Wacom Introduces Inkling


Wacom has just recently introduced it’s latest innovation, Inkling. Inkling is a pen that can capture a digital likeness of your sketches as you work on paper. It bridges that gap of having to painstakingly scan in drawings, then spending hours breaking them apart into different layers in order to manipulate them in Photoshop, Illustrator, or any other program. It seems to be fairly intuitive giving you the option to import your layers directly into Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro, and Sketchbook Designer. Along with the import features it can export your files in JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG & PDF for use in other programs. I took some time to watch the videos and while it does look a little bit bulky to carry around in your pocket, it seems to be a potentially fantastic tool for those folks that love to use their sketches in their work. If you decide to take the plunge for the Inkling then let us know what you think!
