In this episode, learn why we love the Wacom tablet and pick up some tips along the way. We’ll show you how to install your tablet and the basics of using it in Photoshop!

Possibly the very best part about using a Wacom Tablet is the pressure sensitivity. It acts like a paint Brush rather than a solid object (mouse).

We prefer the Intuos Pro Small tablet, because there is no need for giant brushstrokes when Photo Editing. You can purchase the tablet here: Wacom Intuos Pro Small

    ..update to new users on windows 10. In mapping uncheck the use ink box at the bottom. I nearly went bald, after windows 10 rolled out, because of this.

    I bought my Intuos Pro based on your recommendation a few years ago. Love it but haven’t used it enough so I watched this video (which is updated from the last one you did) and felt jealous that mine wasn’t wireless. Cut to the end of Part 2 where you show where the USB dongle goes and I look at my tablet and see the same spot… FACEPALM. I go back to my Intuos Pro box and realize I’d not taken the USB dongle out when I first unboxed it. Thanks for making my tablet wireless (not really but really). I can’t wait to delve into more of your videos, they’re so well put together and are easy to digest.
