Where do I save my Brushes on Windows 10?
I looked in:

But there's no Brushes folder.  Is it somewhere else?  I just need to know how/where to save my custom brushes.

I'm moving from Photoshop, because I'm sick of the fact that Photoshop won't let me create full color brushes to simulate stamping with tranparency.  It was GIMP or Paint Shop Pro, so I'm trying GIMP first. Smile
What version of Gimp and where did you get it?

However, it should be C:\Users\James\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\brushes (not Local)

You can check the location for your Gimp profile if you look in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Brushes

Note that Gimp has several types of brushes.

1) .vbr
parametric vector brushes

2) .gbr
static (single layer) brush
2a - grayscale
2b - rgb

3) .gih
animated (multi layer) brush
3a - grayscale
3b - rgb

4) .abr
photoshop brush, similar to 2a above
Not all .abr brushes work in Gimp

grayscale or rgb - set in Image > Mode

grayscale: white will be transparent; black will be foreground colour; gray will be semi-transparent foreground colour. NB don't use any transparency here; use white for transparency!

rgb: as created ie white is white, black is black, red is red, transparent is transparent
