    Activating pressure sensitivity with Intuos2?

    Hey all. I have a question about Intuos2 in Photoshop. How do I activate the erasing feature and pressure feature on the pen?

    Hey, I might be wrong with this since I didn't have to change anything when I plugged mine in but if you go to start>programs>wacom tablet and open wacom tablet up all these settings will come up.. go to tip feel and check the tip feel pressure... make sure its somewhere in the centre or towards firm.

    If all is fine in the settings, open up photoshop and go to the brushes settings (its in the upper right corner in PS7) go to shape dynamics... they should all be on 0% set the size jitter to pen pressure from the drop-down menu..

    To activate the eraser function check the settings, go to eraser feel and make sure the tab is in the centre... you can also test it out in the little box underneath the tab. You could also flip the pen around to the eraser side and select the eraser tool in PS and then flip the pen around and select the brush tool with the pen side... and then just check to see if the eraser works.

    Sorry for the long read, but I know how confusing things are with the wacom... especially when just starting out. I hope this helps.
