How do you work on your photographs? Assuming you're using a program like Lightroom or Photoshop, there are times when you need to draw over your photograph or outline an area. Are you still using a mouse to do so?
If you are, perhaps it's time to think about a pen and tablet solution because these days, they are very sophisticated. The Wacom Intuos system begins with its Grip Pen, providing 2,048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity and a single gram of starting pressure.
A tilt recognition feature allows you to edit your images with the accuracy and precision of real brushes and pens (except you're still a photographer, don't forget!), whilst improved multi-touch gestures enable you to position and navigate around your images intuitively.
To make using the Intuos system easier, the tablets include customisable ExpressKeys and a Touch Ring control to streamline workflow and increase productivity. They mean you don't always have to revert to the computer keyboard, providing commonly used shortcuts and modifiers at your fingertips.
Express View, the Heads-Up-Display (HUD) feature, displays current settings on-screen and fades within a few seconds so as not to disrupt the creative process. Additionally, a personalised Radial Menu enables you to quickly access regularly used functions through a hierarchical menu display. All this can be set up and customised for the way you work, and it's easy to do.
The ambidextrous and ergonomic shape of the Intuos Pro is designed so you can work comfortably for long hours and the included wireless accessory kit means the tablet doesn't need to be physically attached to the computer, allowing you to work from up to 10 metres (30 feet) away.
The Intuos Pro comes in four Pen & Touch models – small , medium and large , as well as the clean and stylish Intuos Pro Special Edition (medium) with a silver frame. Once you've used a pen and tablet system, it's hard to imagine working on your images any other way. It will take a little while to completely acclimatise, but once you have, you will never look back.
