View Full Version : My WACOM is a goblin as of late

05-15-2005, 03:21 AM
When I'm trying to paint in Photoshop CS my tablet (WACOM Graphire ET) it won't paint in a consistent streak (I just downloaded the newest drivers, no go still), I have my flow at 100% and opacity even at 100% still it looks like this (sorry I only have geocities hosting for a brief while...):


It's really evident with small brush sizes, so detail work is a beast, but blends together obviously when the brush is very large.

It may be something very basic I'm not getting but I'd appreciate some guidance. Thanks a lot and sorry if this has been asked before and I couldn't find it with the "Search" feature.


Oh and that screenshot is at 100% zoom, and now that I play with it a bit more since I've installed the new drivers when I paint with my mouse even it still is very spaced out... Frowny face.

That means the spacing is high, check the brush settings. It's to the far right on the bar where you can set opacity and that type of stuff. If you still cant find it go to like help file or something.

i think its the scatter in the Brushes tab.

As already said, its the brush, not the tablet, don't be scared

;) hope this works

Thanks everyone this helps a lot. My only problem now is that I have to individually select the spacing for each brush size when I select it. It's tedious but not driving me insane. I looked through my preferences and couldn't find a way to set some sort of "auto-spacing" for my brushs, oh well. Thanks again!

Have you tried deleting your photoshop preferences - they might have become corrupt?
It solves most odd behaviour in PS but you have to remember to set your history levels and other such stuff back once you've done it, cos it resets everything to default. I don't know about the latest versions (I'm still using PS7) but try launching PS then really quickly hold down ctrl+alt+shift.
