Converting abr's to png's 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
Over at DiDer, there was a discussion about converting abr's to png's. I have found one called abrMate which is fantastic. A lot more user friendly than abrviewer (this I tried after someone suggested it and it stopped working)as it just works with abr's (the other one worked with patterns and styles too). You can easily open and close brushes. When you export them to png, it automatically puts them in the same folder as the abr came from. Also, when you go to open up another abr to convert, it will open up in the last folder you used (something the abrviewer did not do). So I have gone through everything today in hierarchy order of all my scrap supplies and converted everything!! It's easy peasy!

I wish I had done this a long time ago. Jessica has certainly inspired me to use brushes as often as I can in the DiDer class. Just awesome! Now I can see all the brushes at a glance before loading them!

Go try it out, you will be super impressed!

I just need to go and tag them all now in ACDSee!

Wow, Sam!
Thanks for letting us know about this software. I think that I was the DiDer classmate who recommended ABRView. I will certainly try this one based on your description of the advantages.

It's completely independent of PSE or photoshop. It is a standalone .abr viewer that also will convert brushes into .png files.

It sounds good, but it is only for Windows, not Mac.

I believe that the new ACDsee views just about everything type of file now. I was surprise that I could even view my fonts. The one thing I do not like about the new version of ACDsee is that if you every have to move a file from one folder to another you have to complete the move through ACDsee or the tags will not remain on the item. I'm still working with the new version and seeing if there is a way around it. I'll keep you posted.
