    Tablet Help

    So I have my beloved tablet, works great

    Thing is, I was super-hyped about the sensetivity of the pen, and I was hoping to have it adjust the opcity of my strokes depending on how hard I pressed. I installed the drivers (It's a used Intuos 2 with no manual by the way) and played around with it, but photoshop isn't responing in any way to the sensetivity, not even after I added its name to the program roster and fiddled around with some options...

    Any help is appreciated, any help in finding a manual online would be apreciated all the more

    PS isnt responding to the opacity/pressure? or its not responding to the tablets pressure? Make sure you are using the right brush with the correct setting to make use of that feature.

    Are you using the bundled drivers, or the latest version from the wacom website? Try the updated one if you're not.

    And here's where you can d/l the manuals:

    There were 3 offered on the site, I downloaded what seemed to be the latest version (not the beta).

    And red rook, all I know is that in the 'test area' the size of my brush is affected by the pressure applied, while in photoshop the pressure has no apparent effect. I couldn't find a menu to access any options for opacity=pressure. I'm not sure what you mean by the 'right' brush.

    This could be your problem: Open up the brush tab in Photoshop and make sure "Other Dynamics" is checked and that the opacity jitter control is set to "Pen Pressure." Not all of Photoshop's brushes do this by default so you may need to set this each time you change brushes.
