    Why can I only paint straight lines in Photoshop CS6?

    Bulbabooty Community Member

      I am trying to paint something that I have wanted to for a while now, and Photoshop is presenting some troubles for me. I can not paint curves, and instead, only straight lines without pen pressure (Size, opacity, the likes.) The result of my efforts is the same as if I were to draw a dot (click once in other words), press shift, and make another dot somewhere else. It's just straight lines no matter what.

       

      I am currently on an Emachines computer running Windows 7, Photoshop CS6 and this is the first time I have bothered with the brush tool in Photoshop.

       

      I hope this information is useful for someone to help me so that I may paint freely. Thank you for reading.
