View Full Version : Photoshop Crash

04 April 2008, 06:10 AM

In Photoshop C3, when I make a brush with Shape Dynamics and the Angle jitter set to 'Direction', CS3 crashes after painting for a while with the brush. Anyone experience the same?

Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2
Photoshop CS3

Yeah, this bug has been around for ages. I avoid using that setting, which is a shame, because it's really useful.

Hmm is this issue with CS3 and/or Leopard? With CS2 on XP I always used this setting, so I's kinda harsh if all my favourite brushes are unusable when I paid arm and a leg to upgrade.

Ahhh - so that is why I have crashed PS CS2 the last 4 times I've tried to create a speedpaint with custom brushes. Man I thought my PS was cooked as it kept doing it even after a reinstall.

Actually - I get crashes with just about any brush that is not the standard round, my own custom brushes, the generic custom brushes that comes with PS and so on.

I am on a vista machine with 2 gigs of ram and a 2.2 GHz Coe 2 Duo using CS2 and it seems document and brush size makes no difference.

Any sollutions you might know of, the alternative I have is corel painter essentials which is imho rather limited.

This seems to be fixed in CS4.
