    Thank you for these wonderful bokeh brushes that I will use in layouts for my daughter in marriage. She is Japanese, and I’m trying to respect her heritage within my layouts that will also include my youngest set of grandchildren.

    Wht this brushes not working with Gimp 2.6???????pls help

    • Stephanie says:

      Truthfully, I’m not sure if they work 100% correctly with GIMP. These brushes are made to scatter around, and I don’t even know if GIMP has that capability.

      You can still download the image pack and get the basic images to make into brushes, though. I just don’t know if you can get them to scatter like they should.

    Wondering how to get these on Gimp? When it opens the file, it has where you click to download that and it takes me to Adobe Reader to see a message that tells me it is not a supported file type or has been damaged. Can someone help please?

    • Stephanie says:

      If you click on the “How to Install?” button just next to the download button, it explains it all. You don’t just click on the file once you download it to use it – you have to put it in the right directory, then it’ll just show up with your other brushes.

    Can your brushes be download and used in pixelmator?

    • Stephanie says:

      I have no idea, I don’t know anything about pixelmator. However, the image pack should work in any program that you can make brushes. As long as it uses the same “system” for knowing how to make brushes as Photoshop … white = transparent, black = opaque. So you could give it a try!

      • Stephanie says:

        Just realized what set you’re asking about. It won’t be able to do the random scattering effect if you just use the image pack. But if they have a scattering effect, you could add it afterward.
