Description of BrushView QuickLook PlugIn 1.1

Edit by Brothersoft: BrushViewQL allows you to see the Contents of Photoshop brush files. Now you no longer need to load a brush file into Photoshop to see its contents.
These files typically have a .abr suffix.

Installation

Copy the BrushViewQL.qlgenerator file into one of the following locations:

~/Library/QuickLook

or/Library/QuickLook

The first location installs the QuickLook Generator for just the current user. The QuickLook directory may not exist in the Library folder. If it does not, Create it first.

The second location installs the generator for all users on the machine.
The BrushView QuickLook generator is only supported on Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5).
It is a Universal Binary.

Usage

Select a .abr file in the Finder, and press the space bar to invoke QuickLook. A window will be displayed containing the contents of the brush file. The actual size of the brush file, in pixels, is shown beneath each brush image. Resizing the window will InCrease or decrease the size of the brushes. However, some scaling can occur and brushes that are very small may appear pixelated.

Below is a screen shot of BrushViewQL previewing one of the brush files that comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.

BrushView supports three different version of Photoshop brush files -- versions 1, 2, and 6. It only supports displaying brush files that contain bitmaps - it will not render vector-based brushes. No other information than the size of the brush file is displayed.

Troubleshooting

If you are not seeing previews of the brush files once the .qlgenerator file has been moved into one of the two directories above, try the following things:

- Log out and log back in

- From a Terminal window, run the commands:

qlmanage -r

qlmanage -m

- As a last resort, try restarting the computer.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
