All About Wacom Tablets

A Listmania! list by Alex Standiford
The list author says: "The Wacom Tablet is a pen and pad that turns your computer into a digital canvas. They're pressure sensitive. If you draw on the pad lightly, your digital brush stroke will become light, and transparent. If you press hard, your digital brush stroke will become dark, and opaque. This gives you A LOT of extra photo-editing power. Using the wacom tablet, you're ability to create layer masks gets so much easier because you have a natural feel, and control. If you happen to be into digital art, this is as good as it gets. Drawing on a tablet like you draw on paper makes using gimp a lot easier, and fun!

Here is a brief on what each feature of a Wacom Tablet does:

Pressure Sensitivity - Pressure sensitivity determines how sensitive the pressure of your tablet is. The higher this number, the more accurate your pressure will translate to various levels of opacity in Gimp.

Multi-Touch Input – The multi-touch input makes your wacom tablet double up as a multi-touch tool, adding swipe and touch functionality to your computer. This is similar to the popular trackpad on Macbooks.

Tilt Sensitivity – Tilt sensitivity determines the angle with which you are holding the wacom pen. This angle can change how the brush behaves in Gimp 2.8. Combined with pressure sensitivity, you can get some pretty crazy brush dynamics from a single stroke on your tablet."
