Brush settings for Photoshop brushes help
Hi. A few months ago, I bought a book that had some Photoshop brushes on its CD. Inside the book, each brush had some vallues written under description, for Painter and Photoshop. I have heard that Gimp can import Photoshop brushes but are the settings equivalent to the pnes in Photoshop? Here are some examples of what I mean:

Brodery - Opacity: 70-100%
Flow: 50%
Shape Dynamics:
Size Jitter: 0%
Min diameter: 0

or

Canopy- Opacity: 100%
Flow: 50%
Shape Dynamics:
Size Jitter: off
Angle Jitter: 0%
Roundness
Jitter: 73%
Minimum:
Roundness: 62%
Texture: Wrinkles
Scale: 45%
Texture Each
Tip: On
Mode: Multiply
Depht/Minimum
Depht: 100%
Depht Jitter: off
Diameter: 110px
Spacing: 15%
Scattering: Both
axes: 0%
Count: 1
Other Dynamics:
Opacity Jitter: 0%
Flow jitter: 0%

Could all these settings be done in Gimp? Are they equivalent? How to use them?

Dual Brush:
Diameter: 110px
Spacing: 15%
Scattering: both

Many settings are not static and can change while you draw according to several factors (speed, length drawn, randomness, or pressure if you have a table). See the brush dynamics..

So actually all the parameters above can be used in Gimp, with the same effects? Does Gimp have any limitations? Will a value applied to a Gimp dynamics parameter, same as a Photoshop parameter, have the same effect? Marta Dahling gave some settings in that book for Photoshop and I want to know if they could be adapted for Gimp.( using the same vallues)

You most likely can emulate (get similar effects) with Gimp, I like off's "GINP" XD
So just play around with the brushes/settings
(you'll never really know until you try),
I have a good example of how the jitter settings can work in gimp here:

Thanks. I will start experimenting to see what I get.
