Sad How do I resize brushes in GIMP 2.2.17???
Hi

Long time GIMP user but still a novice obviously! just downloaded this version at work and I cant resize my brush (Scale option) I can still change brushes to use smaller/larger ones I have, but cannot change the brush size.

I have tried to assign the brush size action to my mouse scroll wheel but nothing happens!

Please help GIMP community

Thanks

Steve (UK)

Thanks for the help. I cannot change the version unfortunately as my work has it locked down. Thanks for the info though

Just in case you come back

This from my archive (2006) gimp 2.2.11 and gtk 2.8.9 in a Win XP2 VB and stretching my memory a bit. might have a 2.2.17 somewhere but near-enough.

AFAIK there is no obvious way of changing the brush size. Make a new brush, it will go in your gimp folder /.gimp-2.2/brushes.

Use the brush editor, make a brush, keep the editor open to change the size (radius) as you go.

(remember not to close the layers/channels dialog or you might never get it back - favourite problem in the forums back then)
