After the recent update, all of my previously downloaded brushes were deleated. Any and all attempts to download those brushes and any new ones only result in the files in my downloads folder being ABR files. All of my in progress artwork is unable to be completed as I no longer have any of the necessary brushes and tools. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any solution? I am using the most recent and updated version of Adobe Photoshop.
Try importing each individual .abr file in the Brushes Panel, go to the fly out menu and go to Import Brushes... and select the .abr file over there. You will liekly have to do it for each .abr file individually.
