Contact Wacom, and double check the cable to the tablet.
Photoshop will recognize the tablet if the tablet is recognized by the system/driver.
You really need to view the Brush panel and see how the brush tip preview looks. If it shows a tapered stroke, and the pen presure doesn't make affect stroke width, then yes you have a problem. If the stroke is not tapered, then it is more likely brush settings.
Do you have the Wacom brush set in the panel. If yes, then you need to select a brush with pointed tip. Otherwise, come back and we'll talk about brush settings
Thanks, I've tried as you suggested and tried every brush tip type including airbrush, which is what I really need right now - tried various switches/sliders, but doesn't make any difference when I give it even the lightest of pressure or heavy, the stroke remains same throughout. I was wondering what you meant by have I got Wacom brush set in panel, is there a particular seting for Wacom ?
The brushes (roughly) outlined in red are added whenever I install the driver for my Inuos 4. Least ways I am reasonably sure that is the case, and they were not already there when CC was installed.
The top left brush above, has a pointed tip, and when selected, I see this sort of shape in the preview window of the Brush presets panel
So the point I was making is that if you don't see the tapered preview, then pen presure is not going to affect brush size. If you do see that sort of shape in the preview, and pen pressure still makes no difference, then you know something is not working right.
Hi, I have the same problem with the latest version of PS. Recently (withe previous versions) everything was always fine.
I can't see the tapered tip. What's interesting - the same settings of brushes, same version of PS in OS X work fine.

I know it's been a year but I had a similar issue and my fix was to enable windows ink in the Wacom settings/mapping then go to pen & touch in control panel and remove they annoying hold for right-click and flicks. Once I did this, then when I would enable pressure it all worked. One thing to note though is that if the brush you choose is already tapered then it disables the option to use the "always use pressure for size" button. Just choose a regular hard or soft brush and it will be active again. Good luck!
Thank you sooo much! this fixed the problem for me.
Been having this issue since CC2014 and still with CC2015 (everything worked fine with the original CC release and exact same PC and Wacom tablet.) This above solution worked, although I did find I had to 'prompt' the pen pressure to kick-in by flipping the pen over and using the eraser tip, then back to the brush tip. Thank F for that!! Cheers so much!
OK, spoke too soon...this ended up causing an issue that mentioned in another thread: Serious lag in Bridge, as it still takes each click as a 'press and hold' function.
I've rolled my Wacom driver back to 6.3.7-6 and everything works perfectly; no lag in bridge, pen pressure working perfectly in Photoshop, without any lag in using the eye-dropper tool, and no more ripple menu slowing things down.
The older driver isn't available on the Wacom site from what I can see, so you'll just have to do a careful search online for it. Hope it works for all of you as well as it has for me.
