    Best use of Wacom tablets?

    I had these tablets and I have had students use them in Photoshop projects but they seem awkward compared to using a mouse. I understand these tools are primarily for drawing. Can they have any use in Photoshop in specific applications?

    color tools

    Quick question: What can be the problem when the color tools don't work? I've already checked to see if it's in a color mode and it set on RGB and 8 bits. I've tried Color Balance and Hue and Saturation with no luck and they are rasterized. Thanks pslane

    Working Chrome Based Browser

    This is a bit of an odd request but this is the situation: I like to develop 'panels' for Photoshop. Since CC 2014 Adobe have ditched Flash in favour of HTML5, a genuine good move. Being HTML5 based, 'panels' could then be 'de-bugged' using a 'chrome' based browser. Googles' Chrome browser...
