Optimizing Brush Tools with a Wacom Tablet in Photoshop® CC®


Working with brushes when using a Wacom Tablet opens up several more options than when using a mouse. You can enable pen pressure sensitivity, change your brush attributes by changing the angle of the pen, adjust hardness, color, jitter and size. Jason Hoppe will uncover all of the opportunities you have with custom brushes and control in this in-depth course. He'll show how to paint with bristle brushes in way that mimics the bristles and “paper” feeling. Jason will even work with charcoal, pencil with the amazing features of erodible tips.

  • Great class for anyone looking to learn all the ins and outs of the Brush tool. Perfect if you're using a tablet already. If you're considering buying a tablet, you will gain a better understanding of which one you should get for your needs and what you can accomplish with it.
  • I was not able to attend the free live session so I just bought the class and I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed in it. I expected there to be more focus on using the Wacom tablet with brushes. Something more than watching Jason make squiggles on the page. I would like to have seen a start to finish (or close) to accomplishing some goal with a picture. Or even an identified goal of small things on several pictures. Some thing practical. believe I have gleaned more information from free videos available on the web. I likely will not buy any classes in future that I cannot preview in some fashion.
  • Love is training style but you should remove the Wacom from the Title its misleading
