    How do can i get best the most range of opacity/pressure with a wacom pen?

    Yeah i finally got a tablet for my bday:> pressing 1-10 on my keyboard is kind of annoying though. How do i get my pen pressure to do all that? I messed with the firmness in system preferences, but how do i make it more powerful in photoshop?
    lemme know.

    ...

    Brush preset -> Shape dynamics -> Size Jitter Control: Pen pressure

    Then for opacity I believe you go: Other Dynamics -> Opacity Jitter Control: Pen pressure

    I don't have PS at hand, so I may be wrong...

    Along what jouzinka said what kind of tablet do you have? Go and check the pen pressure and make sure to lock that function.

    Depending on what tablet you have, the tablet will register how much pressure your pressing down on with the pen. Like a real pencil.
    Hope this helps :]
