Plenty of freeware download sites are now hosting abrMate. I'd like to keep the official place to get it on texturemate to always provide the latest and greatest version. I guess all of the downloads at other sites are helping it's popularity right?

So far so good with abrMate!

Thanks for writing this little piece of software! Very handy for just checking out my brushes one by one and seeing what I actually want loaded, etc. One feature that would be cool that Brush Pilot does is to scan your 'installed' brushes directories to tell you which brushes are currently loaded and which ones aren't. This is a great start and version 1.0 though!

abrMate doesn't like when I move my brush files around

I've noticed that abrMate has issues when I have opened brush files in it, then I move them to other folders on my PC. If I go to preview the brush or anything in abrMate after moving the brush, it says it has an issue reading the brush?

It would be great if abrMate could convert cs4 or cs5 brushes to ps7 versions

Do you have the ability to convert brushes at all? More and more people are creating them for new versions of Photoshop and it is leaving us Photoshop 7 users in the dust. It's getting harder and harder to find old brushes so being able to convert them would be nice.

abrMate 1.0 Released!

Well I want to apologize for not releasing as many textures, brushes, and patterns lately. It's because I finally decided to write a freeware Windows application for viewing, organizing, and exporting brushes to .png's. Go ahead and check it out if you're interested and remember this is version 1.0! Texturemate users can submit feature requests and bug fixes from their Profile Page.
