View Full Version : Opacity/Brush not working properly in PS3
September 7th, 2008, 09:45 AM
My problem, basically, is when I first touch the tablet very lightly, it applies a bold solid colour rather than a light opaque colour. I've configured my tablet in control panel & have adjust the brush settings in ps3, but the opacity/brush stroke isn't working properly, so I'm unable to follow the paint tutorials that CA members have posted.
Any help? Thanks in advance.

Not really sure about this one... am I to assume that you mean CS3 and not PS3?? Not even sure if Photoshop 3 had pen sensitivity...
You say you adjust the brush settings. Do you mean in the Brush Pallette or in the option bar?? If you set the opacity to 10% in the option bar, there is no way that I can think of that this should not work.
Standard brush settings will only affect size jitter and not flow. I would go over all the settings in the Brush pallette and see if something is set up wrong there. One other thing could be that you have selected a brush that came with settings like you are experiencing, but that seems odd to me too.
First thing I would test is using an ordinary mouse, select brush tool, set opacity to 10%, colors standard and paint. This should give you a light grey. If this works, then it is in your tablet settings. If it doesn't, then I don't know. Never had this myself.
Best of luck

try these steps and see if they work:
1. press F5 to open the brushes window and tick 'other dynamics' - that activated the pressure sensitive opacity control
2. if that hasnt done it, then restart photoshop
3. if not that, then reinstall the wacom driver
4. if not that then do all of the above and restart the computer
Ive been having problems with the pressure sensitivity on my intuos3 suddenly stop working, what fixed it earlier today was restarting CS3 and reinstalling the wacom driver. not sure which one fixed it cause i did both at the same time.
