Wacom and Adobe work together on new Creative Collaboration

News | 08.12.2019

Wacom and Adobe share a long history of cooperation in enabling digital creativity. Wacom’s renowned pressure-sensitive and battery-free digital pen products and Adobe’s software applications have continuously innovated and improved together, enabling countless artists and designers to realize their creative visions. When a Wacom pen tablet or creative pen display is connected to many Adobe products, features like pen pressure, pen-tilt sensitivity and even pen rotation are automatically enabled – features that mouse users would normally get to experience when using Adobe products.

Because of recent cooperative efforts between Wacom and Adobe, the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16, featuring the company’s advanced Pro Pen 2, is one of the first PC’s to be fully enabled to work with Fresco, Adobe’s new painting and drawing application.

When used in combination with the MobileStudio Pro, artists and designers will be treated to an amazingly natural, fluid and productive creative experience. Whether working on the road or in the studio, MobileStudio Pro has the onboard computing and graphics power to run not only Fresco, but virtually all Creative Cloud apps. Sketches or illustrations done in Fresco can immediately be brought into Photoshop or other Adobe creative applications for additional editing, development, completion and distribution.

Wacom and Adobe have combined their respective hardware and software expertise to develop natural-feeling media where every digital pen or brush stroke feels and looks as though it was created directly on paper. Additionally, Adobe Fresco is the perfect application for Mobile or desktop use with Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro as Fresco offers a powerful, but easy-to-use feature set for illustration and 2D concept design.
