XP-Pen has just launched its new tablet, the Deco mini7W. It’s a small but powerful table and the fact that it connects wirelessly to the computer makes this tablet much easier to use and much more versatile. I just had to test it, and when XP-Pen sent me this one to test, I was completely delighted with it.
I’ve been editing my images with a pen for a long time. With the mouse, I can’t get the level of control and detail that a graphics tablet and a stylus pen can give me. Working with a stylus pen is, for me, much more natural.

In his recent tutorial, photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich drew our attention to some major mistakes we make when editing documentary and travel images. Now he’s taking things to a higher level. Mitchell has just announced an in-depth tutorial for editing these kinds of images. He guides you through editing one of his photos, so you can follow along, one step at a time. Even though you can edit Mitchell’s image, it’s not about following a certain trend or replicating a certain look. The goal is to learn how to edit a documentary photo of life to be lifelike.

But some mistakes are more common than others and they persist even though they’re “rookie mistakes.” In this video, Mitchell Kanashkevich draws your attention to them and gives you five tips that will help you to stop making them.

Skylum, which has ridden the AI photo editing craze better than any company, is about to release Luminar AI. ON1 now offers ON1 Portrait AI. DxO announced DxO DeepPRIME, which it describes as “an artificial intelligence technology dedicated to editing photos in RAW format.”
Adobe just made AI a major centerpiece in the latest version of Photoshop, declaring that Photoshop is “the world’s most advanced AI application for creatives.”

Since 2002, I bought and used a lot of tablets to try to build the best setup I could. It came as a necessity to ease my full days of digital painting.
