Creative software bundles for Wacom

Designed with creatives in mind and used by top professionals in a variety of creative fields, Wacom works with a wide variety of software partners to provide the best experience possible for illustrators, photographers, video editors, game designers, and beyond.

Wacom pen display and Kami

Wacom + Kami

Kami is a fantastic tool for teaching, and it’s made even better with Wacom drawing tablets. Static, inflexible worksheets become collaborative and interactive resources. With Kami, it’s a breeze to create instructional videos, use a digital whiteboard during instruction, or annotate student work with rich feedback — including written, audio, and video feedback — and to save time when grading student work.

Wacom pen tablet and Pear Deck

Wacom + Pear Deck

Pear Deck allows teachers to take existing content in slide decks and add interactivity — such as open response or multiple choice questions, draggable icons, or drawing options. In addition to this interactive content, a teacher can also share a link to a website for a video, research, or Google Form. It even empowers teachers to monitor student work in real time.

Wacom pen tablet and Collaboard

Wacom + Collaboard

Collaboard is a digital whiteboard software — meaning you get all the familiar benefits of handwriting on a standard whiteboard with the added advantage of working digitally. With Collaboard you can save, share, and collate your whiteboard presentations. It gives you unlimited whiteboard space, so nothing’s ever lost. And you don’t have to write “DON’T ERASE” in the corner.

Wacom pen display and Explain Everything software

Wacom + Explain Everything

Explain Everything is a full-featured digital whiteboard that allows recording of video, hosting collaborative sessions, creating resources and revision materials, and seamlessly utilizing voice recordings.

A magical midnight forest... 🌲🌙🦉🎨🖌️⁣
That's what @yingshiart was conjuring in this amazing piece #MadeWithWacom. Tayler loves using color to evoke emotion and fullness in her paintings, and liberally uses adjustment layers, filters, and gradient maps. She trusts the creative process and lets go, allowing the subconscious to put one hand on the wheel instead of micromanaging every detail. ⁣
Do you trust your creative process? ⁣
