My Wacom  Cintiq Tablet Preferences.
Many of you have asked me to share my Wacom tablet preferences. In this blog I will share my preferences for my main Wacom,  Cintiq 24HD.

Wacom Cintiq.

I am using a Wacom Cintiq 24HD

I set up my preferences for easy access to the tools I use the most. These preferences help me to be more productive and speed up my workflow.

The Left Wheel:

I use the left wheel to Zoom In/Out my canvas. This option is very helpful in my painting and retouching workflow. With any selected/active tool I easily can zoom in/out my canvas without changing the active tool.

The Right Wheel:

I use the right wheel  to increase/decrease the brush size. This method of brush size adjusting  just perfect to my painting and masking workflow.

The Left ExpressKeys:

From the left to the right:
Modifier: Opt key
On Screen Keyboard (I use this option during my live stream or presentation to show my audience which key(s) I am currently pressing.

Scroll Up: Scroll the document up without changing the currently active tool
Scroll Down: Scroll the document down without changing currently active tool
Pan/Scroll: Scroll the document using Hand Tool without changing currently active tool (super helpful in my painting and masking workflow)

The Right ExpressKeys:

From the right to the left:

Back: Move  the active layer down without changing currently active tool
Forward: Move the active layer up without changing currently active tool
Brush Panel: Activating the brush panel
Setting: Opening the current Wacom Cintiq Settings

Right Click: Activating Right Click

Wacom Pen Setting:

I am using a Wacom Airbrush Pen with the setting I’ve attached below:

P.S. With the Wacom Airbrush Pen workflow make sure that you have checked the “Transfer” box and switched to “Stylus Wheel” Control from Control Drop Down menus. It will help you to use in maximum power of Airbrush Pen.
