Wacom tablets – for all your photo editing needs


Wacom tablets are perfect tools when doing any type of photo editing or graphic design. Since they make use of stylus input, they provide an intuitive and comfortable means of editing digital visual content. Three basic models are available and the differences are explained by Gunther Swart in this video.

The Wacom Intuos Creative is available in the Pen as well as the Pen and Touch variation. The basic difference is in the “touch” feature, only available in the latter. This feature behaves like a trackpad on a laptop and allows the use of gestures like pinch-to-zoom and dragging an image around in the editing window using your fingers. The tablet is pressure sensitive measuring 1024 levels of pressure. This makes it perfect for tools like doge-and-burn as the strength of the effect is tied in with the pressure applied.

The Wacom Intuos Pro has all the pen and touch features but measures a higher 2048 levels of pressure and thus is more accurate when using pressure sensitive tools in photo editing software. It also features an array of shortcut buttons on the side, all programmable to suit your specific photo editing style.
