Just downloaded some free smoke brushes and can't get them to work in cs6 im on a pc.They loadup ok but when i add one to a black background the brush is solid and has no transparency to it.Am i missing some settings?
Download and unzip the brushes.
Create a new file (I used Photoshop Default) and click the brush tool.
Go to the brushes palette, load your brush ABR file, select one of the brushes, and voila, it looks like it works.
The problem is likely a setting on your end or a problem with the download. Try downloading again?
Seem to have fixed things for now it's only happening with new brushes I have downloaded.the fix is to not load the brushes but to replace them ie only load the brush I need not add to the brushes already in my pallet
Steve, that's a little odd. What version are you using? I'm on CS3 on this machine (its the one I tested it on). I haven't tested CS6 (it's at the office), but I add brushes at least every month to some degree and I haven't seen that. Maybe talk to Adobe?
