How do I use Photoshop paint brushes in Gimp?

Question by Cora Blackwood: How do I use Photoshop paint brushes in Gimp?
I downloaded some watercolor paint brushes and they aren’t showing up when I go to use them in Gimp. Somebody please help me I’m going insane!

Here is the link to the brushes: http://www.bittbox.com/freebies/free-hi-res-watercolor-photoshop-brushes-set-ii

I HAVE WINDOWS! I also know how to add them to my brushes folder it just doesn’t seem to be wanting to work.
The download saves them as paintbrusheswatercolor.vbr and then the file type is ZIP. Should that be changed?

Photoshop brushes work in GIMP. You need to put them in your brushes folder then press refresh brushes icon in the brushes dialog, or simply restart GIMP.

Can anyone translate photoshop hair brushes to gimp?

Question by Jaunice D: Can anyone translate photoshop hair brushes to gimp?
i dont have gimp but i would really love to have the gimp brushes translated to gimp and oh the website for the brushes is: www.deviantart.com

Answer:

Answer by Geo. I
There is no software (as in an application) which can do this to my knowledge, which means each and every brush in a Photoshop brush file would need to be manually converted. Given the number of brushes which can be contained in any one Photoshop abr file, this is not a job to be undertaken lightly.

Basically, you’d need to construct a document in Photoshop which displays every brush, then save that down, import it into Gimp and then convert the brushes into Gimp format (I don’t use it, so wouldn’t know where to start!!)

This would need to be repeated for each and every brush file. A LOT of work

Hope This of Help

Q&A: Is there braces brush for gimp or photoshop?

Question by ?Elizabeth: Is there braces brush for gimp or photoshop?
I saw some girls and they made pictures and they put braces on the teeth =/ heres there profile
http://www.vside.com/app/profile/user/GaFGAA/

is there a brush to do this?

Answer:

Answer by Geoffrey
I just took a look at the picture…they just took a normal brush and drew it. There wont be a braces brush because everyone has different teeth and different angles of teeth, so it wont fit properly on pictures…so you have to manually draw them, use a small black brush and draw the outlines of the brackets, and then use a different color for the color you want the braces, then use a gray brush at a small size and change the hardness of the brush and fill it in. What I would do is use a tiny brush with the color grey and make a small dot or square used for the shine…also what you can do for the glare is use a lens flare ( in photoshop…go to filter>lens flare) I really hope this helps…email me if you want more help on it…

Photoshop brushes not showing up in Gimp properly?

Question by Specklez: Photoshop brushes not showing up in Gimp properly?
I created a star brush in Photoshop CS4 today; exported the preset to an .abr and then put it in my GIMP brush folder. The brush was a “varying” brush, if you will, (meaning it changed opacity, jittered and switched perspective a little) and worked fine in PS. When it loaded in GIMP, none of the aforementioned attributes worked! It was just a static brush. Other “varying” download brushes’ attributes work but not this one. Can someone please explain how to correct this?

Answer:

Answer by B K
GIMP doesn’t support all the .abr functions – especially any that involve rotation. I guess you just used one of the attributes that GIMP doesn’t have.

Can’t you just set the variations you require in the tool options for the brush? In GIMP it’s under Brush Dynamics in the Tool Options dialog for the paint brush. If you are making brushes for GIMP, why are you not using GIMP? If the brush you are making needs to have some rotation or varying element why don’t you just make an image hose .gih brush?

Look up a tutorial: see section 3. Creating an Image Hose in GIMP: http://emptyeasel.com/2008/10/03/gimp-brushes-tutorial-how-to-modify-and-create-brushes-in-gimp/
