Overview

The Wacom Intuos 4 tablet features Wacom's new pen tip sensor technology and 2,048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, the pen captures the most subtle nuances of pressure, allowing you to dynamically adjust exposure, brush size, opacity and more. User-defined ExpressKeys activate frequently used shortcuts and modifiers, while the accompanying, illuminated ExpressKey displays on the medium, large and extra large models, provide a constant reminder of each key¿s function. The finger-sensitive Touch Ring quickly controls up to 4 different functions such as canvas rotation, zoom, scroll, brush size and more.

Programs

The Wacom Intuos 4 tablet can be used as a peripheral, but only specific programs will benefit from the touch sensitivity. Fire alpaca and Krita are both free programs that can take advantage of this.
