Brush Opacity Wacom

Hi

 

I love using my wacom to provide more accurate editing; I love I can pess the tabble button and the pen and change size and hardness of brush - move left of right and it inceases and deceases.

 

Opaciy I need to use the computer keyboard to type in numbers.  Ideally I'd love to be albe to control that from the tablet.  I understand pen sensitivety can do it sort off, but I often use 100% having to press harder than my hand wants. Is their a key stroke I can use with the pen to specify opacity, or the ring? 

 

If so what is the keystroke please?

 

Thank you.  I'd love not to need my keyboard

yes this answeed the quesion, as i was able to set opacity and hardness to the horizontal and vertical, and brush size to the dial, or hardness, which ever I usually change least.

 

I would be good to attatch all thee to the pen vertecal, hoizonal and diagonal, clealy not happening yet.

Hi, normally, by default, Edit>Preferences>Tools>Vary Round Brush Hardness based on HUD vertical movement is checked,

If unchecked, you would vary the opacity instead, but I have to check if it could also work on non-round brushes.

nope that doesn't work. sorry

 

I am no wild about pessure senstitivity = opacity, a 100 it would hurt your hand, being able to contol it from tablet accurately - like 70 or 80 etc. Brush pressure is not accuate.

OK, When you say "I can press the tablet button and the pen" are you doing the equivalent of an ALT+Right click, and getting the red overlay? If you are using a non-round brush, scrolling up and down varies opacity.

With a round brush, you need to uncheck the preference I listed to adjust transparency with a vertical movement.

The red is only there for round brushes. Alt+Right click does change opacity if you uncheck that preference.

Sorry

 

If I use a brush alt right mouse ... move the pen horizontally changes size, vertically the hardeness.

Or vice versa.

 

If I uncheck the preferences, you say it can do this for opacity, but how do I change harddness/size if the vertical is unusable.

A diagonal movement is a combination of a vertical and an horizontal one, not sure how Ps could tell what you want.
