A lazy mouse feature in PS would be great. (like the one in Zbrush)

There is an external program called Lazy Nezumi, but this only 'works' on PC, & not on Mac (sadface)

Trying to use a Wacom to animate in Photoshop on a Mac, would be so much improved with a brush stroke smoother.

Flash and Illustrator both have this option, as do Corel Painter, Sketchbook Pro, Paint Tool SAI, Fire Alpaca, Krita, Gimp and others.

It seems really weird that Adobe don't seem to have prioritized this feature.

Sure Flash is built for animation but I want to work with bitmaps, not vectors, and Flash still has that stupid brush-stroke-doesn't-scale-with-zoom behavior.

This thread is 3 years old now - come on Adobe, please? You're supposed to be the best!

You do understand that we have thousands of requests from millions of users, right?

If you want a feature, tell us why and vote for it. But don't get impatient while we implement all the other feature requests ahead of this one.

I purchased Lazy Nezumi pro and am very happy with it :)
that being said- I agree that photoshop should come with this kind of native functionality. Another suggestion - adobe might consider purchasing Lazynezumi pro and adopting the functionality into it. (why reinvent the wheel?)
No, I'm not in association with LN, I'm just a fan of their product.

I suppose it because that photoshop positioned like a photo edit software, not a software for drawing.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled True painting smoothing (picture inside).

it would be nice to truly smooth out your drawing strokes,
"much like in illustrator"
you should be able to set the amount of smoothing you want
