importing .abr 7 into gimp?
Posted 13 August 2009 - 09:59 AM
I was trying to import some brushes from PS to Gimp but apparently abr files newer than version 6 won't load. Is there anyway to convert them? I know there's abr to gbr converting tool but I don't need another bunch of gbr files in my overgrown brush collection. I think Gimp 2.7 can import or will be able to import those files tho I'm not into using unstable realese.
Any help will be much appreciated,

Stupid questions to troubleshoot and you probably already thought of them. But did you refresh the brushes? And restart gimp, and make sure you didn't accidentally put them in the wrong folder?

Were can I get the specifications for CS3 & CS4 file formats? I need them so that I am able to import the newer versions (7) of abr brush preset files into my application.
I found that on Adobe forums but without any answers.

Problem is that is not even a simple type so some ABR 7 may be read by gimp other not, and i do not think that the script may help
Only way i may imagine to use not compatible ABR will require the use (at least temporary)of PS CS3 to open them and save a copy in a backward compatible format ( abr 7 are not even usable from older version of PS, but they may converted to be backward compatible...converted with PS CS3 or CS4)
Then there are literally millions of brush created for Gimp and other millions of compatible ABR brush..personally.i will not lose time to search to convert them
