilization you'd have to have a really tiny average file size. From your numbers shown the average size if I calculate it correct is 132kb (unless you have 1 massive file and 17,711 tiny ones) so a 4k size will make no difference.

You could check with TreeSize Free - it will tell you if you right click on the status bar and select it to be displayed.



EDIT - having checked the default for ExFat is 128k for drives over 32GB (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/140365) and when I tried to format an external USB drive that is what it picked. According to macbook - Reformat exFat with specific Device Block Size and Cluster Size - Ask Different OSX picks 128k also.

So if you had 128k as your cluster size minimum disk utilization would be 17,772 files * 128k = 2.17GB. So if all your files were just over this (say 132k which looks like your current average size) you would be using 4.44GB add a couple of big files and it could easily be 6GB.

I would check your average file sizes and also your current cluster size (you can use chkdsk as described in the AskDifferent link above).

The default is 4k for NTFS and I have always formatted ExFat as 4k also. Depending on your current setting reformatting 4k looks like a good idea.

As for how - copying the data elsewhere, formatting and then copying it back has to be the easiest, safest and most likely fastest way. You'll also get the disk defragmented automatical... Read more

Installed all drivers, nothing funky in Device Manager, but the touchscreen and the pen are not working. Click on Pen Tablet Properties in Control panel and it tells me Supported Tablet Not Found on the System. This is my first time dealing with one of these, and am lost.  Lenovo Thinkpad X220 TabletIntel i7-2640M(2.8GHz)8GB RAM, 250GB Solid State Drive12.5in 1366x768 Multitouch LCDIntel HD GraphicsIntel 802.11agnBluetooth1Gb EthernetUltraNav, Secure Chip,Fingerprint reader, Camera

I have a Tablet drawing monitor, and today the pen stopped working, I fiddled with it for a while, I tried uninstalling the drivers for the Hardware and reinstalling, but then I noticed that the Tablet Settings and Calibration Options you normally see in Control Panel are mysteriously gone. After maybe 2 hrs of googling I've given up,. there's very little on google, and now im considering doing a "Rest This PC." Any help would be appreciated.

The latest bios update of X1 Tablet (Model:20GG) breaks the sleep (or hibernation) function. I found the tablet sometimes cannot be waken up by pressing the power button after entering connected standby. The version of the flawed BIOS is1.68-1.21 (N1LUJ30W) After rolling the embedded controller version back to 1.20 (N1LUJ29W), the problem no longer exists.

Does anyone know if there is a program available (free if possible) similar to Quicken (Deluxe) that I could use on my Android Tablet(HP 10 Tablet G2 -2301)? That would keep track of bank accounts and interest earned, and keep track of one stock IRA and interest earned and yearly RMD? And produce reports for that interest earned, etc.? Mainly for using when preparing yearly tax forms.

and it keeps on repeating the same thing...
please help me ....

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

Hello! You know in Vista, how if you select an audio file, at the bottom of Windows Explorer appears a listing with various info, which you can edit, such as the artist, album etc.? Well, I was wondering if there is a way to erase artists (for example ones that are just cluttering up the list that you have no other music/files from) from this list, or just disable it altogether? Thank you very much!

I was wondering if there's a program that lets me change the artist name of more than 1 MP3 at a time so I don't have to do it one by one. Its for my IPOD I like the to search my IPOD from artists but with having so many different dance songs it makes it really cluttered and having only 1 or 2 songs from one person. Ive been organizing it one by one but I was wondering if there's an easier way.

Hello, As a artist I would love to be able to draw directly on my Flex 4-1570 Laptop. However, I would like a stylus that has pressure sensitivity, hand detection, etc. Does anyone know of any stylus that has those fancy features and is compatible with my laptop? Usually when I find a stylus with those features it only works with Apple devices or it comes with the device it works with (ex: Galaxy Notes). If I find a stylus that works with all devices it does not work well. I am willing to splurge a little on the price and buy online or in store. Please help! Thanks

I was wondering if anyone would be able to explain to my why Im getting the artist name to show up behind only one song for a list of numerous songs for the same artist. The MP3's in question have had the tags all edited in the most recent version of Tag&rename. Any help on this would be great. I attached a pic aswell

Thanks
 

A:Artist problems in WMP 11

I only get the song names to show up in my playlist because of the way I tag my mp3's. Right-click on the song in the main library and select Advanced Tag Editor...if the artist name shows up in the song title line it will show up in the playlist.

Locate your songs on your hard drive, and right-click on one of them, select properties-summary-advanced; Again check the title line, both in advanced view and in the general tab. If Tag & Rename is retagging the songs in the format you want, check under Tools-Options-Library, and see if the Rename music according to rip settings box is checked...if it is then no matter what you do with a tag editor it will be overwritten by WMP.

I've had iTunes change the artist for a couple songs and it sometimes changes it to an artist I don't even have! For example, it decided to change a Calvin Harris song to Bad Religion, which I don't even listen to nor would I ever have entered this artist name in for any reason. It does things like this when I click to play songs usually. Occasionally it even removes album artwork without me doing anything to it but clicking play. I attempted to look this up but found nothing of this matter, any suggestions?

Hey, I play Heroes of newerth, and am designing a hero myself. The concept is a viking warship.

I am looking for a competent or beginning even(beggers cant be choosers!) photoshopper/artist to create a few icons for the abilities I want this hero to have, AND to help somewhat concept art design the hero as well!

This is obviously a non paying just for fun thing. It won't require any 3D model rendering, just concept art thru any medium as long as it can be converted into jpeg icon models (I believe somewhere around like 75x75pixels. Not sure yet I can find out)

Thanks for anyones time reading this. and viva la windows 7!

If interested please PM me and/or reply to this thread. I will explain in further detail the concept plans. But once you have my information, all artistic creative freedom will be yours. and I will ensure you get all/any credit for your creations.

Hi all,

Anybody know anything about Print Artist 4? Is it compatable with Win XP? I'm having difficulty installing it for a friend, she says she already has it installed on one XP machine, I just keep getting an error saying something about not being able to run _SETUP.EXE. It also said something about setting up in the temp directory, but I haven't got a clue how to do this. So I tried it on another XP machine, it began to work then froze on the internet setup wizard several times.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get on the road to become a writer/storyboard artist for video games. I have one particular idea that would be my eventual goal to make reality but for now I would love to collaborate with other people in the business because I love writing and I think gaming offers itself to a unique narrative. Unfortunately I lack skills such as programming, coding and Ive never had a console long enough to really get into gaming, I just admire it from afar, (Youtube). After two more years at university, I want to have a backup career to my probable lab researcher career. I know its not an easy aspiration but I am willing to work at it for a long time so does anyone know where I should begin? Thank You.

I don't know where you are but they have other regions such as Europe and Asia.

You say you have 2 years to go... They have internships as well. http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/careers/university.html

I really have no idea what it is like to work for them but they are a huge world wide company, worth a look.
