Optimize your Wacom tablet for use with Adobe Lightroom and get more control over lighting and tonal adjustments, retouching, and compositing.
- Hi, I'm Kevin Stohlmeyer, an Adobe certified instructor and welcome to using Wacom tablets with Adobe Lightroom CC. Using a Wacom tablet while editing in Lightroom can really make for a seamless workflow. From using express keys in the touch ring to the pressure sensitive options with the grip pen, a Wacom tablet is a really great addition to your tools. First, I'll show you the different components of a Wacom tablet, including the grip pen and how to replace your nibs. Next, we'll get in to setting up your system preferences for each part of your Wacom tablet, including express keys, the touch ring, and radial menu.
Then, I'll show you how to customize settings specifically for Lightroom. And finally, I'll show you how to use features inside Lightroom specifically designed for pen and tablet usage with the adjustment brush, spot removal tool, and express keys. There are all sorts of great options available when using your Wacom tablet and I'm excited to show you how to bring this workflow in to Adobe Lightroom CC. So let's get started.
