I recently created somthing I intended to use as a brush and saved it in the .gbr (that should be what GIMP uses for brushes if the program itself is right.)Where do I need to move it so it appears as a brush on the program itself?

For me, it's: C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\brushes

It may be slightly different for you, but the GIMP folders should be the same.

If you're running a 32-bit Windows Operating System the "(x86)" Program Files won't exist so just use the standard Program Files folder.

Although if you have Linux I have no idea...

Clouds beat me to it. :P But ya, put it in the brushes folder in the share file. It will be right there when you restart the program.

Though your probably running Windows, I'll go on and put how to it in Linux, just because. In case.

Go to your home folder, press Ctrl+H to show hidden files. Find the folder .gimp-2.6 (or what version your using). Find the brushes folder in the gimp folder, and copy your ABR files there.

Go to "My Computer." Double-click "Local Disk (C:)." Keep double-clicking through the folders, in this order: Program Files, GIMP-2.0, share, gimp, 2.0, brushes. This last file is where you need to move your brush to.

Thanks.It took me a while to get the brush working prorperly(I need to use a transparent background next time I make one from the start.), but I did, and this brush is ripe with options.
