Hello, i have recently bought Artrage 4, and along with it, i've bought photoshop brushes as the program says it is compatible with running photoshop brushes. I have spent 10 dollars on various photoshop brushes and i'm extremely disappointed to fight out that this program doesn't work with the photoshop brushes that i've bought. I'm pretty much stuck with the crappy pre-made stickerspray brushes that came with Artrage 4 because anytime i try to "import photoshop brushes" in the sticker spray section, i get this:


I'm starting to get really impatient with this program now, and i need urgent help with solving this issue. How can i get the photoshop brushes that i recently bought to work with this program? Or am i truly screwed?

Photoshop brushes with .abr file extension will work in AR, however those with .tpl extension will not. The .abr brushes work like stamps and you can set the properties via the Spray Variation Panel. .tpl is a Photoshop tool presets file which stores more information than the brush presets do and is not compatible with ArtRage.

You can also create your own brushes and import them from the Art Supplies forum (or anywhere else people have uploaded them, e.g. http://artrage.deviantart.com/gallery/46917576/Custom-Brushes-Stickers-and-Tool-Presets ), so you're not stuck with just the premade brushes.

Here's a basic tutorial on adding a new sticker spray: https://www.artrage.com/sticker-sprays-1-creating-a-custom-sticker/ (with more links at the end)

Here's where you add a brush image from Photoshop (you will still need to customise it to act the way you want in ArtRage via the Variations panel)
