    Chance of using Photoshop Brushes?

    ribery75

      Hi folks,

       

      is there a chance or workaround using the great amount of fantastic Photoshop brushes in Fireworks CS4?

       

      Kind regards from Germany

          A workaround might be to export the images, one at a time, and create a new common library folder with them. The steps are as follows:

           

          1-Open a new Document

          2-Open the Common Library panel menu and choose New Folder.

          3-Give the folder a name

          3-Add a brush image to the document.

          4-Export the document to your new folder. On my machine that's located at C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks CS5\Common Library\My New Folder .

          5-Repeat for each image you want to add to your folder

           

          To use them, drag and drop them from the new folder in the Common Library panel

            Hi Linda,

             

            thank you very mch for your answer!

             

            But I think I didn't get ya;-( What do you mean with "Add a brush image"? All the Photoshop Brushes I know are in the .abr-format which I only can open with Photoshop.

             

            By the way: Today I got the info that Fireworks CS5 (it seems that you'r one of the lucky Beta-testes if I look at your Folder-link:-) can handle Photoshop brushes!

             

            Kind regards

            Thomas

              I meant drop an image from a brush in Photoshop, and then export it. Follow the rest of the instructions from above. That was meant to discourage you, by the way. I hate Photoshop brushes. :-)

              I can't say. :-)
