I'd have to disagree with you eclic. I believe there is a problem here.
See this thread on the Photoshop.com site, and watch the video
The problem is there - even with the brush tip you mention.
To see this, you need to:
1. Be on a Windows machine (I understand this is a Windows only issue).
2. Have your settings: shape dynamics on; size jitter > control : pen pressure; brush smoothing on.
4. Make quick pressure sensitive strokes on a tablet - lifting off pressure at the end of the stroke.
I don't think it's a massive issue as it looks like it can be worked around with Smoothing switched off - but it should be fixed.
I'm unsure if smoothing is still really necessary as I think it was introduced way back... v7 or even earlier, when machines were, of course, nowhere near as powerful.

with videos, screenshots and whatnot.. wow. just... wow. that's what I was talking about - huge fail.
hope you guys will fix this. I would call it's a major bug that is a first priority for fixing.
outside the Photoshop you say.. then why other products managed to make it work? paint tool sai, sketchbook pro, painter, manga studio, etc does their thing just brilliant! you cannot even compare actually.
wacom drivers/properties is not the case here. adobe is. cannot make the most simple things to work right and not LAG.
it's just like this forum.. can't make a reply like in other normal forums, or edit anything. I don't get it, is firefox not compatible with this forum or smth..?! I mean, what-the-****?
I won't even start with our legendary flash player..
looks like the staff is obviously looking somewhere else - not in the essential user needs.
effects. all you have here are effects for photohraphs and some video editing (?!), but not for drawing .)
and for an artist-illustrator, that cares about delicate lineart and precision in drawing/sketching, Photoshop is still a huge and expencive disappointment so far. ask any pro.
and this issue that people brag about (so did I in this thread) is more than for a few years..
looking forward to this bug fix.
preferably in this century.
over and out.
I can understand a certain level of frustration, PAUZAK, but really? Are you a part of the same universe I'm in?
Your answer seems defensive; I'm just trying to help.
>then why other products managed to make it work?
I was only commenting on the points made in the thread YOU linked to. Apparently at least some people see the shoelace thing in the Wacom control panel. Given that evidence, which I doubt was manufactured, your pretense seems to need questioning. I suppose it's possible (actually, a certainty) that some products send different commands to the drivers than others, and that the drivers are doing things wrong only under some conditions. That's why I asked whether the Smoothing setting affected your setup.
>just like this forum.. can't make a reply like in other normal forums, or edit anything
I'm having no problems replying, or editing using any of the major browsers, including Firefox. I can't edit posts on an iPhone or iPad (not allowed to even try), but if you're using an actual computer and you can't even make the forum work, you have problems on your system.
>adobe is. cannot make the most simple things to work right and not LAG
Some operations in Photoshop are complex and when done with big brushes and all kinds of stuff (fuzzy edges, mixing, etc.) turned on they slow down, but with reasonable sized brushes I've been able to paint stuff, and I certainly don't have the world's fastest computer by today's standards. And even so, I'm not sure that's a situation where it's not working right per se... Maybe just one where a better computer is needed to paint with really big brushes and all the fancy stuff turned on. That *could* be a better computer than any invented yet, but that's okay - see next year's lineup...
>looks like the staff is obviously looking somewhere else
Wow, and you posted that *right* after one of the senior Photoshop scientist/engineers at Adobe responded specifically to you. When's the last time an engineer from any other big software company responded to you?
>Photoshop is still a huge and expencive disappointment so far. ask any pro
Yeah, all the pros just avoid Photoshop. That's why Adobe is doing so poorly as a business. They can hardly sell any copies at all!
PAUZAK, I'll go out on a limb and say making things up and trolling for shock value and blaming the world for your own problems probably aren't going to help you reach a solution.
1 - you ARE from a different universe.
2 - yes, it's amazingly frustrating to face such bugs from one update to another. it is extremely expensive program. especially in EU countries. in most countries it's price equals up to 3 medium sallaries.
3 - I don't take it personally, I'm just pointing out some stuff for people that are too lazy to do that in the most kind way it deserves. I also feel it's my duty as for a customer/client to do so.
4 - 'complex' is not the answer. it MUST work fluently on every medium machinery (rather than super computers). have you ever worked on a decent formats, such as for printing...? 300dpi, A3, A2 etc?
5 - artists DO avoid to buy this software for it's incompetence. they rather use a pirated v. of PS for minor tools/effects. for ex. from about more than 300 hundred ppl I know and work/ed with, only 1 has a genuine version : ))))) aint it funny, eh.
6 - this forum is probably too complex to work on 2 of my computers right (just amazing coincidence I think!)
7 - I'm glad I made you smile.
8 - take care.

I can imagine that's true for you, given your approach.

Wow, these are the "pros" you're asking us to respect the opinions of here?
Let them know the authorities are on their way.
yep. for your consideration - there are real pros amongst them, that work with world wide projects. and nah, I'm not kiddin. there are reasons why's that goinon: clients, file formats, workflow, etc. no critical fixes, no confidence in buying an early v. better drawing control/feel in other softs (such as mentioned above) and blah blah blah (...).
lol, I'm not asking to respect anything. I'm only suggesting to fix the critical bug here that all pros face and rather scan their drawings or use other products than work entirely on PS or even use PS. afterall, it is a way to stop massive threads like this around the web and get some clients.
authorities.. yeah right. you are a joker, mr. I'm glad you're having fun trolling around..
good night .)
