Okay, so I'm writing down my entire computer directory right now to know all the files so I can mess around a bit. But when I get to the GIMP folder they're empty, now I know there are files in there I'm just not sure how to access them... If I could get some advice possibly that would be great, I'm hoping to mess around with my computer more in the future but first I have to learn it inside and out!


E.g. GIMP/Brushes - No files at all.

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

Gimp doesn't actually install any brushes, it just creates a folder ready to accept them so you don't put them in the wrong folder.
You have to download brushes & place them in that folder yourself.

For the same reason, other Gimp sub-folders may also be empty after installing it.

You can downlaod brushes for Gimp from third-party websites since Gimp is an open-source graphics-editor.
Therefore, anyone with sufficient knowledge can make add-ons for it.
There's a collection of Gimp brushes here: http://free-brushes.com/gimp/

Alright, thanks, I've been trying to figure out how to view hidden folders for the past couple days. I suppose I was a tad bit wrong, thanks a lot!
