Tablet pressure doesn't work in Photoshop CS3 but works in every other software

skittlesai Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Student General Artist
I have a Wacom Intuos4 Small tablet and everything works perfectly on Paintool SAI for me, but when it comes to Photoshop CS3, there's always a problem. If my computer isn't just restarted, the pen pressure won't work. If I restart my computer and then launch Photoshop, the pressure works but after I put my computer to sleep, when I wake it, the pressure doesn't work anymore. I tried the brush settings and shape dynamics already, but it doesn't work for me. I don't want to restart my computer every time I want to use Photoshop, please help!

I used to have a problem with cs3 where if I didn't open photoshop with my tablet I wouldn't have pressure sensitivity. Seems weird, but its the truth!

It's a stupid bug of photoshop which they never solved. It usually helps me to start photoshop with the keyboard or mouse and not the tablet.

Do you have photoshop-specific settings in the Wacom configuration tool? Or is it just covered under "all"?
