Si se trata de trabajar con un lienzo, convirtamos nuestra pantalla en uno. Wacom, los fabricantes de tabletas gráficas que nos hacen la vida más fácil van más allá y es que en la Wacom Cintiq pintas sobre la pantalla. No me llega el presupuesto pero seguro que antes de que pierda todo el pelo trabajaremos así.
Si tienes la suerte de tener una aquí te dejo los enlaces para algunos truquillos de Photoshop:

Cintiq 21UX – Features & Benefits
Intuitive to use. When you’re using a Cintiq you work with the pen directly on the screen. This empowers you to take advantage of your natural hand-eye coordination to work more quickly and intuitively in any software application. There is little or no learning curve because of this natural «pen-on-paper» work approach.
Pressure sensitivity. With 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, you can control your software tools by changing how hard you press the pen tip on the tablet. With 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, you can dynamically control things like exposure, brush size, opacity, and more.
Ergonomic comfort. The Cintiq 21UX has a completely flat surface edge-to-edge to allow the pen and hand to glide over the entire surface comfortably. Artists and designers will really appreciate this elegant design because it eliminates the artificial borders and distractions caused by a raised bezel edge. For designers, architects, technicians, and engineers, the flat surface of the Cintiq 21UX means they can use guides and drawing tools such as French curves, protractors, rulers, and templates directly on the Cintiq 21UX surface.
ExpressKeysâ„¢. Eight programmable ExpressKeysâ„¢ give you convenient mouse clicks and keyboard shortcuts right at your fingertips. ExpressKeys are «chordable» and can be used for modifiers, keyboard shortcuts, pop-up menus, and more.
Touch Strips. Finger-sensitive Touch Strips give you access to quick scrolling, zooming, controlling brush size, and more.
Cintiq 21UX Grip Pen. The cushioned, contoured grip fits comfortably in your hand and has 1,024 levels of tip and eraser pressure sensitivity and tilt sensitivity for even more control. The programmable DuoSwitchâ„¢ along the pen allows you to program your most common actions into the pen itself.
Includes three nib styles for a variety of feels:
(1) Standard Nib for the right balance of control and longevity for extensive everyday use;
(2) Stroke Nib that includes a dual-action spring to simulate a natural brush-like feel.
(3) Felt Nib to replicate the sensation of using a «felt-tip marker» by creating just the right amount of surface friction.
Cintiq 21UX Tactile sensation. Cintiq implements unique LCD technologies to achieve a natural paper-like experience. The surface has two coatings, one to diminish glare and another to provide a texture simulating the feel of paper. These surfaces are also hardened to provide durability and longevity. The LCD itself has been structured to eliminate any screen distortion when the pen tip is pressed against the surface. The result is an incredibly natural and intuitive experience.
No-fuss system integration. You have direct control of your configuration because your new Cintiq will work seamlessly with your existing mouse or Wacom Intuos3 tablet and can be installed as a single monitor or as part of a multi-monitor combination. Cintiq employs standard connection options to work with all primary platforms (USB for pen input; DVI or VGA for video).
Wacom Driver. Tablet driver software allows you to create universal settings for your display or alter your settings by application for maximum productivity. An intuitive interface gives you detailed control so you can work exactly the way you want, personalize the way your pen feels, access your favorite keystroke combinations and optimize your work environment with flexible mapping.
Technology. Patented cordless, battery-free technology for a natural feel and superior performance.
