Ses' basics PS tut -part 1 by T0xicEye Ses' basics PS tut -part 1 by T0xicEye
WARNING! HUGE FILE!!!

Second part:[link]

I offered *Tavaris to help her when she has any questions about cging. Since I couldn't answer her questions without showing her something in PS I decided to make a tutorial. It covers a few basics like inking (thanks again to *LandingZone), an optimal inking and coloring size, lazy-ass selecting areas via the Magic wand tool and lasso tool.
The next part will cover the coloring process and clipping masks (formally known as "groups" in PS 7).

I work with PS CS3 now, and a Wacom tablet in A5.

Here are some more useful stuff, Keyboard shortcuts:
B: brush
V: move tool
R: Smudge/Sharpen/Blur tool
G: Paintbucket/Gradient tool
T: Type tool
L: Lasso tool
W: Magic wand tool
Using the eyedroper (colorpicker) while using the brush tool: Alt (while using the brushtool)
Ctrl + Z: Undo
Ctrl + Alt +Z: Undo several times

Use shift/alt/ctrl for additional options while using any tool.

Hope it's useful for anyone.

PS: Sorry for any spelling mistakes. I should learn english again.

Like I said before, for the graphictablet options you need to click in the little black arrow thingy (you might need to click on it several times, somehow my PS seems to have trouble recognizing that I slicked it :/). Here is a screenshot: [link]
If you press the arrow this little window will pop up. You need to check the first box to enable PS to use the pressure sensitivity of the tablet.

Also, I try to be as helpful as possible. c:

I just mentioned the brush window for future reference. ALthough you can change "Space" (I think it is called like that in english) you can change the number to 0%.
Sadly I couldn't find a way to add a texture to the brush like you can do in PS CS.
But at least you now should have a penpressure sensitive brush.

Sorry for my late reply. IN case you are still stuck with the problem, I can maybe still help.

As I can see there is no Brush palette window (which you'd need to change the brush settings). In the upper bar go to Window->Brushes, this should display the brush palette window. I hope that works, because from what I see PSE is much more different from PS CS then I thought.

Tell me if that works.

Ok, I got an older version of PS Elements with my tablet together. Installed it and searched for the options. I think I found it.
I reused your screenshot, because my version of PS Elements is in a different language. [link]
I marked it on the screenshot. Press the little black arrow thingy (marked in red) and a little window will pop up with graphictablet options. YOu need to have the first box where it says "Size" checked.
If you click on the brush thingy on the right (marked in blue on the screenshot) you will get a window with additional brush options.

You mean your Photoshop Version doesn't have a brush palette? If that is so it just isn't activated, because as far as I know every PS version has one.

I have a question, in picture two, how do you get your brush to go thin to thick back to thin ? Because I've tried everything and can't get it like that D:

I use CS2

First you need a tablet and then go in PS (I use PS CS3) to the brush palette, click on "Shape dynamics" and there right under "Size Jitter" there is the Control menu. Click on the arrow and choose "Pen pressure" and make sure that "Size Jitter" and "Minimum diameter" are at 0%.
I also normally choose when on "Brush tip shape" the "Spacing" at 0% not the default 25%.

I did all that, but my brush is not turning out like that DX

Do you mean your brush does not change its shape in any way when you draw with your tablet pen, or your brush doesn't look like mine in the picture? If it's the latter then that's because of practise. You need to practise and play with the pen pressure to be able to make strokes the way you want. Inking is one of the hardest parts (at least for me) when drawing a picture.

Ohhh... Yes because it doesn't change in the picture, or with the pen D:

That is about what I do with my pictures. With a small exception, that I always wondered and now I see explained. You use a much thinner lineart! That is why they look so clean! Wow :O

so very helpful! I always wanted to beleve there was an easeir way to solect the line art. Does the outline have to be solid in order to work properly?

:icont0xiceye:
T0xicEye Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2008  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, it has to be solid. And for the best result it has to be fairly thick (that's why I work so large and with a five pixel brush).

Ich zeichne meine Outlines in Open Canvas, da sind die so schön fein. PS CS 2 will das nicht so fein hin bekommen wie ichs gern hätt (wobei ich ka hab in wie weit sich Version 3 da jetzt unterscheidet) ^^ noch besser ist dafür jedoch Paint Tool Sai, wofür ich aber leider die Lizenz nicht hab :( zumindest meiner Ansicht nach.
