How to download brushes - GIMP by Kiza-San How to download brushes - GIMP by Kiza-San
Aaaand, here's my second GIMP tutorial ~

I've actually had a lot of people asking me how to download brushes, so I decided to make a tutorial real quick about it. C:

And it didn't even take that long!
( Even if there were 30 + layers in this damn thing x_x )

like I said in the closing, I dunno what to do for my next tutorial.
Suggestions? 8D

Edit IF YOU FIND THIS TUTORIAL ISN'T WORKING FOR YOU -
I am more than happy to try and assist you in figuring out why it isn't working. However, I need you to say more than "lol this doesn't work" so I can figure out what's wrong x_x Please make sure you read read read read the whole tutorial - don't just goggle the pictures - before asking me for help; chances are you just skipped a step on accident xD;

re-edited to move this to the right category.

I'm having some problems XD When I open my gimp file, there is no folder called brushes. I already tried creating a file titled brushes, and that didn't work (duh) so can you please help me?

After the step about the lovely extraction wizard(XD), it says to open the zipped file. I did that, but I'm not sure what you mean whhen it says to open up "My Computer"Do you have to open up "My Computer" as a new tab? Other than that, this is really helpful!! This is the farthest I've got with any tutorial. Thanks! You saved my life! (I hope.) XD *sniffs* Please help!!!!

I have them all in a folder (not the original zip ones, if that matters) and I refreshed the brushes twice, none appeared. Does that have to do with the fact they aren't in the original folders? :o

My suggestion:

~Make a tutorial on how to make your own brushes then get them on DA for others to download^^


That would be REALLY useful^^

Lol i download my brushes much differently, i click download, open, copy all the brushes, go to my gimp folder then my brushes folder and paste there, no matter if its zip or not. Works for me, anyways, thats not important, im not critizing the way you download either. Could you maybe do a tutorial on how to upload your own custom brushes onto dA for others to use? If you know how, of course.

Love the tutorial ;) clear, easy to understand, good screenshots xD.

Hey, whatever works for you. xD

And I'm afraid I don't know how, I've never made custom brushes for others. xD; I'm sure there's a tut somewhere, though~

thank you very much!

Hopefully you will be able to help me...I need help with this...I download the brushes but then when I try to use them on GIMP the brushes pop up as pictures to draw on....Maybe you can help me if you can that would be great and I would appreciate it <:3

Are you sure you saved them to your brushes folder, and not like a template folder?

I saved them to my brushes folder but I am not sure that if when I save them they automatically add to my brushes or if I have to open them....But I tried to open them but the my pc said that there were no brushes in the file

Kiza-San Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2011
Well, if you refresh the brush dialog box they should appear there. That or if you open and close GIMP again...
