    Some advice in Gimp?

    Okay, so I just downloaded and installed the Gimp on my laptop.
    I used to be able to do this, but how do I add PS brushes into my gimp.
    I try to follow a few steps, but i'm completely lost in moving the brushes into the gimp folder.

    EDIT-
    I'm on a laptop, not a desktop.

    Become a wind, unfathomable distress. I'll hold back your loneliness.

    Place your downloaded brushes into
    C:/Program Files/GIMP/share/gimp/2.0/brushes
    Click refresh the brush tab and your Photoshop brushes should load in GIMP instantly.

    i dont think u can add ps brushes ... they have to be converted to a gimp brush... Devientart has loads of brushes but ur best bet is to go onto the likes of youtube and type it in im sure it would come up id have looked for u but my school computers are crap were blocked off nearly everything.....¬_¬

    actually equinn you can. the newer versions of gimp can read ps brushes, .abr files, i should know, all my brushes in gimp are photoshop brushes. you need a gimp 2.4+ to be able to use photoshop brushes

    Yeah that would be easier unless you know what your doing. You really got to start using GIMP again.
