    You might also want to know how to download brushes, and that's a little more confusing than fonts, so I'll try to explain without being confusing.

    When you're downloading brushes and fonts, make sure GIMP is closed. The new brushes and fonts won't show up if you already had GIMP open before you transferred the files.

    1. Download the brush set.
    I get a lot of my brushes from www.deviantart.com, but there are also other sites you can download them from. Save it to your desktop so it's easy to locate.

    2. Unzip the files.
    On your desktop, double click the file, click 'Extract All Files' on the window that pops up, and keep clicking Next until you get a new window with the extracted brushes. Leave that window open. You can close out the old windows with the zipped files.

    3. Open up the Brushes file.
    Start > My Computer > Local Disk ( C: ) > Program Files > GIMP-2.0 (or whatever version yours is) > share > gimp > 2.0 > brushes.

    4. Transfer the brushes.
    Open up the window with the unzipped files next to the window with your brushes. To save time, click and drag a square over all of the unzipped files, which will highlight them all. Then click on any of the highlighted files and drag it over to your brushes. You're done!

    Hope that helps. ^-^
