Graphic tablets are becoming compulsory for designers and graphic hobbyists of all ages and interests. A piece of hardware consisting of a drawing surface similar to a mouse pad and a pressure-sensitive pen, a graphic tablet is used to create drawings and illustrations from scratch, edit and manipulate existing photos, or record signatures electronically. This book teaches users to choose, install, customize, and optimize their hardware for their design needs. Also included is information on basic drawing techniques, creating illustrations and Web graphics, using shadows and depth, and creating weather and nature effects.
Author Biography: Iril C. Kolle has used many graphics tablets over the past 10 years as a professional designer and is currently writing tutorials for Wacom.
