Working on TabletPC with Photoshop

by corabl / August 7, 2010 4:39 AM PDT

Hi! I'm planning to buy a TabletPC, not an iPad, not a simple tablet -but a full featured Tablet that can run Photoshop.
Do you know any good resources for tuning Photoshop for this kind of task? I mean technically.

Thank you

some useful resources

Drawing on a tablet could be a pain, because you don't use the keyboard. One of the tools to ease it is
Keyboard macro maker Autohotkey
and the other is Photoshop color wheel MagicPicker. The first one is to tune your lovely shortcuts, that you usually use to work with table buttons and the other one is to make color picking the real help for your work.

You need also create your personal workspace with panels you like to avoid clutter on the screen.

The other cool resource is for brushes, actions and other stuff like that.

It can take months to tune Photoshop up, but it's worth it Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
