Photo manipulation tutorial and how to set up a Wacom Intuos Pro by Nemanja Sekulic

November 28, 2018

For this fun Photoshop and photo manipulation tutorial, we collaborated with photographer and 3D/ digital artist Nemanja Sekulic. Nemanja has been using Wacom for his work since 2007 and he is a professional in his field, so we hope his expertise and tips will help you.
In this video, Nemanja explains – among other things – why the Wacom Intuos Pro medium is his graphics tablet of choice, how he sets up the Wacom driver and the tablet Express-Keys for use in Photoshop, and he explains his photo manipulation process from start to finish, this includes the original photoshoot from a studio, photo editing, and Photoshop tips.

Practice, experiment and have fun! Because practice is important, but having fun while practicing is even more important. – Nemanja Sekulic

When our inner critic arises, it’s difficult not hear it 😭

Sometimes our internal voice criticizes, judges and makes us doubt of our work telling us that we are not good enough. It happens to all of us!

But it’s all in our heads, trust the progress you’ve made so far and don’t give up!

Have you ever felt this way? 👇
