Spiral 1 Brush Pack for Photoshop or Gimp

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (31 votes)

Here is a spiral brush set that I've had laying around for some time that I figured I should share. This brush set contains 10 various spirals that are mostly a cartoon or hand drawn style. They remind me of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas or something! I hand drew them on my Wacom tablet and converted them into brushes quite a while back. Two of the spirals are kind of funky ones made with many dots that look neat. These brushes range in size but are mostly 1000 - 2000 pixels in size so they are fairly high resolution. The download contains a single .abr file created in Adobe Photoshop CS5 that contains all ten brushes. This brush set works in Gimp as well. Let me know if you like these and if there is any interest, I can share plenty more!

Ok so I downloaded the swirls

Ok so I downloaded the swirls but it basically just opened up as a picture. How do I get it to go to my adobe so I can use it as a real brush. Or is that a stupid question ...I am new to all of this. Please help!

Hello, what you need to do is

Hello, what you need to do is place the .abr file in the download inside your Adobe installation folder under Presets and then Brushes. It will be something like C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Brushes

Restart or open Photoshop and now it should recognize your new brush set! You can also always just load the .abr file from within Photoshop using the Preset Manager if you can find that.

These are among the best on the web, and your AbrMate application is WONDERFUL as well! You should really try to show it to Adobe into making it a plug-in!
