Support & FAQ On Using Photoshop Brushes

How To Install Brushes

  1. Download brush.
  2. Unzip the .zip folder you recieved. On some operating systems, you can right click on the folder and select extract all. On others you will need a program to unzip the file. Ultimate Zip will work just fine (it is free).
  3. Place the .abr file in your brushes folder. Usually this is located in the Hard drive > Program Files > Adobe > Photoshop 6.0 > Presets > Brushes. It may be different.
  4. If you have photoshop open, close it and restart it. Select the brush tool, go to where the brushes are, click the arrow that brings out the flyout window, and select the .abr file that you downloaded. It will look something like jenni001_something.abr. Select it, and you are now ready to use them.

How To Change A File Type On Windows
This should allow you to use Photoshop brushes on Paint Shop Pro

  1. If you cannot see the file type of the photoshop brush file (.abr), do this:
    1. In the folder that contains your brush file, go to Tools > Folder Options. (Located at the top.)
    2. Click the view tab.
    3. Uncheck the "hide file extensions for known file types"
    4. Click OK
  2. Right click on the folder, go to rename, get rid of whateverfilename.abr and replace it with whateverfilename.jbr

General FAQ
Can I use your brushes on Paint Shop Pro?
I've heard you can, but you will need to change the file type from .abr to .jbr.

Can I use your brushes on a graphics program other then Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro?
I really doubt it. Programs like Microsoft Paint, and Photodeluxe (you know, that crappy CD Rom you get when you buy a printer at Wal-Mart) are not really made to handle something like special brushes.
