Brushes question

Hello,

I am new to macs and to GIMP and was hoping someone could help. I'm trying to install an .abr files into the brushes on GIMP 2.8 and using OSX Mountain Lion. I have downloaded the .abr and am able to copy it but when I try to paste it into the brushes folder in the GIMP files, it wont let me. I have done the show package contents, resources, etc. to get to the brushes folder but just cant get it to drag in there.

Help greatly appreciated!
THanks,
Lindsay

Forums: 

into its own folder. For instance a folder on your desktop named ABR-FILES.
Now open Gimp and go to Edit>Preferences>Folders and select Brushes.
Add the path to that new ABR-FILES folder to the brush path interface. Select ok to keep the changes.
Then restart Gimp. The new brush/brushes should be available now in the brushes palette.
Remember some ABR, PAT, and other Adobe files are not compatible with Gimp.
