I would really like to view this tutorial but I only see a little introductory text on this page. Has the video been removed? The tutorial being spoken of here is missing.

Please advise.

Which model would you suggest for photographers......   I mainly do portraits.

Hi Edward -

I like the larger format for detailed portrait work:

The large Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet from Wacom is designed to accommodate artistic styles that require a full range of motion and for creative professionals who work in large formats. Many users will also be able to utilize the large form factor when working on multiple displays.

With precision and control, you'll be able to take full advantage of your professional software. The Intuos Professional Pen and Touch tablet has 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity on the pen tip and the eraser. You can edit your creative work with the accuracy and precision of traditional brushes and pens. Designed for both right and left-handed use, you can also enjoy the freedom of working unattached from your computer by using the Wacom wireless kit included with your tablet.

Six customizable ExpressKeys and Touch Ring give you quick access to your favorite shortcuts while on-screen Radial menu and Express View heads-up display help you stay focused on your work. The ExpressKeys are also customizable and can have application-specific shortcuts. Connecting to your PC or Mac through a single USB connection, Intuos Professional Pen and Touch tablet will have you creating in no time.

what size tablet do I need for Lightroom and Photoshop?

I often recommend the medium for photo work. I find it to be the most comfortable to use.



Best vid ever....  Sooooo good

I just finished watching this vid and it took me 4 1/2 hours, and many pages of notes, to get all the info that is given.

I recently bought my Wacom and have been search out Youtube vids to learn how to use and understand it before starting to draw.

This one is the best so far that I've seen.

Keep up this good work, you guys.


Best Regards...
