RE: Brush only paints black
Does this occur with all standard gimp brushes or Is this a home made brush?

If it is a home made, can you zip and attach it, maybe someone can check it out. Might narrow down to a non-brush cause.

What is your OS and make of tablet?

Is this a PS .abr brush set. In my experience these work with the foreground colour but If it is one of the latest CS5 ( is there a CS6?) then since Ad*be are forever changing their format (called improving) could be that it does not work.

Usually big files so can you give a reference to it and I will see what transpires.

RE: Brush only paints black
Nice tutorial - thanks for the link but saving in latest gimp is different - you have to export and it still comes out as only black.

Thanks - re-exporting in Grayscale works. That's great
