Wacom's pressure-sensitive pens are recognized in the two dozen or more tools and brushes in Photoshop. From the Clone Stamp and Healing Brush, to Layer Masks and Adjustment Layers, you can dynamically adjust color temperature exposure, tone, contrast, and most other features, all by how lightly or firmly you press your pen to the tablet. Your creative edits and enhancements will look more natural and organic using a pressure-sensitive Wacom pen.
Check out this checklist of the most popular tasks in Photoshop that benefit from the pressure-sensitive pen:
- Retouching with the Clone Stamp tool: This tool takes advantage of pressure sensitivity in a way that is ideal for subtleness of element removal, for a natural, professional effect.
- Improve brush work: Using the Brush tool and a soft edge brush, use pressure sensitivity to subtly improve skin tones, brighten eyes, and soften features.
- Creating selections: Some of the toughest things to master in Photoshop, the selection tools are made more accurate as you paint your selection on the image.
- Compositing tasks: Natural and intuitive masking helps you create composite images that look natural and intentional, thanks to the pressure-sensitive brush and Layer Mask feature.
- Targeted adjustment layers: Make brush-on adjustments to an image and control the opacity of the effect based on how hard you press the pen to the tablet.
