Preferences: Brush Folders

GIMP uses several types of resources – such as brushes, patterns, gradients, etc. – for which a basic set are supplied by GIMP when it is installed, and others can be created or downloaded by the user. For each such resource type, there is a Preference page that allows you to specify the search path: the set of directories from which items of the type in question are automatically loaded when GIMP starts. These pages all look very much the same: the page for brushes is shown above as an example.

By default, the search path consists of two folders: a system folder, where items that are included with GIMP are placed, and a personal folder, inside your personal GIMP directory, where items added by you should be placed. The system folder should not be marked as writable, and you should not try to alter its contents. The personal folder must be marked as writable or it is useless, because there is nothing inside it except what you put there.

You can customize the search path with the buttons at the top of the dialog.


Select a Folder

Se você clicar em uma das pastas na lista, ela será selecionada para qualquer ação que vem a seguir.

Adicionar/Substituir pasta

If you type the name of a folder in the entry space, or navigate to it using the file chooser button on the right, and then click the left button, this will replace the selected folder with the one you have specified. If nothing in the list is selected, the folder will be added to the list.

The icon to the left of the text entry area will change when the folder you have specified does not exist. GIMP will not create it for you, so you should do this yourself. Depending on the icon-theme you use, the icon mentioned above will change from green to red, or from thumbs-up to thumbs-down, to notify you of a non-existent folder.

Mover para cima/baixo

Se você clicar nos botões de seta para cima ou para baixo, a pasta selecionada terá sua ordem alterada na lista. Isso só é útil para você gerenciar a sua lista de pastas melhor, se ela aumentar. As pastas são lidas em ordem, então o uso desses botões altera a precedência de carregamento dos itens localizados nas mesmas, mas todos os items em todas as pastas são sempre carregados, mesmo que o nome de um arquivo seja o mesmo.

Delete Folder

If you click on the button that shows the trash-can or X icon, depending on the icon theme used, the selected folder will be deleted from the list. Note that the folder itself is not affected; it is merely removed from the search path. Deleting the system folder is probably a bad idea, but nothing prevents you from doing it.
