I make my own brushes in PS and they show up in the brush pallete but i want to use them on my laptop. They're not in my PS folder for brushes?

Can anyone help?

thanks Dianne

I assume you have Photoshop on both machines, and that the brushes work correctly on your PC.
When you say they don't show in the folder do you mean the one on the PC or the laptop. If it's on the PC you need to find which folder they've been saved in. Do a search for files with the .abr and when you find that folder copy the custom brushes within across to your Laptop in the same folder and the laptop version of Photoshop should see them.

Thanks Pete, I have PS on both and my brushes are ok, I just want to take them away with me. I'll do a search. Didn't think of that. :O)

My friend said you can save them individually by clicking on the bottom button on the menu straight from the brush palette. Not had chance to try this yet either.

thanks again for taking the time. Dianne

Yes that's another way, open the brushes that you want to save and save them to your desktop. The originals will still be save in their original folder.
