Default If you are ISO a Mac Brush Manager...

For Mac users (sorry Windoze ppl) who have a lot of Photoshop (Elements) brushes - Brush Pilot (written by the fellow who runs Bittbox) is on sale (for a week) for $12 (normally $25). I was happy to pay $20 on a Black Friday sale a few years ago.

When I didn't have that many brushes, the free quicklook plugin Brush ViewQL was fine
http://brushviewer.sourceforge.net/ (and I still use it when I just need a quick look at a particular .abr file whose location I know).

But (thanks to digiscrapping) I've now got a bazillion brushes scattered across multiple folders on two drives, so I can't do without Brush Pilot. It works very well and my only complaints are that 1) it doesn't quickly tell you the brush size (the info is there, but not quickly available) and 2) if you, like me, run as a nonadmin, permissions issues can keep you from using the program's built-in "install in Photoshop" command (definitely not a deal breaker - I just use Brush Pilot's "reveal in Finder" feature and install by double clicking the abr file).

System requirements 10.5.8 - Mavericks

I used to have a great brush organizer mac but it stopped working years ago, this sounds interesting. I'm going to check it out. I have brushes all over, definitely could use help in keeping tabs on them. :-)

I don't usually use many brushes, and since I was a windows user had not thought about it. But I think now would be good to have a viewer for Mac. Many thanks for the information
