To work with Inkling we must place the sensor or receiver on the top of our notebook or sheet where we go to draw. One of the details that you have to keep in mind is that you must make your drawings for less 2 or 3 centimeters (1 inch) below this sensor, since all the strokes that are very close to it are no catches and will be impossible See them once you pass them a digital format.
It is great that he respects each one of his strokes and the editable ones, being able to adjust or eliminate each of them individually. You can even work in layers, just with a single click of the buttons of the inkling sensor every time you want to draw on a new one.
Like any of the Wacom products, which is a very easy to use accessory, the software installation is very easy and the pen with the sensor without any problem. Once you connect Inkling a computer for the first time, it installs the software very quickly and they are introduced in the interface so that you choose between drawings to export your drawings to Photoshop, Illustrator or an Autodesk Sketchbook Pro. Even if you do not need to edit them you can immediately save them in .jpg, .bmp, .tiff, .png, .pdf or. Svg
Inkling has the advantage of being small, ideal to carry in any bag or backpack and to be able to use it in any place or situation, there is no doubt that it is a great advantage. So Inkling is the tool that makes illustrators forget their scanner and the arduous task of drawing paper and a pencil to scan and digitize their drawings?
Not at the moment Unfortunately it is noticed that the perfection and the fidelity in the strokes is not so good, so if you want to digitize illustrations or drawings with much detail Inkling do not give it to you or you will have to do much retouching, which, depending on your Illustration may make it easier to go back to scratch. However, it should be noted that Wacom presents an Inkling as a “Sketching” tool to sketch their ideas, and there is precisely with digital illustration features.
If you want to make sketches to not forget concepts or ideas that come to you all day to mind is a good option; If you want to do doodles, doodles or storyboards is very helpful, but there is no tool that will work for the professional illustrator or artist, who lives 8 or 10 hours in front of a painter, illustrator or Photoshop, as Inkling does not give the detail And precision millimeter per millimeter he needs.
