.gmp brushes won't paint in color?

.gmp brushes won't paint in color?
So I have been cleaning out my brushes and I had converted some brushes from .arb to .gmp a while back.

I noticed that the brushes that are under the .gmp extension doesn't allow me to paint with it in color. Even when I have a different color selected, it will show up in black.
I don't have a problem with the brushes that are in .arb.

Is there a way I can fix this? It is a pain to do the whole Layers -> Transparency -> Alpha to Selection every time I want to have a brush in a certain color.

Must have been way back, never come across a .gmp brush Wink

A PS .abr brush might be a single brush or could be several brushes in one file. Whatever it is Gimp .gbr brushes are exported from a single image.

If the image is grayscale it takes the foreground colour. If the image is rgb then it is fixed with the image colour.

example. [Image: YkNMPMC.jpg]


You can open each brush in turn, check the colour mode is grayscale and re-export as a .gbr brush
