Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro and Adobe Fresco Paint a Pretty Picture


The new digital drawing must-have: MobileStudio Pro 16 combined with the newly launched PC version of Adobe’s painting and drawing application, Fresco. The artists we’ve talked to are loving Fresco’s watercolor capabilities and all of the ways the Wacom Pro Pen 2 technology enhances the Fresco experience.

Wacom and Adobe share a long history of cooperation in enabling digital creativity. Wacom’s renowned pressure-sensitive and battery-free digital pen products and Adobe’s software applications have continuously innovated and improved together, enabling countless artists and designers to realize their creative visions. When a Wacom pen tablet or creative pen display is connected to many Adobe products, features like pen pressure, pen-tilt sensitivity and even pen rotation are automatically enabled – features that mouse users would normally get to experience when using Adobe products.

Because of recent cooperative efforts between Wacom and Adobe, the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16, featuring the company’s advanced Pro Pen 2, is one of the first PC’s to be fully enabled to work with Fresco. When used in combination with the MobileStudio Pro, artists and designers will be treated to an amazingly natural, fluid and productive creative experience. Whether working on the road or in the studio, MobileStudio Pro has the onboard computing and graphics power to run not only Fresco, but virtually all Creative Cloud apps. Sketches or illustrations done in Fresco can immediately be brought into Photoshop or other Adobe creative applications for additional editing, development, completion and distribution.

Since we are now into the season of giving, Wacom’s participation at Adobe MAX is loosely coinciding with the introduction of several new Adobe software bundle offers for the holiday gifting season. With the purchase of a new Wacom Intuos Pro or Cintiq Pro, purchasers will have the choice of either a 2-month subscription to the Creative Cloud Photography Plan or Premier Rush® (available with registration and download.) The Photography Plan includes Lightroom®, Photoshop and 20GB’s of storage, while Premier Rush, Adobe’s new all-in-one video editing tool, is a wonderful choice for the YouTube video generation.
