Help! I downloaded a brush set but not all the brushes have loaded.

Hi all,

 

I am hoping you can help as this is driving me insane... A friend uploaded a tutorial on hair painting.. and also gave us the link to the brushes, however when I load them into Photoshop only 4 of the brushes show. She advised me to close photoshop and open it again but nothing, I even uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled it and still no avail.

 

Does anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks in advance

    Open Windows Explorer > Organize > Folder and Search Options > View > Show hidden files, folders or drives.

     

    Then navigate to

     

    C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC (or whatever version)\Presets\Brushes

     

    Copy your .abr files to that folder.  They will show up in both 32 and 64bit versions of Photoshop.

     

    This is a handy link to bookmark:

    What photoshop version both of you are using? How many brushes are supposed to be in the set?

    What are you starting with?  You mention a link. Post the URL here so we can see what is going on.  Is it a Zip file?  Can you see aerarate .abr files?  Are you perhaps being denied access to the presets folder?  Do you have Admin rights?  Do the .abr files show in the folder after pasting them there?  Can you see .abr files in that folder that do not appear in Photoshop?

     

    What version of Photoshop?  Pierre is absolutely right, and we should have asked that from the outset.

    That download contains a single brush set with the following brushes

    If you friends had additional brushes they came from somewhere else.  Deviant art has countless brush sets for instance.

    In fact you can see exactly how many brushes there in the set, and how they work, in the image at the top of the page.  Nice brushes BTW

    I don't think your changes will stick unless you save the set, so reset to the Standard brush set, and then re-append the Skin and Hair brushes, and they will be back to their default settings.

     

    There are thousands of brush sets out there, all searchable via Google.  Deviant Art and Adobe Exchange are the best sources I know of.  Or you could include 'Jared Castro' in your search parameters, or maybe easier to just go ask on Jared's facebook page

    What sort of thing are you looking for?  What sort of work do you do?

    There's room for comments after that link.  Ask there where the brushes you are after came from.  It's 3.30am here, so I'll try and find them tomorrow.

    Link please?  Those hair and skin brushes were pretty good, and we like to share here.

    Thanks.  I nearly missed it as well.  Not as good as the other set though.
