What benefits does having a touch sensitive Wacom tablet give you?
Touch screens are becoming more and more popular in all sorts of devices.
Touch sensitive Wacom tablets have a number of benefits, making them the perfect choice for people who want to take their work on the go or prefer using touch instead of inputting commands with a stylus pen.
Like an iPad, the touch function can be used to swipe, scroll and pinch the screen to zoom in on content. It can also be used for quick functions such as undoing an action or copy-pasting text from one document into another.
They offer quick access to move around your image, quickly zoom in and out, select colours and tools and rotate the screen. Rather leaving the drawing tablet and moving to the keyboard, you can simply tap on the screen to select what you want.
Touch screens are also perfect for those who want to use their Wacom tablet as a touch pad device when they’re connected using the USB cable – and this is even more convenient if you have an external monitor.
Touch sensitive Wacom tablets are compatible with a number of programs including Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter Lite and Autodesk Sketchbook Express. Just make sure you have the Wacom drivers installed for your device, or touch can be a little hit-and-miss.
What does “multi-touch” mean on a Wacom tablet?
Multi-touch means that Wacom tablet is able to detect touch from two or more fingers.
This will allow you to zoom in or out, rotate the picture and more. Without multi-touch the Wacom tablet is limited to one finger touch only, just allowing you to pan around your document.
Wacom’s Intuos Pro models are designed for use with pen, pencil or your finger as you can either draw directly on the screen using pressure sensitive technology or tap on the surface of the screen to work through menus and files
