I haven't drawn in photoshop in a while, and I decided yesterday that I would. I connected my intuos 4 tablet to my computer like I normally would, opened photoshop elements 9, and opened up a new file. That was when I realized that the pen pressure and sensitivity wasn't working. Every line I drew, whether I added little pressure or lots of pressure was the same size.
Since yesterday afternoon until now, I have looked for solutions. So far, I have tried:
- changing my pen settings (Wacom Tablet Properties)
- making sure the pen was in 'pen' mode and not 'mouse' mode. (It was already in pen mode)
- Checked my brush settings on photoshop-- everything was working properly except for the pen pressure.
- Updating my tablet's driver
- Changing the nib on my pen
none of these have worked, so I was just wondering if anyone else went through this problem, and what they did to fix it? I also have no idea if this is a photoshop elements problem or a wacom problem... please help me. I'm on the verge of just buying a new pen, tablet, and photoshop program. -- or even better, maybe I'll just use painttool sai instead of photoshop.
I apologize if I sound angry or frustrated, it is just that I can't figure out what is wrong.
Try dragging tip feel towards soft. See if that makes a difference.
Do you have a Details button? Normally there is a Feel Dialog which gives a graphical representation and shows thickness of pen stroke based upon chosen sensitivity and threshold settings.
NOTE: detail settings will be overridden by tip feel/eraser feel settings. So try and get the detail/feel dialog correct first and then adjust tip feel only if necessary.
