    I don't know how it works there in New Zealand, but here in Toronto, university programs are compiled with different courses. For example, in the first semester of the first year, two of the four courses...

    This might just be me, but writing in 3rd person feels impersonal. I guess its one of those things when there isn't a right or wrong way of doing things, just personal preference. If I was a client, I...

    I'd like to see more emphasis on the Locally Global part. Maybe you can make the font style bolder. Other than that, you're logo looks great and good to go. Design's simple which makes it more professional...

    This is better than the first one. But there are still some things I'm concerned about. The ".co.nz" style looks dated maybe because of the font used and because you stretched it. You can put...

  • drawing on a touchscreen monitor?

    Hello

    (hope this is posted to the right forum spot)

    I am a long time web developer but weak in graphics, and looking to improve my skills.

    I have tried a tablet in the past but found it impossible to follow lines on the screen while drawing on the tablet.

    The wacom cintiq sounds like the right item, but the price tag is waaay high, so I am wondering if it is a reasonable option to get a cheaper touchscreen monitor, maybe $2-300, and drawing directly on that in photoshop.

    If this is an ok idea, I also have another tech issue, currently using quad monitors with a matrox quad head, and would need to put another pci display card. I think windows 7 would handle that ok, but looking ahead to possible gotcha's...

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Cheers
    Mike
