    Okay, I've been trying to install a brush I just downloaded (splatter brush by wickedjess!!) and can't seem to find how to place them or where to place them.  Some things say I should place them in the .abr or a .gbr folder.  Which one do I put it in?

    or you may try putting your brushes in %D\programfiles\gimp\share\gimp\2.0\brushes folder
    where %D is the drive of the GIMP :p

    Go to C: (If thats the hard drive it's on)/Program Files/GIMP 2.0/share/gimp/(I think it has a 2.0 folder here)/brushes, and paste your brushes there. Then, next time GIMP comes up it should work... If not then they're broken or something.
