Photoshop CS6 Brush Preset Picker Problem

Dec 5, 2012 1:45 PM



I'd like to know if it's possible to tidy up my PSCS 6 Brush Preset Picker?  Please see image.


My brushes are installed here:  C:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64bit)/Presets/Brushes


I can't seem to find any other location that would be causing this issue.  It's only happened since I installed CS6.


Thanks for any help or advice

    You have duplicates of many of the files.

    And you just have a LOT of brush preset files.  Grouping them into functional files ("chalk brushes", "grunge brushes", "swirls" etc.) would help a lot.

    They are duplicates in the actual folders - somewhere you have the same filename twice.


    They'd have to be in the Photoshop preset folder, or in your user preset folder.


    The location within the preset folder doesn't matter - the organization under the preset folder is for your convenience, but Photoshop reads all the files under the preset folder.
