    Hi,
    does anyone know how to get the pressure sensitivity to work in Photoshop CS3?
    I allready installed the Wacom Driver so PS doesn't complain anymore about that there is no usable device. But pressure sensitivity still doesn't work in PS. In MS Journal it works fine.

    I'm running cs2 on my machine, so I really can't comment on cs3. I however have no problem with pressure sensitivity missing in cs2 and I can't think of a reason why there should any with cs3. Maybe unstall cs3, reinstall wacom drivers, install ps, and install wacom again. That might solve it, as wacom drivers can be quite sensitive to new programs installed. I have had to this more than a couple of times in the past.

    When you say you installed the Wacom driver, I take it by this you are referring to the Enhanced Graphics Driver, yes.

    Certain programs (as PVIllustration mentions) don't like Pressure Sensitivity and need to be told what to do.... as in the Art Program 'Twistedbrush' from Pixarra.

    In order to get this program to accept pressure sensitivity you have to alter the programs .exe file.
    1. Right click on the .exe file and select properties.
    2. Click on the 'Compatibility' tab.
    3. Go down to the 'Input Settings' box and click 'Turn off advanced text services for this program'.

    Why not try this with CS3. It may just work!

    @ labeen the stock pen tc4400 would have pressure sensitivity, for other wacom pens that would do the same can be found here:
