How to organize your photoshop brushes so you NEVER loose a credit again.
... Okay, so really this was just an excuse for me to scribble all over my photoshop screen xD
But I do notice that no one ever remembers where their brushes come from, so I posted my method of remembering. It's REALLY effective, I recommend giving it a try. I included my downloaded brushes folder, as well, to help you see HOW to organize it. Most people just have a C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Brushes folder, but I added a Downloaded Brushes folder to that, and a dA folder inside of that one. It helps me keep organized. I also do this with my gradients, custom shapes, patterns, and anything else I download.
So don't forget to credit your favorite brush makers ever again!

Hope this is useful Sorry about my bad handwriting. <3 Dante
Lol. I do something kind of like this, except that I rename them totally in the CS2 folder, but I always save them when I download them to a folder in my documents and keep them named as the original names.
this is so useful- i recently started re-organizing brushes- i have waaaay too many- and unfortunately, i have lost track of many an artists name along the way for a lot of the brushes- now, while browsing, when i come across a brush set that i know i have, i try to go back in & add the artists name to it- it saves a looot of aggravation in the future...
so, yeah, you absolutely have to rename your brushes in a way that you will know what they are- i organize mine similar to yours- with different categories, but i'll also add a short description so that i have a better idea of exactly which "Floral- Realistic" or "Floral- Swirls" brush set it is - especially if you've got 50 different floral swirls brushes!
