  1. if the brushes your downloading are zip files, that just means they’re archived. winzip or winrar can open these, they’re free downloads if you dont have them. open the zip file and extract the files anywhere, and then you should be able to load them fine.

  2. Here’s a little more detailed information about dealing with zipped (.zip, .rar, .sit) files. You, obviously, need to unzip them before you can do anything else…

    If you are running Vista: double-click on the zip to open it, then either click on “Extract all files” or drag and drop the files somewhere outside the zip window.

    If you are running XP: You should have extraction software already on your system – try right clicking on the file and selecting expand or extract if it is listed. Have it extract to where you are or where you can find it.

    If you do not have those choices, you need to download software – there are many free applications. I really like ExtractNow. It’s basically Unzipping for Dummies 😉 Here is a link to a safe download from CNet. http://www.download.com/ExtractNow/3000-2250_4-10038365.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10871941 It is free. It is easy to install. Once it is installed, you just launch it, drag your zipped folders into it and click Extract. It’s great because you can extract multiple files at once.

    Then open up the folders/files that were extracted and look for the .abr files to install in Photoshop.
