How about Krita ? It's a nice free, open source painting program. I don't actually own a tablet, but this software felt like it was designed to be used with a tablet.

My options are: MyPaint http://mypaint.org/ and Krita https://krita.org/en/ MediBang Paint Pro https://medibangpaint.com/en/pc/ Dog Waffle. It has some oldy free versions: The page is ugly as hell. https://www.thebest3d.com/dogwaffle/download/index.html They do recognize the brush pressure. I can't make Gimp detect the pressure, but it is still an ...

I just continue holding the Wacom pen in my left hand while pressing the shortcuts. Sometimes I'll use my right hand instead It sounds like you all are overthinking and complicating something that isn't an issue. If you need to do lots of keyboard presses then put the Wacom down for a second just like if you were typing in a word processor you wouldn't ...

I use Autodesk Sketchbook which is now free, it has different types of brushes like for coloring skin, rocks, clouds, etc. But if you draw on the phone/tablet, you could use Ibispaint - there is a free app - which also has different types of brushes that you might have to buy or you could watch an AD to use them for free in 18 hours. (I don't buy them, I ...

On the old drivers, it was possible to set two "buttons" on the radial menu to mouse mode and pen mode. Now that this very use full feature is gone (you may ask WHY?) then the only other possibility is to change the buttons on the grip pen to mode toggle. Go to Wacom Tablet Properties and in the tool pane click on your grip pen. Then go down to the setting ...

You map it in the System Control Panel - globally or per application. The Wacom settings dialog may look different depending on device/operating system. This is the Mac CP, using a Wacom Intuous And here's Windows 10 showing a Wacom Bamboo Touch settings.

There are 2 types of callighraphic pen nibs: with wide and narrow nibs. In case of narrow nib you apply pressure as you write: https://www.jetpens.com/blog/calligraphy-pen-basics/pt/689 Anyway, if you tablet supports pressure pen, pressure option should be able in case of calligraphic brushes, check you tablet settings. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/...

I bought mine from a german retailer, and did not get anything in german at all. Software is in english, even the box was in english. Not sure what they could be referring to.

Good news: Adobe has recently added both of these in the custom keyboard shortcuts function, in the 2015.5 release, all the way at the bottom of the 'Tools' list. Wohooo!

If you open up your Wacom Tablet settings (on the Mac you go Apple menu ▶ System Preferences and then choose the “Wacom Tablet” item) then go to the “Pen” pane and tap “Options …” and you will see a setting called “Handedness” and obviously you want to set it to “Left.” Other than that, the Wacom Tablet works exactly the same for you as for a right-handed ...

There's is no difference from Photoshops view. Technically its a similar albeit differently shaped nib, that is always attached to eraser. The different shape has different physics, but other then that form software's point of view its the same. The tablet user may not have a second hand free, for example because they have leaned back and the keyboard is ...

We had a non-pro Intuos M for less than a year now and were very happy with its ease of use, and the precision by which we could enter data with the pressure-sensitive pen. It is a very good value for money digitizing tablet for the occasional or semi-professional usage. We do recommend it. but... After less than a year we still made the switch to the Pro ...

I always assumed it was for familiarity + perhaps to further enable people to use the tablet without a keyboard. When you first try out a drawing tablet, it seems like it makes sense to have it, but I've personally never used it. It's so tedious Wacom even has an option to set one of the stylus buttons as the eraser. I've found that to lag a bit, so I ...

Art brushes..... no. Art brushes (like pattern brushes) use the base path as a spine to just lie the art along. Art brushes don't have any rotation dynamics at all, so there's nothing for the tablet to interact with. The brush must have rotation possibilities for any of the tablet features to alter them. As far as I'm aware, only Scatter, Bristle, and ...

I know this is an old post, but since it got no answer I thought I should pitch in. I have a Wacom Intuos 5 (Pro) and 3 pens. I also got a Lenovo Yoga for work, and its pen is made by Wacom. The first thing I tried was to use one of my Wacom pens with the Yoga -- It did not work. I also got a Bamboo Touch tablet that comes with the pen you mentioned as a ...

Sadly, Adobe doesn't support those buttons and even the Actions function don't record them. However i had a similar problem once and with AutoHotKey software i could do right about everything in Photoshop, but not only. By using this software you can record a mouseclick at a given position - so, create a macro that snaps your cursor to that location and ...

I think you can play around with this configuration panel to remove these strange curves. BUT the main solution that I always use is to make line/curve shorter like the example shown below: You can see clearly the difference between the 2 trees leaf.

The cheaper Draw tablet does not have touch functions. The difference between the other 3 models is only the colors offered and the bundled software. The actual functionality of the tablet is the same.

You can view specifications at Wacom's web site. Look at pressure levels, active area, and those sorts of things. No need to repeat them here. The ones with "touch" in their name also have touch capabilities (ability to use your fingers). Adobe tests it's software with Wacom tablets. Yes, it works in all of them. There may be some limitations based on ...

For what you need to do, any kind of graphic tablet should be just fine: don't need to bother looking for pressure levels and other specific functions. The Wacom Intuos has a dotted drawing area that can help when drawing straight lines and diagrams or if you want to do a decent job looking at the tablet instead of the screen. I'd go with this, or with the ...

It is not perfect way, but better than nothing. I use wacom driver 6.3.11, the last one with mouse/pen mode in radial menu, and the first one with mouse height setting. So there is no any significant differences between 6.3.11 and 6.3.32 for me.

Outside of Gimp, you can likely set the table to "screen" or "window" mode. However: you have to wonder how to change tool options without dropping the pencil and temporarily switch to the mouse, or figure out a hundred single-handed keyboard shortcuts. Gimp tools are associated to "pointers": there is a "core pointer" which is your mouse, your touchpad,...

Just to expand/rephrase the answer @billy_kerr gave: When you click the paintbucket tool inside an area, it has no idea that the cloud you drew with the paintbrush tool is a line. Everything in your image is just tiny squares (pixels) and when it spreads out and meets each pixel it has to decide if it's something it should fill in or avoid, ( basically ...

I use a XP-Pen Artist 16 Pro Digital Tablet with screen and I've had experience with an Ugee HK1560 and both of them are great tablets which give you the "drawing directly on the screen" experience for way less than Wacom. One thing to keep in mind though is that no Wacom alternative offers multi-touch (finger touch input) on their tablets, so if that's ...

So, I started looking for graphic tablets. I found that Wacom has the best graphic tablets available but I am really confused about getting one. This is already fallacious; because it's a question based on false premises. Wacom does not have the best graphics tablets available, it is just the most popular of many tablet brands. Which specific tablet suits ...

Change Opacity Jitter Control to Fade. Then you need to play with the Fade and Minimum Number. Personally I'd start with a 65 fade, 35 min. That should work for you.

It doesn't really matter. The Wacom Intuos preferences have an option to keep the tablet proportional or to stretch to fill the available area, use only a single monitor if you have multiple monitors connected, or even to only use a portion of a monitor. In short, the Intuos preferences are designed to allow you to set things to a work area that is ...

Depends on your drawing style. Do a quick test. Grab a sheet of paper. Put it on the desk you normally work. Draw happy, and I mean happy. If you find drawing big strokes, with all your arm, you probably will be more confident with a large one. If you find yourself only using your wrist, or even your fingers only, a small one. The second test is the ...

iOS features are iOS features and not part of Photoshop. I don't know of any similar feature in any Adobe app. (Maybe it exists, I'm just an unaware.) You can paint straight lines easily in Photoshop though, at any angle, but it's not angle-precise..... Grab a brush. Hold the Shift down. Click once where you want the line to start... lift up (still ...
