Star Some help please brushes look smudged and messed up
Hey everyone, alright so i get this problem often, I love gimp but this happens to much (but hey at least it brought me to these forums). Sometimes (Alot of times) ill go to put a brush down and it comes up all smudged and messed up looking, other times it works. Here's a pic of the error.

I really have no idea how to handle this so it would be very helpful if someone can give a hand. Thank you for your time.

RE: Some help please brushes look smudged and messed up
Are these Gimp or photoshop brushes? Otherwise how were they created?

I notice that the smudge is square-ish at places and the squares have a 8-pixel dimension (same as the smudge width...), which make me think at the "block" in JPEG images. Have these brushes been extracted from some JPEG?

Can you post a link to one of them?

PS: JPEG compression shows up a lot in your screenshot, but there still seems to be a previous JPEG compression problem on your brush. Pls use the PNG format for screenshots: there is no pixel loss and we get exactly what you see. If needed either work on a small sample image(*) and/or provide the relevant screen extracts.

(*) reproducing your problem on another image will help you characterize it, and you'll often find the fix yourself that way.
