Adding downloaded brushes to my gimp brushes

I've downloaded brushes for gimp but I don't know how to add them...I've looked at the documentation on adding to the personal brush folder but I don't know how to do it.


What version of OS do you use? In Windows Vista/Win7, it should be located in your user directory

C:\Users\{user account}\.gimp-2.6\brushes

You may need to refresh your brushes afterwards. Open you brushes dialogue window and click on the refresh button. Or, just close GIMP and re-open it again. :)

I've refreshed and closed and re-opened....I think I may be doing something wrong but I'm not sure how

Check preferences under the brushes folder to see if it is writable (enabled).

It would be helpful if you also answered Lyle's question about your OS, because it does make a difference in location.

I don't know what an OS is

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Ubuntu, Mac, etc


I finally got it. Thanks :)

Does this mean your brushes are working now? Or you got what OS means?

yep they work. I, for some reason, thought that I had to have the GIMP window open and add the brushes through the preferences brush folder.
