Electronic pen handy for quick creation mode selection mask painting. This example shows a mask created by a few strokes of the pen Bamboo, allow you to cut a cloud on the photograph
A further advantage of the graphics tablet to a mouse’s ability to respond to the pressing force, which allows to change the stroke thickness directly in the process. A great advantage of the tablet in the presence of programmable keys that can replace the keyboard when working with images.
