However, even though I had the main tablet software installed, the bundled software that comes with it was a totally different story. There are in all 6 different kinds of software to choose from, but you must choose 5 out of the 6. I choose: Autodesk Sketchbook Express, Corel Painter Sketch Pad, Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, and Wacom Brushes (goes with Photoshop).
Here are some tips:
-Do not click "Run" when you reach the download list. If it wants to link you to the internet to try to get you to download another piece of software to help it install, then that is RED FLAG all over. Instead of clicking "Run" click "Save", and make sure to put it in a file where you can remember where they are.
-Once you get all the downloads saved in a good place, look at the names. At the end, there should be either ".zip" or ".exe" at the end of each name. For example, "corelsketchpad.exe" or "adobepe9.zip". If you do not see these, then that means you will not be able to install the downloads properly. But do not panic. Sometimes certain web browsers do not save downloads correctly and the extensions get dropped. All you have to do is rename the download (right-click the name, add the extension, and presto!). Please look below:
Add ".zip" to: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Wacom Brushes Add ".exe" to: Autodesk Sketchbook Corel Painter Nik Color Efex Adobe Photoshop Elements 8
You'll know if these extensions worked if the little icon that is next to the download name changes for a white piece of paper to a icon that associates what the download does.
-double click on the download to get started with the installation.
-If you can't figure out what it means when it asks for a serial number during the installation process, go to your email and there should be a message titled "Licence Keys". This message should contain the serial numbers you'll need to complete your installation.
A huge problem that this Intuos4 has are its nibs, the tips for the pen. They wear down fast and I've found that the Quick Start guide does not tell you how to change nibs. Youtube (good ol' Youtube :) ) does though:
And if you're having trouble figuring out how to change the ExpressKeys, there is a whole set of helpful videos on where else? Youtube!
For anymore help, you know where to ask!
Good luck, tablet friends!
