Optimize your Wacom tablet for use with Adobe Photoshop and get finer control when drawing and painting.
- [Voiceover] Hi. I'm Kevin Stohlmeyer, an Adobe Certified Instructor and welcome to using Wacom Tablets with Adobe Photoshop. Using a Wacom Tablet when drawing in Adobe Photoshop can expand your artistic skills by utilizing a natural brush to canvas feel. A Wacom Tablet is really an indispensable tool when working inside Adobe Photoshop, giving you control based on your pen pressure and angle of use. 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 into setting up your system preferences for each part of your Wacom Tablet, including ExpressKeys, the Touch Ring, and Radial Menu.
Then, I'll show you how to customize your settings specifically for Adobe Photoshop, and finally, I'll show you how to use the features inside Adobe Photoshop specifically designed for pen and tablet usage, with the brush and custom settings including natural tip brushes and erodible brushes. 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 into Adobe Photoshop. So let's get started.
- Changing the pen nib
- Customizing the ExpressKeys, touch options, and more
- Understanding opacity vs. flow
