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
