Photoshop can be both a blessing and a curse. Undoubtedly, for many of us, it is a necessity to create the kind of images we desire. Like every piece of software, however, there are things that make our life easier and things that drive us insane. Join Peter Eastway while he demonstrates how he transforms images into art using his Wacom tablet.


How to supercharge the Adobe brush engine with Wacom pressure sensitivityImage

The Adobe Brush Engine in Photoshop can be an amazing tool. When you connect a Wacom pen tablet or creative pen display to your computer, Photoshop recognizes your use of the tablet and gives you access to a number of capabilities that were not available to you before. One of the most significant benefits is the recognition of pressure sensitivity in the Wacom pen. All tools that leverage the Brush Engine can take advantage of pressure sensitivity.

Learn popular effects using Adobe PhotoshopImage

Few of the popular effects created by designers with the use of Photoshop are inverted effects, graffiti effects, light effects, fire effects and so on. Fire effects are one of the most popular ones. You might have notice while surfing through Facebook, Flickr or Pinterest many fire effects used images. You stay spell bound with the perfect touch made with fire effects. This is done with mastery over Photoshop tools. Learning Photoshop can be at times tricky, but with help this becomes simple and easy.

Wacom pen tablet benefits in PhotoshopImage

Wacom's pressure-sensitive pens are recognized in the two dozen or more tools and brushes in Photoshop. From the Clone Stamp and Healing Brush, to Layer Masks and Adjustment Layers, you can dynamically adjust colour temperature, exposure, tone, contrast, and most other features, all by how lightly or firmly you press your pen to the tablet. Your creative edits and enhancements will look more natural and organic using a pressure-sensitive Wacom pen.

Wacom brings out the best in Photoshop's multi-touch InterfaceImage

Recently, Adobe introduced multi-touch support in Photoshop, similar to what we already enjoy in Adobe® Illustrator®. Multi-touch gestures speed up your workflow by enabling you to get to the details that you wish to edit faster and make the necessary changes more intuitively. With integrated multi-touch capabilities, Wacom's Intuos Pro and Cintiq line enable you to pinch, zoom, and rotate with ease, while brushing on enhancements with the Wacom pen.

Come into our Sydney and Melbourne showroom's for a Try Before You BuyImage

Both our showrooms have experienced staff who can demonstrate the features of the new Wacom Intuos Tablets, Cintiq Pro and MobileStudio Pro. No need for an appointment just come in bring some files and have a play with the complete range of Wacom products.
