  1. Corey - I enjoy and learn a lot from your tutorials. My question on the Wacom tablet concerns the pen pressure settings.When you have the 'variable' pen-pressure settings active, how can you easily switch them for full constant pressure. (i.e. when applying a brush to a mask or channel, how do you get the full white, or black, brush to make adjustments?? I keep getting grays and have to continually go over the parts of the image that I want to change???

  2. Hi Cory I loved the Wacom Intuos 4 tutorial. Unfortunately I only had the option of buying the new Intuos 5. Apart from the LCD express key labels & touch functionality, is there any difference? Tam

  3. Just got my first Wacom 5 Medium tablet. When will you update the training? This training is much better than the training on the Wacom site. Thanks for getting me started.

  4. I am an amateur photographer and have been using Lightroom and Photoshop for about a year and a half. I am interested in moving to a tablet since the more I use the Adobe products the more frustrating it can be to use the mouse. Since I am a hobbyist and not a professional which size table would you recommend? I have a laptop and a desktop with a 23" monitor. Thanks for your advice.
