Can't Open New Brush
Posted 15 December 2007 - 02:58 PM
I did open the PSP folder by mistake and of course those didn't work, but I've deleted that folder to avoid doing that again, so I know these are PSE brushes I'm dealing with. What am I missing?

Make sure you have Adobe Reader on your computer. You need that in order to read the PDF instructions. (It's required for any PDF file.) Having the other software or Word won't help.
It is free. You can get it here:
When you have the Adobe reader on your machine, as soon as you double-click on the file, the Adobe Reader will automatically open the PDF for you to read.
That's what you need because there are step-by-step instructions with screen shots and everything. Once you see them, you'll know what to do.
If you happen to have just a particular file, though, that won't unzip or everything in it is acting weird, then it is likely that the download of that particular file was interrupted. The way to fix that is this:
1. Delete the file off of your computer
2. Download the file to a DIFFERENT location on your computer. This is critical because Internet Service Providers cache downloads. They do it to save themselves money. If you don't change the download path, they will send you the same file they interrupted (not our file... their interrupted version of it.)
If you are simply trying to open the .abr file, it has to be installed in that folder - the Brush folder in the Presets. The PDF instructions show you exactly how to do that.
Let us know if you need any more help. We're glad to help you out!
