For close to 10 years, Wacom's 22HD Cintiq served me well until it finally reached the end of its life span. I debated if I should purchase a newer model or try something different. I chose to try something different and quickly realized it was a mistake. As luck would have it, Wacom reached out to Photofocus and offered a new Cintiq 16 for a review.

You might have seen an article by Bloomberg that came out earlier this month, discussing Adobe's plans to create a full-fledged version of Photoshop for iPad tablets. This won't be like Adobe's current Photoshop app offerings for iOS — instead, you'll be able to do everything you can do in the desktop version of Photoshop CC, right on your iPad. It's supposed to be revealed at the Adobe MAX Conference this October, with a release date sometime in 2019. But this is really just the continuum of Adobe adapting for smaller, touch-screen … [Read more...] about Photoshop CC is coming to iPad in 2019
Wacom announced their new range of entry level Intuos Pen & Touch tablets consisting of four models: Intuos Draw, Intuos Art, Intuos Photo and Intuos Comic.

At Photoshop World I picked up the just released Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. For me, I prefer the medium-sized one as it is comfortable to hold while using, but large enough to work on. The tablet has seen some improvements over past models (particularly in areas of ergonomics and wireless use). Do You Need a Tablet? A lot of users wonder what the heck they'd need a tablet for. Many mistakenly think it's only about drawing and illustration. The tablet is more of a control surface however and one that reduces wear and tear on your body. For me … [Read more...] about New Wacom Intuos Pro Tablets — Mini Review
