Desktop Photoshop tethered to the iPad for digital inking using Astropad Studio

Apr 30, 2020

A few things one should know about Astropad Studio (@astropadco) if unfamiliar with the original Astropad: It turns an iPad Pro into a second-screen experience for one's Mac (Astropad only favors Apple’s hardware at the moment), providing practically lag-free drawing, sketching, or photo retouching using the company's patented Liquid rendering engine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It works either connected via USB or via Wi-Fi alone – a nice bonus when I’m sitting on my living room couch and want to sketch directly on a Photoshop canvas on my MacBook Pro. Ideally, one also needs a Bluetooth pressure-sensitive stylus – preferably an Apple Pencil - to get the full sketching experience in apps like Photoshop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
