Photoshop on my laptop - Aspire V5-572PG

ogfelogfel Member Posts: 2 New User
I'd like to know how to set up the Photoshop (the latest 2019) for working with styluses on the touch screen of the Aspire V5-572PG? In fact, the touchscreen works only for scaling and rotating with fingers, but neither the stylus nor fingers are detected as a brush when I try to draw. I couldn't find any special settings in the Photoshop.

    Hi @ogfel,

    It's nothing about settings. 

    The currently Photoshop doesn't have full touch screen support for some (most) laptops. Photoshop supports normal and simple touch functionality like tools, resize, etc. But for pressure sensitive task like brush and liquify, it doesn't work. It makes sense that it doesn't work because most touch screens are not pressure sensitive. 

    You should be able to paint with a mouse or touch pad which have a left click button your finger lacks.

    There are only a few finger gestures that work with Photoshop, which can be seen at this link:

    Hope my answer comes in handy.

    Hi @Piter,

    Thank you for your really useful answer! I'd like to know is there any way to set the touchscreen as a mouse and use this touchscreen to draw lines with my finger or a stylus in the Photoshop even without settings of sensitivity or tilt?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi again, @ogfel,

    Photoshop supports touch gestures not finger painting.  I don't think you can do that, really sorry.
