Changing Brushes to colour
Can someone please tell me how change brushes to paint in colour. I have downloaded quite a number and the screen shots before you download them show them in colour but when you go to use them they are all grey scale. Thank you

Otherwise provide the URL to download the brushes so we can check them out.

Thanks for the reply. Here is an url of a typical download. Nearly all that I download are in fact showing as grayscale, but as I say, all of the sites show them all in colour.
Maybe I am saving them incorrectly to .gbr? Do I just save them by exporting them or is there another process. I have downloaded from a number of sites now and all but one of them is in grayscale. I did download one of a cartoon character, but that one
was imported in rgb color with the transparent background?
