    Brush Stroke issues

    When I paint in Painter i get square brush stroke edges. I'm aware of the damping function however it doesn't seem to work. I have not reinstalled the software as I do not know whether I can reinstall it without having to buy it.

    Can you please post some screenshots and maybe check your spelling to make your post a little bit more readable?  Thanks.

    Let's all make an effort to type words correctly, use capital letters where appropriate, and remember you're not "texting" here.

    Notice both posts needed editing in order to be readable and to have correct/complete spellings and other punctuation.

     

    Now on with the issue at hand.

    Cheers!

    how to I take screen shots;? I've pressed print screen and tried to paste it here but it won't appear' anyway since at the moment I cannot take screenshots i will discribe it by word, when i paint with any brush apart fro chalk and pastek' although they might be affected too however I am not noticing it, I pixalated strokes , a visual example could be a video on my youtube channel [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWfk6u3yPeU&context=C357499cADOEgsToPDskKQz_rKAzgWxohJVEXB0YYZ] hope this can be resolved as painter is my first ever digital art program, and I enjoy it alot, the pixalated edges are off-putting

    I suspect for the type of edge you are looking for you may need to use a vector program, or try to make your sharp edged areas using the shapes function of painter. 

    Painter being a raster prorgam may be a bit more difficult.  Try using some of the pens and the liquid ink brushes for the drawing and the softer brushes of the tinting.

    What you see as pixelation is normal for many of the painterly brushes.

    I can't really see anything from the videos (unless you can tell me a time on the video where the issue appears) but do you have High Quality Display selected? If you select the Hand or Magnifier from the toolbar these two icons will appear on the Properties Bar. The one highlighted should be selected (blue).

    (By the way - see this post for ways to attach an image to your post).
