Brush settings

Adjusting the brush settings of your Wacom tablet in Photoshop

August 22, 2019

Photographer and Photoshop expert, RC Concepcion, shares some fundamental tips on optimizing your brushes for photo retouching. The finesse of the brush is very important, so pen pressure sensitivity is key. Instead of adjusting opacity or flow each time, RC shows you how to take advantage of the pressure sensitivity of the Wacom Intuos Pro pen to get the level of refinement you need to effortlessly get great results.
