  • eraser and brush won't work -photoshop7

    hi all. I'm hoping someone can help me!! the eraser and paintbrush in my photoshop 7 program seem to have ceased working. the problem is not in the image file, because I can paint and erase in this image in photoshop elements with no problem. (i don't know if there's any connection, but the problem started last night after I installed a wacom tablet and associated software, including the wacom program, penPalette by nik, and corel Painter classic.) actually, i think the eraser is working, but only in the size of a microscopic pinprick, when I select brush mode. seems to be working with no problem in block mode.

    Thank god I have elements to pick up the slack at the moment, but this is a real pain!! any ideas or help you may have with this would be most appreciated!!!

    as an aside, the painter classic program that I just installed also seems to be behaving strangely. when I open any of my photos, the image appears all lime-green and pixelated. can't seem to get it to look like it's supposed to. any ideas on this one?

    thanks much!!

    I can't help you with Painter, but it sounds like your PS brushes got discombobulated. You can reset them via the brushes palette.

    You might also want to go into the Wacom control panel and walk through the calibration routine.

    Hope this helps, or that someone else can.

      New to Painter but I made this up already...

      Painter was set up for those (lucky ) people with a tablet, with the brushes responding to all sorts of input - pressure, angle, wheel etc.. etc..
      But those of us still pushing around a bar of soap don't have to lose out on all...

      Not sure of the right place to post this but this looked like a good place to start.

      Got an early Christmas gift of a Wacom pen tablet and they are offering me Corel Painter 8 at the upgrade price. Wondering how much I would use it if I get it. A version of the Painter...

      Painter IX5 Advice

      Need some input from those using Painter IX5.

      My thing is not brush and palette, I leave that up to my artist brother.

      I want to know if Painter IX5 allows you to paint other than with brushes from scratch, similar to Gertrudis.

      Is there a steep learning...

      Computer Restarts in Painter IX?
      by Axleuk

      I have recently purchased a copy of Painter IX and I am experiencing a problem that is causing my PC to restart.

      When i am doing any work with the Wacom tablet the CPU tempreture seems to rocket. I have a tempreture monitor running and when the pen hits the tablet...
