I just received an almost-new Wacom CTL-470 tablet from my father yesterday, so naturally I began fooling around with Photoshop line drawings and simple art.
The initial problem I discovered was that, oddly enough, the basic brush tools, when dragged, would not create a solid line. It would only create a dotted line, the spaces between dots varying with speed of the pen against the tablet.
If I dragged the pen slowly enough (very... very slowly), it would create a kind of shaky line, which was just dots very close together.
Naturally I thought it was the tablet's fault, but upon trying to use the mouse to do the same function, the problem persisted.
I use Photoshop CS and I didn't change any settings at all today.
I have some things that friends wanted me to do for them, and this problem is starting to irritate me as I have no idea where it came from or how to get rid of it.
I would also like to know how I can use my tablet to create a tapering effect with my pen pressure. The "pen pressure" setting in the Brushes menu seemed to have no effect.
I have never experienced this problem before and I would like help as soon as possible. Thank you so much in advance.
Here's an example of the issue, both in large brushes and a smaller one in the background.
Hello, I think they got you covered, but, without sounding pedantic, I would strongly suggest to chose a more neutral Photoshop environment if you intend to color correct images. Look at different color-based optical illusions, it will tell you how such a colorful environment can set off your normal color perceptions.
My 2cents. But it sure drags attention to your screen capture
