Photoshop: alt+right click drag resize opacity lock

Would be great to have an option that will lock opacity when resizing my brush with alt+right click drag, There is one for brush hardness, but never found one for opacity!

weird, i've never seen the opacity change when resizing a brush... maybe it's a Windows thing?

possible, it's this alt+right click drag resizing, it left right movement is for resizing, and up down will change hardness, but if hardness is turned off it will change opacity

I couldnt agree more. That's definitely a must have "feature". I find it weird that barely no one asks for it. Maybe almost no one uses the alt+right click for brush size. If locking is too hard to implement, an easier way would be to lock the change based on initial direction. So dragging left/right would lock to brush size, while starting with up/down movement would lock to opacity.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Option to Lock Brush Opacity when using "CRTL+ALT+left click" -shortcut !.

When I'm paint with Photoshop I use "CRTL+ALT+left click - drag left right" shortcut to adjust the size of the Brush. I never (or very very rarely) touch to the Opacity adjustment. I try to keep it in 100%.

But when using "CRTL+ALT+left click- shortcut" it is very easy to accidentally move your cursor a tiny bit upwards and degrease Opacity to 98% or 99%. This is very annoying, especially when using eraser. 

We need option to lock opacity. Or disable Opacity control with CRTL+ALT+left click" -shortcut.    

There are several request for this option in this forum. This shouldn't be very hard to implement.

Tool Opacity Lock. Using keyboard commands (OPT+CTRL) to change Brush Size (Stylus L - R) it's way too easy to accidentally change opacity (Stylus UP - Down), especially when masking when many size, shape changes are being made. Please add a lock between Mode: and Opacity:

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop - Lock brush opacity, flow and hardess permanently.

So, when you are working with mask, using brush tool, there is huge need to lock opacity, hardness and flow, to have perfectly masked edges.

Now, when there is no such an option to permanently lock this settings - there is a chance to mess this settings by accident and all work is ruined (specially when you change opacity to 99% and after masking all object, you discover that all masking work is messed.)

And this changing by accident is very simple to do - just change size of brush (in a rush) by alt+right mouse button + drag left/right, and move mouse slighty up/down by mistake.

I hope my idea is clear.

yes please, every other program i used had a very similar shortcut that allowed to resize with click drag, without worrying of accidentally changing opacity while doing it

Is this issue going to be resolved ever? I've had this problem for years and seems other users have had it too. I constantly catch my brush opacity slipping to 99% while resizing the brush. Adobe seems to come up with countless new gimmicks aimed at the casual user and this simple problem remains( to my knowledge) unresolved.

This is terrible and can't understand how it can't be fixed. Disabling features shouldn't be terrible hard.  

I spend an hour to fix the marks left by "99% Eraser" on last book cover I made.

I spent half a day with support trying to find a way to officially flag this problem. All I get, apart from useless suggestions for workarounds, is a link to a "request form", which leads me to this forum, where this issue has been raised 5 years ago.

The only reason I haven't switched to another software is that I have been working professionally with Photoshop for over 15 years and I am dependent on this workflow for speed and efficiency.

Adobe, however are making this move to another program easier with each new version, as they keep adding pointless new features, which slow me down until I get used to them. 

There goes my morning rant, falling on deaf years again.

The more we rant, the more it will get possible that someone would notice it :) At least I hope. 

This would be so easy to fix.

Registered here just to bring awareness to this problem. I have ranted about it with every other illustrator I know. Please, can someone at Adobe work on this already?

We're just asking for a simple CHECKBOX for god's sake.

Disabling features should be very easy task. 
I have actually started to think if I could write a plugin for this :D 
I don't have slightest knowledge about PS plugins, but have done some coding in other contexts... Usually you get simple thing done if they are doable in general. It just takes a huge amount of time and googling.

@leozon I can not understand why it is still not taken care of. After that much time. It's been going on for years now.

Hi, A good thing is posting about the feature request in a forum or social network where you would explain the issue and invite others to vote...

So I'm starting a new book cover and I already know this will cause problems and I have to clean up my drawings afterwards...  

Can we have FIX for this? Adobe? It is not hard.
Just add option "Vary Opacity based on HUD vertical movemen"  there. Should be very simple and easy to implement.
