    The file type is not recognized by GIMP. It needs GBR, VBR, or GIH. This is AVR. Is there a way to change the file type so that it works with GIMP?

    • Stephanie says:

      I’m not sure what an AVR file is, but if that’s what you got, you either downloaded something else or your extraction program did something wonky. This is an ABR file. It’s made in, and for, Photoshop, but unless GIMP just made a change with their very last version, you can absolutely use an ABR Photoshop brush file in GIMP.

      As a last resort, if you can’t get it working, download the image pack instead. Those are the JPGs that are used to create the brushes, and do you can just make those into GIMP brushes to use them. But they absolutely should work as-is.

      Hope this helps!

        I apologize my finger slipped. I meant to type ABR. I clicked the link above that says download and then unzipped that to my GIMP brushes folder. When I follow the GIMP tutorial on how to use new brushes, it just says that it cannot recognize the file type of ABR. I will attempt to use the image pack, although I have never created a brush before so I don’t know how well I will do with that XD

          Yeah… I realized it was probably a typo after I wrote my reply — oops! The tutorial you’re looking at may be an old one. Long ago, GIMP didn’t allow the usage of Photoshop brushes, but they have for a while now. Just install it the same way it says, and it should work.

          If it doesn’t, you’d have to look for a tutorial on how to create brushes in GIMP (if it’s as easy as it is in Photoshop, it’s just one click), then use the “image pack” download instead (it’s below all the buttons, in text).

          Best of luck, and sorry I can’t help more! I don’t know GIMP at all. But there’s tons of tutorials out there that should be able to help, and the brush file itself should definitely work once you figure it out! :)

          I actually figured out my biggest problem and after I corrected it, it works like a charm! Now if only I could make the rest of the face look nearly as good as the eyes! XD Thanks so much!

          Awesome! Glad you got it working :)
