Pressure sensitivity in photoshop with wacom?
show user profile  Joey Parker Jr.
I have a Intuos A4 USB tablet (GD-0912U) and the pressure sensitivity does not seem to work in photoshop on either PC or mac OSX. I've downloaded the latest drivers and everything. Just curious if anyone uses a tablet in PS with pressure sensitivity.
My tablet is ancient and I'm wondering if that may be the issue.
Thanks !

I get a bug where sometimes Photoshop (and only Photoshop) just won't pick up the pressure sensitivity. A restart usually fixes it (this has happened on XP and Win7 64-bit and with Photoshop CS3).

Tried restarting?

I had a somewhat similar problem in Win7 64bit where the windows tablet driver seemed to spontaneously over rule my wacom driver. I ended up going into services and disabling 'Tablet PC Input Service' <-- Useless IMHO. Perhaps give that a try? Though if you're having trouble in OSX as well I doubt this will be the fix for you.

Might be worth a shot.

Well, this is odd. I've got it working. If I select a brush it doesn't work until I click on the brush settings.
But, the brush settings are already set to pen pressure. But, then it works even though I didn't change anything. I don't know if that makes sense.

Shape dynamics has to be ticked even though it's set to pen pressure already.
