Ses' basics PS tut -part 1 by T0xicEye Ses' basics PS tut -part 1 by T0xicEye

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:

Ok i selected the size in the little window then you told me to click the brush. but what do i change once im in the brush window?

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.

It would be helpful if you could show me a screenshot so I could see what might be the problem.
