How to use a Graphic Tablet for Post Processing

How to use a Graphic Tablet for Post Processing by Train To Create & Wacom has been created to show those of you with a graphic tablet the optimum way to set it up for use with photoshop and to show those of you thinking of purchasing one, how and why they are the best thing to use when photo editing.

Train to Create will show you the best way to set up your tablet for photographic retouching and then walk you through a fashion portrait retouch from start to finish using Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. The image and their workflow will be projected onto a large 180cm screen and you will be able to follow it on your own laptop/pc/mac using your own tablet. For those of you who don’t own an Wacom Intuos Pro tablet yet there will be provided one for you to use during the workshop for free (Any Wacom supplied tablet may be purchased at the end of the day at a discount).

You will need to bring your own laptop, PC, or Mac running with Photoshop version CS5 or above. If you don’t own Photoshop yet Train to Create will supply you with a link where you can download a full trial version before the event.

Lunch will be supplied and there will be free tea, coffee and water on the day. Bring your own soft drinks which can be kept in a fridge at the Windmill.
