    Is this normal?

    I was wondering if this was normal in Photoshop. I zoomed out to about 16% and did the lines you see here. It's really annoying when it happens even at 25% like the lines down the bottom were done. It was weird becuase the grey lines underneith the black ones were done the night before at 25% as well and they dont seem jagged. Is there something wrong with my tablet or my photoshop application? might I have accidnetly changed a setting? I have an Intuos 3 and Photoshop CS 2, I also have smoothing turned on. Any help would be appreciated.

    No, it's not normal, but I can't say what the problem might be. intuos 3 tablets have such a high resolution that when combined with PS stroke interpolation they should yield smooth lines down to insane zooms (I tested this at 1% zoom and it yielded smooth lines, albeit changing direction sharply in some places)

    Some questions:

    -Operating system
    -Wacom driver version
    -Is your tablet set to map to the screen on a 1:1 basis? Should be in wacom properties.

    Thanks for your reply.
    My operating system is XP Professional and is up to date I believe. The driver is version 6.02-1. I don't know how to find out if my mapping is set to 1:1(the tablet is mapped to use the whole screen if thats what you mean) but I don't think that would be the problem. I tested in Painter IX.5 and there were no problems. I could zoom out all the way to 1% and no jagged lines present at all.

    you might want to try the wacom forums at http://www.wacom-europe.com/forum/default.asp?lang=uk

    also, have you tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling ps?

    Turns out my CPU fan was clogged with dust. cleaned it and it worked straight away. Computer started running much smoother. I didn't even notice how badly my computer was running. Good lesson
