Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Tablet settings, part of Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Skin.
Let's go over to the computer's System Preferences and set up our Wacom tablet to work better for us. First thing I do when I sit down at a new station, is open up the Wacom Prefs right here in the system Prefs. And I set my button right here on my stylus. There's a top button right here, and there's a bottom one right here, that both perform different functions if you set it. So you click right here onto Keystroke and for the top button, I have Shift+ Control. Shift+Control allows me to jumping back to Photoshop, getting a brush. Shift+Control allows me to toggle back and forth between different blending modes of the brush, more quickly than having to stop what it is that I'm doing at the moment, and go up here to the Mode.
And change it to whatever setting it is that you wanted it to be on. So let's hit OK there, and now the bottom button right here I have set onto Option. You'd set that up the same way. Going back over here to Photoshop, and let's go over to our Stamp tool, because this works really well for when you're clone stamping. And just zoom in here. And now, just pressing the bottom part of the button, I'm able to sample, and then do my clone stamping. So, it's a really, really great way of not having to press on the keyboard to change the different functions of your brushes.
You can just control it with your finger.
