Resetting tablet pen sensitivity/pressure


Recommended Posts

So I just started using Paint.Net recently and I'm already beginning to love it, but after a few projects, my pen's sensitivity doesn't seem to be working as well as it had been. Instead of getting the fluid lines that usually comes in sweeping pen strokes, the line widths have been remaining the same density, which then makes whatever I try drawing completely lacking the kind of wispy lines I was hoping to achieve. Does the fault lie in Paint.Net? Or is it my tablet that's just not registering the pressure I'm applying on it?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As of now, pen pressure sensitivity, should work with Paint.NET, so you may need to check your tablet settings. What brand and model of tablet do you own?

And also, if you solve your tablet problem now, keep in mind, that pressure sensitivity will not work with the next release of Paint.NET. So don't get too comfortable with it :)

If you do a lot of drawing with it or really want the pen pressure, I must honestly point you towards GIMP (which has a graphic UI that will make you cry, especially after using Paint.NET) or, if you don't mind shelling out a few dollars, Corel Painter Essentials.

I just have a small 4x5 Wacom Graphire4 tablet. Cuz I'm cheap like that, but it works great nonetheless.

So the next update will take away the pen sensitivity? Really? Augh, that's gonna bite. And what's really funny is that I actually left Gimp for Paint.Net because it was so much nicer and I couldn't really figure out anything on Gimp despite all the tutorials. Ah, man... xP Well, thanks!

Hey PyroMutt,

I have the exact same tablet as you, and I honestly DO NOT CARE that Paint.NET doesn't support tablet sensitivity. I did notice, in downloading and playing with a bunch of new plugins today, that "Splatter" does behave a lot like a pressure sensitive brush - it's based on how fast you move rather than how hard you press, but since I usually am moving slower when I'm trying to increase pressure, the effect is almost identical for me.

Cheers!

You never know. It might come back.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
