Why dont my photoshop brushes appear?

Question by Jesse Federico: Why dont my photoshop brushes appear?
I have downloaded over 2000 brushes all the .abr or .apr or whatever format. I have the full version CS5 of photoshop, and when i put them in the presets>brushes section they do not appear when i try to load them, it says there is no .abr files in the directory even though there is about 50 in there.. What is going on…


Answer by Nenad Marinkovic
(64-bit) version C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit)\Presets\Brushes
(32-bit) version C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Brushes

Just copy and paste those ABR files to this location depending which version you use.
This is for Windows, not sure for Mac address location.

I want to create logos and such but i really dont know how to draw. Can I still be great at photoshop?


Answer by InflatableEmperor
Drawing helps but you could definitely pick up good techniques. I’d suggest reading some typography and graphic design books and mimic what you see in those. That along with looking up techniques online would give you a good start. Also, it’s more of a preference/usage thing, but I’d also look into illustrator as well. Illustrator is vector based design software, which helps wonders in design on print media, especially when you need to design something scalable, IE taking a poster and blowing it up onto a billboard, it’ll still look good. It also works nicely with flash if you’re a good vector artist.

Good luck

In Photoshop, how can I give a picture jagged edges, like brush strokes? I don’t want to do this by hand.

I also don’t want the whole picture to look like brush strokes. In Corel, it was an easy setting called a creative frame. Don’t know how to do it in Photoshop, though (I have version CS2)
