View Full Version : Can't upload

04-12-2018, 04:13 AM

Felt like sharing some custom brushes but the .prs files are too big and the upload manager won't let me upload a .arpack file.

Any suggestions for putting the brushes here for others to access?

How about sharing a link from a Google drive or something along that line? Dropbox? I sometimes share files/images from Google Drive and make it a public link so anyone can get it.

Thanks, for sharing DO!

At best that is a temporary solution ... links will become broken if I change cloud storage solutions etc.

This leads to a very problematic and precarious way of sharing things, where the ArtRage community has no guarantee to have continued access to things.

I suggest the size limits on the .prs files be increased to take into account the fact that custom brushes take more memory. (mine are about 150Kb each)

Ambient Design could do much to help out the "At Supplies" section, and the ArtRage community by also allowing .arpack file uploads as well.

just my humble opinion.

what happens if you compress the file into a .zip it might reduce the file size?

.zip is not a valid file type for upload...

Painted this with my custom brush. The brush is my homage to square canvas 2 is meant to be versatile, natural feeling, and easy to use, and it currently has 4 very similar variants. I call them the SquareMess brushes because of their loose sketchy washy quality which is what I was going for.

The sketch below was made from memory only and used two of the four brushes as a test. I think the brushes passed my test. Looking forward to sharing someday!

Seeing as though the upload manager wont allow you to upload your brushes what happens if you share the brush head + grain for us to download and take a screenshot of each page of settings and we can copy it. Seems like a really long way of doing it though!

hopefully the amazing Artrage team can allow .arpack to be uploaded soon

why don't you try Deviantart? i found a lot of AR files there to dl....always worth a try?:)

Hopefully the amazing Artrage team can allow .arpack's to be uploaded soon

I second that!

I wonder what the file size limits are for images.

My brushes are only about 150kb each!!

Hi, seems like a good request, I have added those additional attachment formats. Try it now. An example below...

This download includes custom inking presets for the Gloop Pen, Airbrush, Watercolor Brush, Felt Pen, and Ink Pen.

Inking Preset for ArtRage 5 (arpack):

Under ArtRage 5 - Go to File > Install Package File and browse to the .arpack file to install the presets.

Inking Presets (artbx):

1. After installing the package file, go to View > Toolbox Panel.
2. Open the menu in the Toolbox and choose 'Load Toolbox'.
3. Browse to the .artbx file to open it

Hello WebRage:

I have 8 brushes now in my brushpack, each is 140-190kb and when I export from ArtRage in an arpack it comes to 1.5 Mb.

Would it be possible to up the limit on .prs filesize? (or even maybe arpack filesize?)

I would try to share it using a third party cloud service but there would be no guarantee the link wont break or files go missing.

Unfortunately we've tried raising the limit before and it causes slowdowns on the forums so we're not able to do that right now. Thanks for sharing your brushes, sorry we can't expand the upload size limit!

There's always the option to include links to file storage/cloud services! I just hope someone likes the brushes... cheers!
