Photocopier: the fact that arne can also code so well
Photocopier: is horrificly unfair

pull your perspective points further away to minimize the distortion you get on your landscape

I bought a cintiq.  I have 15 days to decide if I want to keep it for good.  So far i'm impressed with the workflow, but disappointed with the contrast/saturation of the screen itself.

Quick dabble:

As long as you always color correct on your real screen, it's not such a problem is it? You can even make a photoshop action with a little practise that corrects these automatically and stuff.

agreed. Cintiq is a bit off color. Sometimes to the point where I see no difference between two colors at all.
To overcome that I:
1. Create a Smart Object from all layers.
2. Edit the SM by double clicking. This opens a 2nd window.
3. Leave the original window on your monitor. Drag the SM window to your Cintiq.
4. Draw some stuff.
5. Hit your 'save' hotkey.
6. The original will be updated.
7. Compare and continue.

That way you can see both at the same time without having to move the window back and forth.
I suggest you don't return it. I've really enjoyed mine. :) but its your call.

?? Are we talking about Photoshop? What's wrong with just having a second window of the exact same image you're working on on your main screen? it updates real-time

oops! forgot to mention. yes that's Photoshop stuff.
you can open 2 of the same image? in Photoshop CS3 or above? Trying now and doesn't seem to work unless I'm missing something.
unless you mean in windows or something else?
