Saving tool presets

I hope someone can help.
How do I save a single tool preset (not a brush by itself, I can do that okay), I keep trying and it saves a file that is about 20+ mb's, that seems quite large for a single brush preset.
I know where to save to and I think I'm doing it right, but I'm missing something???????
Thanks in advance

Peter

Re: Saving tool presets

In "Manage Presets", open the applicable preset (brushes, patterns etc.), select the brushes you want to save as a set, then save the set. You can save a single brush or a series of brushes.

Re: Saving tool presets

if they were made from images, that would explain why the preset is so large...

Re: Saving tool presets

Swampy you got it thanks. Though I still had to think about it, I was missing stuff, and was saving all Presets to one file hence the large size, now my single brush preset is 5k. Quite a difference.

Thanks again

Peter
