    Brush size problems in painter

    I'm using painter IX, trying to learn it, and was just wondering if it has the same sensitivity settings available as photoshop? like for example using my wacom in photoshop pressing harder gets bigger strokes/changes opacity etc., etc. I have only used painter one or two times before this, so I'm not familiar with it at all.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Of course it has, but they may not act the same. In the brush creator (Ctrl+B) you can mess with the settings, basically wherever you see a setting called EXPRESSION, you can set it to "Pressure" so it responds correctly to pressure. With changing brush sizes, be sure to make the min size is much smaller than the normal size: only then will your wacom pressure work like it should. Just mess with the settings man, and keep it up with the artistic playing!

    Hi,

    You can also adjust your brush variant settings in the Brush Controls' palettes without being forced into a different interface for the Brush Creator and being separated from your work.

    Use Window > Brush Controls > Show General

    The Brush Controls' palettes will all open docked as a group.

    Width (or "thickness" and "thinness") of brush strokes controlled by Size Expression: Pressure

    With some brush variants, brush stroke size can be varied using Pressure, within a given range related to the overall current brush Size setting. In other words, the brush stroke can be made to paint a wide and narrow (or "thick" and "thin" stroke) in response to pen Pressure. If the brush variant is not already set to control Size Expression with Pressure, go to the Brush Controls' Size palette and, from the Size Expression drop down list, choose Pressure.

    NOTE: It's very important to set your Brush Tracking to make sure Painter "understands" your hand pressure. It'll make a big difference in how your brush strokes look. You may need to reset your Brush Tracking again on different days and for different brush variants as your hand pressure may not be the same every day and certain brush variants...and the way you want to use them... will require different Brush Tracking settings. You'll need to experiment to find what works best for you, but don't forget to do this:

    Preferences > Brush Tracking

    On the Brush Tracking scratch pad, paint a brush stroke using your normal variation of hand pressure and speed.

    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!
