I received a Wacom Tablet several years ago, from my husband. I enjoy using it to add personalization to cards, digital scrapbook pages, and so much more. When I learned that the Wacom Tablet was going multi-touch, I was excited.
The Bamboo works with with Adobe® Photoshop® Elements and many other photo software applications for having fun with your digital images and creating your own masterpieces. The first in a series of exclusive releases with Wacom, Anime Studio customers can now use finger gestures on Bamboo Multi-Touch tablets with a special upgrade to Anime Studio 8.1. The Anime Studio 8.1 update includes over 30 new features, performance enhancements and integrated user feedback.
Because it features multi-touch input, you can use the tablet to zoom in on your photos, scroll through albums, and cruise your computer, using the familiar gestures of a mobile device. Bamboo Captures includes two great software titles in the box: Adobe® Photoshop® Elements and Autodesk® SketchBook Express

As I mentioned, I’ve used my Bamboo Tablet to personalize projects. I had never used Anime Studio before. The image at left is my second (lame) attempt at creating in Anime Studio 8.1. I accidently closed my first attempt and lost the edits. I know. I need to practice. I hope to eventually create an uber cool new avatar for myself. As you can see, I have a LONG way to go. Since that ISN’T a beautiful example of what the the image at right, which I did in Photoshop with the Bamboo Capture. I’m no real artist, but I love what the Wacom tablets are capable of.
Have you worked in Anime Studio before? Have any tips and tricks I should know about?
