Wacom software compatibility
Wacom works with your software
Wacom products are designed to enable your creativity and productivity, no matter what software tools you use in your day-to-day workflow. Our pen tablets and displays are compatible with virtually every software program out there — anywhere you can use a mouse, you could be using a Wacom pen.
Wacom + Corel
Create your next great piece of art with Corel Painter, Corel Painter Essentials, or Corel Aftershot Pro — and your Wacom product. Corel products are optimized for Wacom pens, enabling artists of all levels to experience an unforgettable painting experience with full pressure sensitivity and the highest level of precision. A premium trial of Corel Aftershot and Painter comes with every purchase of Wacom Intuos.
Wacom + Boris FX
The Boris FX Suite allows for Hollywood-grade video post-production and photo edits – from adjusting color levels to adding lightning to a scene. Boris FX video products are a combination of standalone applications and plugins for tools like Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, and Avid Media Composer. A premium 12-month trial of Boris FX Optics, a photo special effects app, is included with any Wacom Intuos purchase.
Wacom + Clip Studio Paint
Whether you’re team tablet or team display, any Wacom product will provide the perfect canvas for Clip Studio Paint, a premium application for creating comics, manga, anime, animation, and more. Clip Studio Paint Pro trials are included with a purchase of Wacom One or Wacom Intuos, and a Clip Studio Paint EX trial is included with Wacom Cintiq.
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. Even better, those partnerships mean we’re able to provide extended free software trials of some of the best creative software available to anyone that registers a Wacom product.
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 + 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 + 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 + 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.
Software bundles for educators at all levels
Today’s teachers are embracing technology — and Wacom drawing tablets are at the cutting edge of empowering teachers to create more exciting, engaging classroom experiences than ever before. Whether through real-time, collaborative annotation, live or recorded demonstrations of concepts, formulas, or diagrams, or making captivating slide deck presentations, Wacom tablets are a modern teacher’s best friend — especially when bundled with powerful education software like Pear Deck, Kami, Collaboard, and Explain Everything.
