Converting your brush images to grayscale and removing the alpha
channel before you save as .gbr would probably help.

Yes, more and better brushes are certainly needed. Help with this
effort would be very much appreciated. There are a few brush resources
available online that might be interesting to look at. Please note
that GIMP 2.0 also loads the brush files created for FilmGimp. See for


So perhaps you want to help us to improve the current set of brushes
and other data files for GIMP 2.2?

GIMP can certainly need more tools and more features but it shouldn't
be needed to reverse engineer proprietary software for that. There's a
long list of enhancements that are completely understood and are only
waiting for talented hackers to implement them. We are really not
short on good ideas, we are short of time and developers to implement
