Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

yeah i use it for everything, internet, msn, browsing photos...etc, it does take a few days to get used to it but i wouldn't go back to using a mouse now as this feels natural to me, it did feel very weird though when i first got it, i have the same one as you do too (the A5 one)

djslyda: I don't think I'm going to give up the mouse, but never say never it depends on how much I get used to my intuos!

Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

I'm using my pen and tablet to surf the web right now It will feel odd for a few weeks, then a few months later the mouse will feel so heavy and awkward! I rarely use my mouse. You can hit F-5 to open up the brush dialog to toggle it...but no direct shorcut that I know of.

They also make a dvd on using the tablet, might be worthwhile

ADAM: thanks for replying, man! F5!! *Saving data*

I love my Laser mouse! I have glued a cloth underneath so I can us it on my wacom! It's made of very soft cotton! No scratches, so! And I'm not restricted to the A5 area to use the mouse and the mouse I own from before is a very nice and stable one!

I also use my new Wacom Bamboo to do most things. A small revolution to use the pen with all the vast possibilities with the Photoshop Brush parameters. So many nice things.

Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

I got a bad case of carpel tunnel before using the wacom. now i use pen for everything! i don't even have a mouse connected.

for dnb i like to have opacity set to pen pressure on. this way i can be as subtle as i need to without tinkering with opacity settings.

Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

pelle: Det tycker jag med! i agree! I'm trying to use this with anything that has to do with brushes and D/B ...And I'm learning myself to get use to the pen pressure...but I'm afraid to get to tough on the pressure as I see that the a5 area isn't all that solid when putting pressure onto the pen! I see small lines on the board after adding pressure...How tough is it really? It's not that I'm pushing the pen all I got with my two arms, but how much is 100%? heheh...tough question?

Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

i forgot to mention the tips go pretty fast, so you'll need to order extras, i have to look for the link from where i get them, think they come in a lot of 25. i go through them somewhat fast, i like to have new ones and replace them often, seems to work best for me. i'm very light handed but i think when i'm masking and brushing in overlay i tend to push pretty hard.

JACK: The pen pressure is the way to go i feel now, but now photoshop should come in and make a nice command for this pen pressure so we can all have the freedom to take it off/on...To use Pen Pressure on clone isn't doing it for atm...maybe I'm doing it wrong?

Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

KR: *looking at my pen* I see small fractions of loose plastic from the tip! So that as well is something to take into consideration...please do post the website...are they original?
