I have a Veikk tablet (my first one, I've always had Wacom) and PSE 2019. I CANNOT get my pen pressure to work and haven't since downloading it all. I've downloaded the drivers for the tablet tonight and PS today. I've since restarted my laptop too.
NOTHING is working and I can't make my manips without pen pressure; it's the whole reason I have a tablet.
The pen pressure works on the tablet, because in the Veikk setup program I can test it and check the levels. The tablet works on PS but NO PEN PRESSURE.
This is literally driving me CRAZY
Any help or ideas would be perfect! I've tried google and youtube, they all have Wacom tablets or PS CC which is different than mine.

i had the same problem and had to switch to ps cc ): windows has destoryed the old system when it comes to pen pressure, and cc is the only program to really fix it in the ps world. it rly sux tbh
Yeah it might be a Windows Ink issue. Also, would recommend uninstalling any other tablet drivers you might have if you haven't already. If you do that, I would recommend removing all drivers including the Veikk one then doing a clean install to make sure Photoshop isn't trying to use old preferences or a different driver even though you are using the Veikk.
Also make sure in Photoshop itself in your Brush settings that 'Shape Dynamics' is turned on and control is set to pen pressure if you haven't already.
Darkfall - This is a completely new laptop, everythings just been downloaded in the last day :( It's driving me crazy though! How do I check the shape dynamics in PS? I don't know where youre talking about. Also this is Elements, not CC incase that makes a difference.
this is how i do it
To turn on the workspace, press and hold (or right-click) on the taskbar, and then select Show Windows Ink Workspace button. Select Windows Ink Workspace from the taskbar to open it. From here, you'll see Sticky Notes, sketchpad, and screen sketch. Plus, quickly open the apps you use your pen with under Recently used.
haha i am so sorry sometimes i forget i need to English more correctly XD hahaha anyway
turn on your workspace (i tell you up above how to do that ) right click on the taskbar you should get the option to select show windows ink workspace .
open it you should seee sticky notes ,sketchpad. and screen sketch . plus
that should get you to the point you can check all your settings
An icon of a pen writing in an “S” shape will appear in the notifications area to the far right.
Click on that and the Ink Workspace appears. By default it includes Sticky Notes—an app that's accessible outside of Workspace—as well as some apps you may not be familiar with, such as Sketchpad and Screen Sketch
Brush Preferences in PS - Should be 'Window'(Top Taskbar) - 'Brushes' to open the brush window. One of the options along the side of the window should say 'Shape Dynamics', make sure the box next to it is checked, and open up the settings by clicking on the 'Shape Dynamics' tab. That's where you find the settings for Shape/Size jitters and stuff. Size Jitter is what you want, there is a slider, but underneath there should be A drop down box. In that drop down box, select 'Pen Pressure'.
If that's not already set, it should allow Photoshop to recognize the pen pressure from your tablet.
Windows Ink is a newer system that has been coming in to play with the new PS and Windows updates.
Do you have the small Tablet Icon in your task bar? If you have that and can access it click it, go to the area where you test pressure (since you have checked the pen pressure outside of PS I assume you know what I mean by the test pressure panel). Go to the 'Mapping' tab in your tablet controls, And there should be a checkbox there for Windows Ink (make sure that yes, the box is selected). You may have to restart your PC afterward.
