Wacom tablets are a popular alternative to the mouse for painting, drawing, and navigating your computer in a more natural position. In this course, artist and teacher John Derry shows how to get up and running with a variety of Wacom tablets (Intuos, Cintiq, and more), covering everything from setup to stylus selection. He then shows how to speed up your workflow and enhance your command of the drawing surface with ExpressKeys, the Touch Ring, and other controls. Plus, learn about tablet ergonomics—which makes your Wacom even more compatible with your working conditions—and follow a few exercises to warm up your drawing arm.
Besides its stylus input, Wacom Tablets have various touch controls that can be customized to your specific applications. This is all adjusted via the Wacom Properties Panel. These services include express keys, touch rings, hardware control keys, and on-screen menus. In this chapter, we'll take a look at each of these, and learn how to program them to your specific needs.
