New brushes disappeared
I added some brushes for the first time. When I opened GIMP the next day the brushes weren't there. What did I miss?
Thanks

RE: New brushes disappeared
edit>preferences>folders that is where they disappeared

Then I tried this http://photoshopbrush.biz/gimp.htm

They didn't even show up, and when I tried to open the edit>preferences>folders, when I clicked on the triangle next to folders it wouldn't show anything.

I dragged GIMP into the trash and downloaded the newest version, I'm on a Mac btw. The brushes still aren't showing up when I put them into the brushes folder.

RE: New brushes disappeared
The page you reference seems to give good instructions to put the brushes in the Gimp installation tree, but really the best place to keep them is your Gimp profile. Unfortunately, I've never used a Mac so i can't tell where your Gimp profile is Sad

Edit/Preferences/Folders/Brushes normally lists two directories, the one in te instlltion tree (the one the above page tells your to use) and one in your Gimp profile. Are these directories there? And if you navigate to them with your file explorer do you find your brushes in them?
