Wacom Tablets Enhanced with Adobe Photoshop CS6
Those using a Wacom Intuos 5 professional pen tablet or Cintiq interactive pen display are said to gain significant advantages in precision, accuracy and expression.
Wacom has established a reputation amongst the design community as the tablet provider of choice.
This is especially true for those using Adobe's Creative Suite, thanks to the integration of Wacom pen pressure sensitivity, with its 2048 levels of pressure, in the CS software and the performance of the Wacom tablet itself. Whether retouching a photo in Adobe Photoshop CS6, completing a new drawing in Adobe Illustrator CS6 or constructing an interactive document with Adobe InDesign CS6, a Wacom pen offers a seductive combination of control with a natural feel, as well as ergonomic and navigational benefits.
Several new features in Photoshop CS6 specifically take advantage of Wacom tablets.
For example, Erodible Tips simulate the natural wear of charcoals or pastel brushes.
The Wacom professional pen's pressure-sensitivity and tilt recognition attempt to reproduce a traditional media-like feel, similar to the experience of drawing or painting on paper or canvas.
The pen tip can function with a user-selected erosion point, with sharpening it being as simple as accessing the Brush Tip pane within the Brush Panel and making the change.
Airbrush Tips embody the characteristics of a traditional airbrush, with the tilt and pressure sensitivity functions of a Wacom Intuos or Cintiq pen allowing users to naturally "throw" paint in the desired direction, consistency and spread. Brush Pose enables Wacom users to set pen parameters for tilt (X and Y axis), rotation and pressure.
The "override" feature gives pen users options to customize pen control. For example, an artist can lock the angle of a brush while painting to obtain a repeated effect.
All of Photoshop CS6's new tips and brushes are also enhanced with Wacom's Art Pen, which recognizes tilt and barrel rotation or the "twist" of an artist's brush.
The pen tablets and interactive pen displays also feature bezel-mounted customizable ExpressKeys and Touch Rings to create, and offer quick access to, frequently used keyboard shortcuts and modifiers.
These non-dominant hand features are said to greatly enhance productivity by allowing the user to concentrate on pen input and the creative process.
Since the customized settings are application specific, CS6 users can create personalized settings for one or all of the Creative Suite applications.
