  • Wacom 90 Degrees / Portrait?

    So, I just started using a Wacom, Cintiq 13. I have my screen setup as an extended desktop (MAC) on 90 degrees, and have started experiencing some serious lag in Lightroom, even though I recalibrated the pen for the degree change. Is it LR6, the Wacom at 90, or something else causing the issue? I have turned the tablet back to the standard landscape and the lag has lessened (a lot) but is still there, and when I turn it back to 90 the issue comes back like a dirty demon; I would say about 30min or so while working / painting masks does it really become a total pain. Of course I could not use portrait, but I just wanted some clarity on the issue. I've always wondered why such a display option exists, and now that I have found a use for it & really like it, it would be super awesome if things worked out better. Thoughts?

    Have you tried any other programs to see if they also slow down?

      Lightroom isn't really what the tablets are for. You can make masks in lightroom, sure, but it's so much easier in PS. But that doesn't explain the lag. Try working in something like PS and see if it slows down?

        Yep, Lightroom was the problem. I used Photoshop and AKVIS SmartMask for about two hours in portrait mode and everything functioned perfectly, no lag at all. I just love the ease of creating makeup and skin toning brush presets in LR, but meh, gurrr Adobe. That was simple. Thanks.

          My pen doesn't seem to work very well in Lightroom...especially when trying to draw a graduated filter...the slightest movement of the stylus makes a HUGE movement in Lightroom.

          Anybody have a fix for this?

          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.

          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?

          Wacom questions
          by dianajenna
          I've not used a Wacom tablet, but am considering getting one. My questions:

          1. Does the finished product (restored photo) actually come out looking better if you use a tablet instead of clicking on screen with your mouse? Or, is the reason people like the Wacom because it cuts down...

          Wacom Intuos 3 - customizing buttons
          by texas_ashley
          This has probably been answered a thousand times, but I can't find a direct answer, so any help would be appreciated.

          A friend of mine customized his buttons and sliders to photoshop tools. I cannot figure out how to do it to photoshop buttons specifically. Any ideas!?
