GIMP arrow and cursor brushes 09/22/2009

17 sets of arrows and three cursors (a total of 72 brushes) for GIMP.
GIMP arrow and cursor brushes project consists of 17 sets of arrows and three cursors (a total of 72 brushes) to put in your GIMP brushes folder.

Arrow brushes is my small payback for using the great GIMP program.

I had a hard time (actually impossible) finding any arrow brushes for the GIMP.
But .gbr files are easy to make, so I spent two days of my life making these arrows
(and a few "cursors") as my modest contribution.

Use them for anything you'd like. If you redistribute them, please include this file.

I post these, and perhaps make updates, at All the items will also be included (in png format) at, the Public Domain clipart site.


Stick them in the GIMP brushes folder and either "refresh brushes" or restart the GIMP.

I put them in the system-wide folder, on my Slackware machine this folder is located at: /usr/share/gimp/2.0/brushes

You should also have a local brushes folder at: ~/.gimp-2.x/brushes

On Windows this should be: sharegimp2.0brushes
