The left eye on our model looks too small and too far away from the nose, producing an unbalanced appearance. The Liquify filter can correct this problem too, as shown in this video.

Wacom Intuos 5 Pen Tablet - Multi-touch, Wireless, Heads-up Display Inspires Creative Expression

Wacom today announced the Intuos 5, the next generation lineup of pen tablets for professional photographers, designers and artists. The Intuos5, available today, comes in three models: Intuos5 touch Small ($229.95 USD), Medium ($349.95 USD) and Large ($469.95 USD).

Superior new features include multi-touch gesture support for intuitive input, an Express View display to facilitate an efficient workflow and wireless capabilities for convenience and comfort. Combined with Wacom’s renowned pen pressure and tilt sensitive pen, the state-of-the-art Intuos5 inspires creativity through an immersive experience.

With its ergonomic, ambidextrous design and bold new look, the slim-profile Intuos 5 allows creative professionals to work in complete comfort. The professional matte-black, soft-touch finish and illuminated accents reflect a modern and durable design. To meet the workflow and workspace needs of Wacom’s diverse professional customer base, Intuos5 models are being introduced in the Americas in three different sizes (small, medium and large) to accommodate creative preferences.

The addition of multi-touch to the Intuos5 provides a complementary input method to the pen that is natural to use in the creative process. One of the distinct benefits of multi-touch is its support of gestures to zoom, scroll, pan and rotate digital content, all while remaining focused on the creative process. Not only is the Intuos5 able to recognize standard Windows and Mac gestures, but customizable gestures can be created in supporting applications to make navigational input easier and stress free. For example, a customized gesture could be created to open a commonly used feature within Adobe® Photoshop.

Wacom continues to build customizable non-dominant hand controls into its professional tablets to help users streamline their workflow and be more productive. On the Intuos5, these include customizable ExpressKeys (six on small size and eight on both medium and large sizes) and one Touch Ring, with four-function toggle. These features allow users to place commonly used shortcuts and modifiers right at their fingertips, decreasing dependency on the computer keyboard while increasing productivity. The ambidextrous design allows right-handed and left-handed users to simply rotate the tablet 180 degrees for easy access to the ExpressKeys and Touch Ring.

To help users remember their application-specific ExpressKey settings, Intuos5 comes equipped with Express View, a new Heads-Up Display (HUD) feature that displays the current settings on the computer screen. Lightly resting a finger on any of the keys reveals the settings on-screen and fades within a few seconds so as not to disrupt the creative process.

For creative professionals, the Intuos5 Grip Pen remains the heart and soul of the tablet experience. The Intuos5 pen registers 2048 levels of pen pressure and up to 60 degrees of pen tilt, allowing the pen to emulate the same feel, response and effects derived from working with traditional tools such as paint brushes, markers and pens.

In addition, Intuos5 features Wacom’s proprietary Tip Sensor technology, which means that pressure-sensitive effects can start with an incredibly light touch. The Wacom pen expands the creative effects that can be achieved within software applications that support pressure and/or tilt sensitivity such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Painter, Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and many more. The Grip Pen also features a pressure-sensitive eraser and two side switches that can be customized for commands such as double-click and right-click.

With the Intuos5, Wacom broadens its offering for wireless connectivity. Now, all sizes of Intuos5 can be converted to a wireless tablet by installing the Wireless Accessory kit, sold separately on Wacom’s e-store. The kit includes a rechargeable battery that charges through USB, a RF module that plugs into the tablet and a receiver that plugs into a USB port on the computer.

The Intuos5, available today, comes in three models: Intuos5 touch Small ($229.95 USD), Medium ($349.95 USD) and Large ($469.95 USD).

Wacom Inkling Digital Sketch Pen - Draw On Sketchbook Or Paper

The Inkling digital sketch pen captures a digital likeness of your work while you sketch with its ballpoint tip on any sketchbook or standard piece of paper. Designed for rough concepting and creative brainstorming, the Inkling digital sketch pen is ideal for the front end of the creative process.

In addition to capturing your sketch, stroke by stroke, Inkling allows you to create layers in digital files while you sketch on paper. Digital files are transferred to your computer using the Inkling Sketch Manager software, and later, exported to applications such as Adobe®Photoshop and Illustrator. Files can also be opened with the included Inkling Sketch Manager software to edit, delete, add layers or change file formats.

TheInkling digital sketch pen is comprised of both hardware and software components. Hardware includes the pen and a wireless receiver that captures a likeness of the sketch and stores it digitally. The ballpoint pen uses Wacom pressure-sensing technology to detect how hard the pen is being pressed to the paper while sketching. These pressure variations will appear in the digital version of your drawing.

The receiver can be clipped to the edge of standard paper or sketchbooks and the position can be adjusted for left or right handed users to provide the receiver with an uninterrupted line of sight with the pen tip. When sketching is complete, the receiver is connected to the user’s computer via USB to transfer the digital files. Files are opened with the included Inkling Sketch Manager software to manage layers or change file formats before transferring them for adjustment and editing in other creative software applications.

The Inkling Sketch Manager software is designed to help you save time by quickly preparing your files for immediate email distribution or for further development in other creative software application, such as Adobe Photoshop. In the Inkling device, you can add, delete and combine layers and then save the files in the format you need, or export the files, with layers, directly to select applications.

From the Sketch Manager Preview screen, you can see all of your sketches that are in your “My Sketches” folder. From this screen, save or open any sketch, for further adjustment, or if you forgot to add layers while you were drawing, make these changes right in Inkling Sketch Manager.

Inkling Tutorials
When the installation of the Inkling Sketch Manager software (located on the flash memory of the Inkling receiver and not on a DVD) is complete, the Installer asks if you would like to view the Inkling tutorial. We suggest that you take this opportunity to view the tutorial to acquaint yourself with the complete functionality and recommended use of the product. You can also watch the Inkling Tutorial by selecting each chapter from the menu below:

Inkling FAQ
How long does it take to charge Inkling and what is the work time?
Inkling will fully charge within 3 hours, yielding a typical work time of up to 15 hours for the pen and up to 8 hours for the receiver.

How accurate are the sketches?
In general, sketches with Inkling will be accurate to within approximately +/- 0.1 inches (+/- 2.5 mm) in the main drawing area of an A4 page, and within (approximately +/- 0.2 inches (+/- 5.0 mm) at the edges of the page.

What are the drawing sizes that Inkling supports?
The maximum size area that Inkling can record is A4 paper, 8.27” x 11.69 inches (210 x 297 mm). Inkling can be attached to a larger sized paper, but it will only record a portion of the drawing that fits within this recording area. Inkling also does not record any part of a drawing that is within approximately 0.8 inches (2.0 cm) of the receiver.

What are the factors that affect the accuracy?
Inkling uses both ultrasonic and infrared technologies that require proper conditions to operate well. The main factors that can affect the accuracy of Inkling are obstruction of the line of sight between the pen sensors and the receiver. (the pen sensors are located in the pen tip area starting just below the widest point of the pen). Very high stroke speeds, direct sunlight on the receiver, the position of the receiver, ultrasonic noise, and other “white” noise at specific frequencies can also affect performance.

What is the resolution of Inkling sketches?
The resolution of the sketches is 600 dpi.
