  • re-introduction and helpful hint

    Hi all, I'm baaaaack!

    I was a member here in the early days and learned a lot from you folks. It's nice to see some of those members still here and still helping newcomers.

    I joined when Photoshop 6 was big news (how long ago was that ) but I changed computers, couldn't afford to upgrade, other interests occupied my attention etc. but now I'm looking for a hobby that doesn't take up space yet provides hours of enjoyment.

    ....and with the $9.99/month special on Creative Cloud, how could I resist.

    Helpful hint? Want to draw while you watch tv in your easy chair and have no room for your Wacom tablet?

    Use a stylus that would work on your iPad!

    Just hold down the "button" on the trackpad while drawing with the stylus. Works well for casual drawing, but probably not good for production work. I can see doing this while waiting in an airport of while having a latte down at Starbucks.

    Hey Guys,

    I've been working with a brand spanking new Wacom Cintiq 24 inch screen/tablet thingy for the last week and I'm really enjoying it.

    Just wondering if anyone else is using these things as well, and if there's some nice tips and tricks for these things?

    Aiptek vs. Wacom
    by themanda
    Hello all! Thought I could finally contribute something useful to these great forums.

    I've been exclusively using a Wacom Graphire II at work for the last two years. I love it, and find it extremely easy to use even with the limited surface area allowed.

    Do Tablets Wear Out?
    by Doug Nelson
    I've had my trusty Intuos 2 for something like 10 years now. I use it constantly, with its dedicated mouse even for things like web browsing.

    A few months back I noticed things like it was doubleclicking without me asking it to. I tried uninstall/reinstall on the driver, trying a different...

    How long did it take you to master your Wacom tablet?

    Did you have advice on what settings work best?

    Did you attend a course or seminar of any sort?
