    Crisp lines?

    I’m having problems in making my lines nice and crisp in Photoshop. I am using a tablet (no pen presser thought ) and Photoshop elements 2.0. Are there any tips into creating crisp lines?

    Hi there,

    this could be one of three things,

    I dont know how much you can customise brushes in 2.0 - but i would play around with various brush settings and stuff till you get the sharp brush you want.


    But it could be an effect that some people use after they have finished. They apply a sharpen filter on the piece which just slightly makes it all seem crisp.

    But also, it can be down to your skill, early on with digital painting people tend to over blend and put too much colour down, which leads to less crisp work.

    anyways, hope this helps somewhat

    It could be as simple as "you're working at too low a resolution." The smaller your image, the more fuzziness you experience overall because you're limited by the amount of detail the available pixels can convey...
