Photoshop brushes -SOLVED

Post#1 by RJKD » 26 Feb 2017, 14:23


Am I missing a trick? or being typically 'Richard'? Once again I find a Gimp tutorial I think is worth taking and part of the resources are .abr brushes, I've never been able to use these in Gimp, is there a way to? or convert them to a .g or .v Gimp brush? :hammer_head:

I have .abr brushes in a subfolder under my user brushes_storage folder. I can "activate" them thru Ofnuts' addonCollectionManager-3.0.
Just activated now for you.
Since Gimp 2.4 they are supported directly by Gimp.
This is a BG "Painted" with .abr animals brushes

Thank you dinasset, I just put the brush set into a folder in AddOnManager and they work fine (more than can be said for my brain!) a whole new vista dawns for me.

A little academic these days but you can open a PS brush set (.abr) as a graphics file (File -> Open) using a old plug-in abr-brush-loader.

Why would you want to do this? Usual reason, export a single brush (a layer) as a native Gimp .gbr brush, maybe after modifying it a little.

Where can you get this plugin? I compile my own for linux, but Windows users try
http://registry.gimp.org/node/8643 which I assume is 32 bit and
http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13433 for a 64 bit version.

A screenshot as an example:

Thanks Rich, when I tried to run Abr Brush Loader I got message - can't open libgimp-2.0-0 dil is missing (I'm reluctant to re-install for 2 reasons, I am frightened of loosing various 'add-ons' I've collected and that knowing me I'll cock it up completely, however, I must trust those who've trod before, what action would you (an open question) take if you were me, not so bright on the tech side?

Was that the 32 bit plugin? - It is old and that error message will come from an updated and recent Gimp.

If you have a 64 bit system then Rod's version might work.

Anyway, I added that for interest, useful if you have to trawl through lots of abr brushes looking for a particular one.

If you need to make a single gimp .gbr brush, then the obvious, set the brush to its natural size, .abr brushes tend to be large. Stamp on a (grayscale) canvas, crop to size, export as a .gbr brush.

Yep, 32 bit. I am considering updating my machine, it would seem a lot of modelling and other applications require 64 bit. I would really appreciate any suggestions as to what machine would a good idea, I only really use my machine (levono laptop, cost around £300 about 4 yrs ago) for my plays on Gimp, visiting Gimp forums and image/resources site online? - open question.

I feel that you'll get the best bang for you buck,
by building your own machine.
Building your own PC isn't as difficult as what most people think.

Building a desktop pc only requires these parts.
not including the operating system.
  • Case
  • Power Supply
  • Motherboard
  • Processor/CPU
  • CPU Heatsink
  • Memory/RAM
  • Hard Drive/Solid State Drive
  • DVD or Blu-ray Optical Drive (Optional)
  • Video/Graphics Card (Optional)
  • Sound Card (Optional)
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Monitor
There's a great website called pcpartpicker.
Where you can build a system before you go out and purchase any parts.
Check this website out, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from this site.
