I have jumped from CS2 to CS5. I am using Windows with the Vista operating system.
I can't seem to load brushes. I have loaded the .abr files in the Adobe>Adobe PhotoshopCs5>Presets>Brushes folder.
When I go to load brushes none (including the preset) of the brushes are are in the window. It says" the folder is empty." The brushes are listed at the bottom of the brush menu but there are no thumbnails of them under the brush presets.
How do I get them loaded?
As long as you are navigating to the correct folder (there might be two /preset/brushes folders on your system, one for 32 bit and one for 64 bit) and maybe you are navigating to the wrong folder. Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing when you try to load or select a brush?
I am having the same issue, although I am running windows 7. I am sure the brush files are in my preset/brush files. However,
when I go to load brushes they are not available???? I am still running my trial version does this make a difference???
You are correct, after hours of playing with this last night I finally figured it out too. I can't remember the original default path, but I navigated to the folder I had put the brushes into, and they were there. I was able to load them successfully.
I think this is a problem for a lot of people. I was checking on the web for the answer before I tried Adobe customer service. The unanswered brush queston is all over the place!!
Thanks for your help.
