I got a tablet for fun because it was a good price, and it came with some version of PS. Now, my tablet works perfectly in Gimp and PS, although I must admit that Gimp handles the various control points better (last selected tool for each input device retains and auto-switches when you switch devices). In PS, even though I do not have my hardness effected by my pen pressure, it clearly does affect it anyway. That seems to be true for how PS works in general. If you have 100% hardness in a brush, but make it very small, the hardness seems to decrease with the brush size. So, a 100% hardness 2px diameter brush, when using pen-pressure to control size, will look like a 2px brush with 20% hardness. Gimp however, seems to give you exactly what you tell it to. So, your brush size can't go smaller than 1px, and if you have 100% hardness it never goes soft, no matter how small you've got your brush scaled. This would be great, but I like having my brush hardness taper off when my pen-pressure is dictating a very small brush, that way I can get a more natural fade at the end of strokes. Sure I could accomplish this by adding hardness to the brush dynamic, but I don't want it changing at the same rate as my diameter. Is there a way to control things more specifically in Gimp? Like setting the effect level of each dynamic individually?
