"Open brush as image" from .ABR file?

Post#1 by enxio27 » 21 Feb 2020, 03:22


I have several sets of brushes in .ABR files, which GIMP has no trouble reading as brushes. However, when I try to "open brush as image" (which is NOT greyed out), I get an error message, "Unknown file type". How do I get around this?

Click and drag, from the brushes dock into the Gimp toolbox. For a Gimp brush you might need to lose alpha and change to grayscale before saving as a .gbr

Otherwise if you have lots of abr brushes there is a free Windows utility that will unpack and save to png format. https://abrmate.software.informer.com/1.1/

Both worked like a charm, although the AbrMate generates an error (not insurmountable) when I select "Close selected brush set". "Close all brush sets" works fine. It's really nice to be able to pick and choose which ones I want to convert, too.
