Betty LaRue Posted July 17, 2015 Share Posted July 17, 2015 I'm trying to remember the head injury that caused me to order the Medium Wacom Pen and Touch the other day, due to arrive tomorrow. I bought a Wacom tablet, one of the bigger ones years ago and never could master it. I almost threw it in the trash this morning, but decided to stick it in a chest. It's old enough I'm not sure it would work with the computers out now. Geoff Kidd tried to help me learn that one, but without someone over my shoulder, I just didn't get it. I've always learned best by doing, by being shown while I'm hands on. (Being the non-techie I am). I realize I don't have anyone to perform that function, and I've looked at the community college offerings and they don't have any classes for what I need. Everything they offer is for Windows, anyway, and I'm on a Mac. So why is someone like me planning on trying again? I really want to try to design some things, get into a different area. I'm artistic by nature, so if I can conquer the technical aspect, I think I just may enjoy this. I plan on dedicating a lot of time to trying to learn it. I've been watching videos today on how to set the pen and other settings up, (taking notes) but not sure which ones are the best to choose for what I want to do. I may try some drawing. I may try to add effects to photographs. I am open to suggestions for anyone who wants to put their two cents (or whatever currency you use, lol) in. I'd be interested to know what kind of work you produce with a tablet, or if you only use it for traditional photo editing. Is there a setting that while I'm using the pen, then get into an area I can't figure out how to get out of, that I can still use the mouse to do it? That will ease me into the learning process. Nothing is more discouraging than spending a lot of time on something and hitting a roadblock I can't figure out, and losing my work.
