    My genius 8x6 is having the same problem in CS 2, with all "pen pressure" control situations. cs 2 gives me a little error button next to the pen pressure control saying the tablet I have plugged in doesn't support pressure control. I think it might be the driver I have, but I've tried fixing it, so Idk. :(

You need to use a bigger brush. the highest level of pressure is the full brush size (i.e, it won't ever make it bigger than the biggest size you select). It seems to work percentage-wise from that (half-pressure=half-size).

Also, make sure the setting are correct in the brush pallete (check shape dynamics and make sure the Control: is set to "Pen Pressure). Note that you can change it to control other things instead of size (I frequently use it on opacity to do sketches in a pencil style, and it works really beautifully).

Oh yeah, make sure you change the battery too. Mine came with it pre-installed and there wasn't enough juice, so I put one of my rechargeable's in and it worked fine.

My G-Pen 4500 tablet won't work after I upgraded my photoshop to CS5.1 but it works perfectly fine on photoshop CS2. I'd already tried re-installing the driver and changing the compatibility... Please


The best way to get out of that trouble is to uninstall all CS applications and re-install the one you would like to use. CS5 came with alot of new features and in a way, upgrading CS1 to CS5 would surely give you a bit of a headache.

No one knows how to turn on pen pressure for photoshop 7


If you haven't tried this yet:
First go to "Windows" on the task-bar of Photoshop.
Go down and select Brushes.
A window should pop up with several different setting for your brush. Check the Shape Dynamics if it isn't checked.
And then the pen pressure should work I believe. Hope I helped.

I also solved the problem by installing the driver from the website. The trick was to uninstall the old driver first.

G-Pen F610 versus Photoshop 7


I believe I understand what you are referring to. I can reproduce this same effect in Photoshop 6. The settings for tweaking this and other options like opacity is under the "BRUSH DYNAMICS" button for the particular brush. The default seems to have SIZE set to be managed by the STYLUS pressure. If this is changed to OFF, the size will remain constant, and you can use stylus pressure to change another dynamic. Hope this is of some help.
