I've been trying to get an account on here for a while, it wouldn't let me, but now it did somehow... Anyways. This is my first, topic, as well as my very first post. Please don't flame meh! Heres how to get PS Brush packs into usable PNGs that the "Draw with Custom Brush" tool can recognize! http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/psbrushes/ Biggest Photoshop Brush Collection Here First download abrveiwer.net here: http://abrviewer.sourceforge.net/ (Luigi Bellanca) And the Custom Brush tool here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=23093 (sabrown100) Unzip it and run the executable inside. I suggest that you make a new folder somewhere to keep all your PNGs in. Open your brush pack (.abr) Once they've all loaded set your thumbnail size to 500 (Sorry I have mine at 700 in the screenshot, but I just learned that 500 or 1000 works the best) Click [Export>Thumbnails] and save them in your brushes folder. Go into PDN and open up your Draw with Custom Brush tool. Click "add brush" at the bottom. Pick your brush, wait for the plugin to write it's new brush list and have fun! OR Add all of your brushes at the same time. Go to My Documents>Paint.net User Files>Custom Brushes Select which brushes you want to add in a different explorer. Drag the selected PNGs over to your user custom brushes folder. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
