I didn't know that, I always forced myself to work with 33% zoom because I though it would increase my hand-eye coordination. Maybe is this the reason that make me improve in one week at the start and then after one year I'm still not use with graphic tablet (even if I can navigate easily on the web with the pen)
Some people learn best by jumping in and experimenting. Others, like me, need a thorough grounding before we can get going confidently. This is absolutely essential for people like me, and I can't stress enough how grateful I am for this kind of work.
I feel a bit of an idiot for asking this but here goes: is Photoshop included with Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch? I'm prettry sure it does but I'm not sure how to set up the software, maybe I missed a step. Better check the box contents again... And I can't ask anyone in the family for help since they don't deal with computers.
I think it does! Go check out wacoms official page, the search for the tablets and there you should find it. Actually, since I feel kind today, I'll do that for you: [link] There! I'm planning on buying a tablet, so I did allot of investigation and comparassion of products, so if you have a tight budget, I recomend Bamboo, they have good quality and are really affordable, but if you can really pay for something expensive, go get an intuos, but if really have allot of money go get a cintiq xD I'm getting a Bamboo capture Have a nice day.
Hey, very good tutorial! But I was wondering one thing... well, how much difference does a good tablet actually make? At the moment I am using a very, very, old Wacom Volito I got from my dad, and he suggested that getting a better tablet might help me create the art I have in mind. Since, however it works a lot better than using the mouse, it still doesn't feel good or natural to me... If this DOES matter, what would you suggest? I am not quite rich or something (duh, I am only a teen, I don't even work yet...), so I probably could never get the money for a Cintiq... but I am thinking about a Bamboo, and eventually a Intuos3/4 (4 is the newest, if I remember correctly...)
But does it make a lot of difference to have a good tablet? I'd love to hear your opinion on this, especially since even a "cheap" Wacom Bamboo is rather expensive for someone with my amount of money. (tough I don't have to pay electricity, bills that sort of stuff... yay! )
