This question has been already asked, but it's seven years old. Can it be done with now days photoshop? Or is there a workaround that involves photoshop?

I mean about the pen pressure curvature. When the harder you press the bigger the brush gets. Is there a way to inverse that in photoshop? Starting from a big brush with very low pressure to smaller and condensed brush size with higher pressure.

    Sorry, but..... Huh? I have no idea what's being asked here. "Pen pressure" is a function of a drawing tablet and has little to do with any application in use. And what do you mean "inverse"? Can't one simply "inverse" the pressure used?? Rather than drawing - hard-soft-hard... just draw soft-hard-soft.

  • Like someone suggests in this Adobe Forum post. community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-ideas/…

  • I suppose I could see some use for it.. but it's still not possible as far as I'm aware. I still think you can do all this with your hand as one draws/paints and there's no need to have a curve for pressure. The point of pressure is to mimic real life... you can't change the curve if using paper and a pencil.. .you learn to control the pressure in your hand. I realize an argument could be made for "tech making things better" but I don't see that in this case.. tech for tech's sake isn't always an improvement.

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. What are you trying to do? What is the ultimate goal here? What problem are you trying to solve? I don't think what your are describing would be useful. I'm not aware of any drawing/painting application that would work that way, and even if it could, why would anyone want it to work that way? It's totally counter intuitive. I'm going to agree with @Scott here. Graphics tablets are designed for simulating traditional pens, pencils, and brushes. The harder you press, the thicker/broader/heavier the stroke.
