Wacom and Adobe collaboration provides innovative tools for digital artists

TOKYO AND PORTLAND This year at Adobe MAX, the spotlight was shone on the creative possibilities of using the new Adobe Fresco painting and drawing application for PC on WacomCommentit is new MobileStudio Pro 16. Intuitive and natural pen-centric capabilities in cloud-based creative software applications, including Photoshop, which will be included in a limited-time photo bundle with select Wacom professional products during the 2019 holiday season, have also been demonstrated.

Wacom and Adobe have worked in tandem to enhance and innovate, encourage and enable digital creativity by providing artists and designers with new creative tools. The Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16, featuring the Pro Pen 2, is one of the first PCs to be fully compatible with Fresco, Adobe’s new painting and drawing application. When used in combination, users experience a natural, fluid, and productive creative experience. The workstation has the computing and graphics power to run virtually any creative cloud application. Sketches or illustrations made in Fresco can be immediately imported into Photoshop or other Adobe creative applications for further editing, development, fulfillment, and distribution.

“Wacom and Adobe have combined their respective hardware and software expertise to develop natural-touch media where every digital pen or brushstroke feels like it was created directly on paper,” commented Faik Karaoglu, vice president Executive of the Wacom Branded Creative Products Group. “Additionally, Adobe Fresco is the perfect application for mobile or desktop use with Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro, as Fresco offers a powerful yet easy-to-use feature set for 2D concept design and illustration.”

Wacom’s participation in Adobe MAX loosely coincided with the introduction of several new Adobe software bundles for the holiday season. With the purchase of a new Wacom Intuos Pro or Cintiq Pro, buyers will have the choice of a 2-month subscription to the Creative Cloud or Premiere Rush photography plan (available with registration and download.) The photography plan includes Lightroom, Photoshop and 20 GB of storage, while Premiere Rush, Adobe’s new all-in-one video editing tool, is optimized for generating YouTube videos.
