  • Brush Problem

    I've got a small problem with some brushes, not on my PC but a friends.
    I tried to give this friend some brushes, that work fine for me, but when they install on their comp, no go unfortunately.
    I'm using CS2 (XP Pro) and my friend is using PS 7. (Vista)
    I didn't think there was a problem with brush compatibility between the two versions of PS, but could be wrong.

    1) If there is a compatibility prob, is there a work round that could be used?
    2) If not, how can I recognise the prob before sharing in future (both versions use ABR Files)?

    In hope....

    There some hair brushes and some other high resolution brushes that do not work in older PS programs!

    The work around I use is: Use ABR Viewer (available here) Find the brush set or brush I want to convert for use in PS7... Export the thumbnails and save what I want... load them into PS... have each brush on a separate transparent layer.
    Then define your own brushes.. Simply turn on one of the layers and go to edit>define brushes. After this, your brush will appear in the brushes pallet. When you get all you want save a set

      Thanks OB I've just DL'd it and will check it out.
      The only thing is I think this would be okay for the brush 'images', but a lot of the brushes had textures and other dynamics along with them, so was hoping not to have to make a note of all these things. (Big Big job, lots of brushes in the set).

      Just a thought can these settings be saved as a file and How? - open question to anybody that knows?????

        This is a frustrating problem for us still using ps7. brushes made in a newer version dont work on lesser ones. As far as i am aware ones made in ps7 will work on newer versions.

        That is a great tip though Ol Baldy, Shame about the settings although not a great many use them ! !

          Hello All,

          Can anyone tell me in which of PS CS2's brush collections I would find the "Spatter Brush". (Note: I said Spatter not Splatter). Mine doesn't seem to have it

          Oblong Brushes
          by W. Rose
          I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this but it was the closest i could find.
          Anyway, my problem is that my brushes have turned to a oblong shape in photoshop instead of round. Does anyone know where i go to correct this problem.
          Thank you if anyone can help

          Soft Round Brush Problems
          by ThosDowling
          Hello everyone!

          I am having an issue with all my soft round brushes in Photoshop CS5, and am using a Wacom Intuos4 on a Windows 7 (64bit). I've reset all my settings in Photoshop, and have just updated my Nvidia PhysX driver and my Adobe programs to see if they would resolve the issue...

          PS changing brushes mid-workflow.How do I stop it?
          by skoobey
          So... um one of those silly questions.

          I never really work with special brushes(I mean I do change scattering, pattern, transfer and shape dynamics, but all using the default round brush).

          What keeps happening all day today is that PS switches between brushes while I am...

          Creating brush tip... how?
          by pjstaley
          I saw in someones palette a brush that was not the typical hard round and soft round that is default to photoshop. It began as quite small, then progressively got wider. How was that brush created, or is it a default brush in photoshop? If so, did they put it in an obscure folder somewhere on the disk...
