Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Grip Pen: Pen/Mouse mode, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Photoshop.
- The Grip Pen is the most identifiable option…associated with the Wacom Tablet.…You can customize your pen by selecting it…from the Tool row up above, and then selecting Pen, Eraser,…and Mapping tabs down below.…The first thing we'll take a look at…is adjusting the Tip Feel over on the left.…You can use the slide bar to give it a Soft or Firm response…to your pen pressure, and you can actually see down below…the Custom Pressure by clicking and dragging your cursor…using the Pen Tool.…Customize will allow you…to customize the input and output profile…of your Pen Pressure.…
This is a great option when you're changing your pen tips,…which is something we covered in the first chapter.…Simply by dragging the center point,…we can change Sensitivity to make it less sensitive…or more sensitive by adjusting the curve.…Be sure and test this out using the scratch pad…before you hit OK.…If you test it out and find it's not to your liking,…simply come back, click Default, and try again.…You can also change the Double Click proximity…
