I see this is a well discussed problem in many Photoshop online forums with some solutions, but can't find a proven solution for Photoshop Elements (PSE).

My problems:-

  1. Can’t use the Wacom to properly select the 'Clone Stamp' source area without activating brush option controls + a 'white circle' appears (something to do with Ink I presume? I don't use it BTW)
  2. Switching off ‘Use Windows Ink’ in Wacom Control Panel 'PSE' tab resolves the problem, BUT......
  3. Pen pressure is now disabled! I can toggle this on and off using by ticking/un-ticking ‘Use Windows Ink’ checkbox in the PSE tab of the Wacom Control Panel.

What have I done so far?

I called Wacom who were very helpful, but was eventually advised I should raise this with Adobe.I called Adobe UK number who wouldn’t provide support with PSE 2018 as 2019 has been released! (NOT very helpful!!)

What am I using?

  • Wacom Intuos Small version (purchased on 27/1/19)
  • Wacom Control panel & Driver version 6.3.32-4
  • PSE 2018
  • Windows 10 on HP Spectre X360 13" Convertible

If a representative of Adobe software support reads this forum, please provide a fix for all the PSE users who are having the same problem!

Hi Steve

I’m not using a Wacom tablet myself but I think brush selection, either sensitivity for size or sensitivity for opacity is important when using the clone stamp tool. See if this YouTube video is of any help:

Did whatever Wacom tell you solve the issue?

If not, look at this video around the 4.12 mark for two windows settings to change.
