    PS settings compared to Painter

    Hi all,

    Being a newb to tablets and painting and all...I was playing around with PS and painter classic and I noticed that when I am doing quick circles PS gives me sort of straight lines within the circles whereas Painter circles are beautiful and smooth...what gives?

    Have I got set the tablet up differently or am I missing something?

    Anyone had a similar problem?

    I don't know about Painter Classic since I use Painter 7, all I can tell you is that Painter 7 has a function called 'damping' that averages out your strokes and creates a smooth curved mark along the averaged path. Turn this off and you get jagged circles like you do in Photoshop to.

    Am I missing your point entirely?

    It's got to be more than a memory, or is life just a fantasy and a piss in the sand?

    Photoshop 7? Open the Brushes palette and check the 'Smoothing' checkbox. I can't recall if there was a similar feature in previous versions
