Every since I got my hands on a tablet. I was hunting high and low for an application that does not cost me $$$. And on top of that can sense the amount of pressure I apply from my stylus to the screen on my tablet. Making the line thicker or thinner with the amount of pressure applied on the tablet. And my goodness me not only did I find a free application but a great application for free hand drawing and doing adjustments to photos..... read on.....

 

Ok if you read my previous articles... you must have seen that I had tried the gimp. The gimp is great!!! But it had just one little problem on my tablet there was no way I could enable the support for the wacom tablet in windows. Well luckily there is a nice application with support for wacom tablets and tablet pcs. Paint.net is that application and when you use the pain brush tool. It responds to preassure from your pen. The lines thickens when you apply more pressure and lightens when you release the pressure.

 Apart from just being pressure sensitive. It is a great tool for drawing and even adjusting your photos. Well all I can say is that its an all in one graphic application.

It even supports layers

and has some effects like the filters in photoshop.

 Best of all it is free. This is one application I must recommend and urge you to try.

GET IT HERE!!

Lately I have not been giving smileys but this app really deserves 5 cool smileys!!!

Can handle pen pressure. It looks very much like photoshop but it is FREE. Gimp on Windows is problematic when it comes to pressure sensitivity.

There seems to be an issue with wacom tablets and XP SP3.  
 
Mine stopped working properly since installing SP3 and I have been looking for answers, seems many people with varying products are having the same issues and all are running XP with SP3 installed.

WACOM pressure not in Paint.Net
Paint.net only supports pen pressure for windows vista. 
I asked on the forums, because my wacom intous tablet would not activate it's pen pressure on paint.net. 
And I'm not going to "upgrade" my computer to vista, since I hear it has tones of bugs in it..
