Question regarding sizes of brush sets

Sommerwind / 1 decade ago (11 June 2009 07:09)

Hello everyone, I have just made my first brush set with some of my favourite fractals. There are 23 brushes in it, and because most of them are 1600 wide the set turned out to be a 30 MB file. My question is, if that is too big and if I should better split the whole pack into two or even three? Any opinion would be helpful, thanks so much! Booming love

Oh, and while I´m at it.......
I´ll be needing some beta testers as I have only Photoshop 7 and need to know to which versions the set(s) are compatible with. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! Booming love

Sed, but try increasing the size with a 25 Pixel jpg, it will look all blurry.
If you use high resolution brushes you don´t have that problem, and you could even print the image/composing or whatever. That was my thought really. I´m always glad to get some high resolution brushes, so I thought others may too. OhWell Booming love

You can upload 30MB here. If your internet connection is slow though it might time out. Booming love

Oh, I never thought of uploading it here, but now you mention is worth another thought.
thank you, kchristine! Booming love

The actual reason for my question was, that PS does occupy a lot of memory. That would be even more if you load a brush set of that size.

You have to tell me which one you would like to try, Sed! That is easier than saving every single brush seperately.

I have Photoshop 6, but I don´t think they will work with mine. When I make brushes, most of the Photoshops from 7 up can recognize them.

Teddy, I have used some of your brushes lately, and they were absolutely beautiful. Christmas trees...........yeeeeessss, I´m starting early Grin but haven´t finished yet.

I guess brushes are up-compatible but not down-compatible, would you agree on that, Teddy?
I downloaded lots of brushes that were supposed to work in PS 7, but weren´t when I wanted to try them.

Sed, you really want me to send you the whole set? 30 MB?

I will not think about a brushset of 254 kb, I can tell you that for sure.
Told you the reasons above! Wink Booming love
