I seem to continue running into issues when trying to load presets. 

I've downloaded a number of presets from reputable sources but every time I try to load them, I run into some sort of error. Most recently is the error mentioned in the subject.

  • I've tried going to Edit>Presets>Preset Manager but the only dropdowns I get are Contours and Tools. 
  • I've tried dragging the file over and the error above is shown. 
  • I've also tried to move the files over to the Preset folders in the Adobe library folder and that does not seem to do the trick. 

Please help.

Found a somewhat related post that suggested I drag the file into the app icon, which seems to do the trick!

Hello, there is a maximum amount of brushes that can be loaded, maybe you have reached the limit...

Hi, quick question?  Can you clarify 'app icon'?  

 

I'm fairly new to Adobe, and am having the same issue with a purchased .asl file that I can't seem to 'get into Photoshop'.  I get the same error message as you did above.

 

Driving me nuts, any help gratefully appreciated

Thanks for the response.  Neither.  My Photoshop is a new acquisition, and I only have the brushes that came with the system.  Dragging the file to the icon doesn't work either.  

 

I'll keep digging and reading - there must be a fix somewhere.

Hi, Sally, some of the shortcuts do not wrk the same way, I think that the ones from the Windows Taskbar might behave differently from those in the start menu.
