Are you still running Photoshop 7 or lower? Getting frustrated about not being able to use latest version brushes? Don’t Worry, in this tutorial, I will show you how. If you have any problems, please post below, or email me (In Profile).

First Head Over here to download abrMate. Or Direct Download. (Posted Direct Download, as it is quite tricky to find.) Then Install it.

Step 1

Download or find the desired Photoshop Brush, then launch abrMate.

Step 2

Now Click Open Brush Set, then locate the brush and click open.

Step 3

Then, Go to Convert, then select, Selected Brush Set to PS7.x.

Then on the save dialogue, navigate to where your brushes are kept, usually:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 2\Presets\Brushes

“Photoshop Elements 2” Would be replaced with your Photoshop Version.

Now Your Brushes should be in Photoshop, just like any others.

Any Problems then post below or email. (Email if I don’t reply for a few days.)
