Question by Reehanna: I cant install photoshop brushes on vista.?
Okay so i downloaded quite a few brushes for photoshop cs2 and i put them in the right folder but when i go on photoshop they dont show up can anyone help?

As long as they’re abr files and they’re in the right folder it doesn’t matter what the operating system is.

New brushes will usually appear at the end of the Brush Selector dropdown. Click on the Brush Tool, then in the Options Bar click on the Brush Selector and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list.

If they’re not there, click on the load brushes icon (looks like a big arrowhead) and see if they’re listed there.

An easier way to keep your brushes handy and safe (especially if you ever have to uninstall and reinstall the program) is to keep your new brushes in a separate folder on the Desktop or somewhere easy to find. Then open Photoshop, go to File Locations (which is usually at the end of the Edit menu) and just tell the program where to find your brush folder.

How to install Photoshop brushes on Windows Vista…?

Question by Leis: How to install Photoshop brushes on Windows Vista…?
Whenever I try to download a photoshop brush on Vista, I am denied.
The message that pops up says,
“Error: Access is denied.
Cannot create (file names)
Adminsitrative privileged may be required.”
My account is an Administrator account as I am the only one that uses this computer.

How can I change this so that I am able to download the brushes???

I hate how finicky and difficult Vista is.

Why don’t you download GIMP it is a carbon copy of Adobe Photoshop
It has more brushes than you can shake a stick at.
It is a true desktop illustrator.
