What needs to be done to use Wacom stylus with PE8?

Dec 29, 2012 1:59 PM

I had been using Photoshop Essentials wich came with my Wacom tablet. Worked beautifully with the Wacom stylus. I upgraded to PE8 recently and can't get it to register/recognise the Wacom tablet/stylus. Makes fine detail drawing mighty tedious! What needs to be adjusted to be able to use the stylus?

    When you say pse 8 won't reconize the tablet, does that mean the cursor doesn't respond or you don't have any pen pressure?


    Did you go to the wacom site and check for the latest drivers for your tablet?


    Were you using a version of photoshop elements before?


    I have a bamboo tablet that seems to work fine with pse 8.



    Also, there are settings in the tool options bar for tablet pressure in pse 8 with the brush tool selected:
