This is a beginners tutorial for those having trouble installing brushes in Paint Shop Pro.
Several people have had trouble installing the EyeLashes and Lips brushes that I posted several weeks ago. I apologize for not going more in-depth on how to install the brushes. Hopefully, this in-depth tutorial will assist those that have had trouble installing the Lashes and Lips brushes. . This tutorial will walk you through the entire process of unzipping the brushes, and what directory to put them after they are extracted. NOTE: IF you are installing a different brush set, just substitute PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes.zip with “thezipfileyourworkingwith.zip.”
Download and install winrar from this link. NOTE: Winrar is a rar and zip file manager. It allows you to easily zip and unzip files.
With winrar now installed, go ahead and download the
eyelashes and lips brushes. NOTE: Remember the location/folder where you save these eyelashes and lips brushes.
The file you just downloaded is named PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes.zip, Go to the folder where you downloaded that file. For example, if you chose to save it in My Documents, your file will be located in My Documents.
Now, right click on the PSP Lahes and Lips Brushes.zip and select “Extract to PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes.”
Once the files are extracted from the zip file you will see a folder in that same directory named “PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes.”
Right click the “PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes” folder and select copy.
Now, browse to this directory on your computer -> My Documents/My PSP Files/Brushes. Inside the Brushes folder right click and paste the “PSP Lashes and Lips Brushes” folder you copied in the previous step. NOTE: “My PSP Files,” is a directory located under My Documents, where Paint Shop Pro looks for brushes, plug-ins, tubes, scripts, etc., when it loads up
Close Paint Shop Pro if open, and restart it.
Now go check out your brush tips, if you followed this tutorial correctly they should be available to you. Enjoy!

i have installed the eyelash brushes fine but i cannot get the eyelshes to fit the eye? the warp push tool + move tool just move the who pic not the eyelash???
Did you reduce the size of the brush on the paint brush toolbar before you applied the eyelash?
i left u a comment on youtube regarding one of ur videos, but now i dont need help with that. Though im having trouble understanding Setp 7 please help :):)
Just copy and paste the entire unzipped “psp lashes and lips folder” in your My PSP Files/Brushes folder.
To get to My PSP files. Click on My Documents. Then you will see a folder named My PSP files. Click on the My PSP files folder. Inside of My PSP files you will see a folder named “Brushes”
Click inside the Brushes folder. Paste the lips and lashes folder..
This is the directory that Paint Shop Pro looks for new brushes when it loads..
Let me know if you need anymore assistance.

ya i was wondering where do you get the lashes in after you have downloaded them i cant find them on corel
i swear after i copy the extracted file. i dont know where to put it. i’ve tried everything saying lashes and stuff uner my documents. but nothing makes it pop up on corel.
pleasee help me
I did everything but nothing happened
Im not exactly sure where you find this, but somewhere the is an option called “mirror” use that to get the opposite eye 🙂
THNX for these tools. They are a wonderful complement to anyone doing stylized work or glamour. Work great too and very easy to control.
How do you get the lases to stay on the picture? lol.. i know that sounds funny. maybe im just doing something wrong. hmm.. When i click to put the lashes on a photo…it just creates a faint black spot where the lases would be. (as if i were using color legacy to create make-up). Do i have o select something??? please help… i know you have a lot of people asking a lot of questions…and im sorry.
Your TuT’s are really good, but im unable to create new brushes ( or atleast i got a bit problems with that). So I would like to have some help pls. Okay I went to the link to that web site where to load those eyelash/Mouth brushes. But when i download them they are everything else than a ZIP file.. they are in abr file…which make it impossible to use it in PsP x2 or as I found it..
To sum up a bit..
I need maybe another link for where to download brushes..or smt..thx
i did that but when i tried to import themit says “A file with the name “eyelash2” already exists.Please choose another name but it says it on all of them

for some reason it wont work,
i have downloaded it and everything, and when i open it up onto paint shop pro it looks nothing like the print screen,
on my psp, when i open it, the eyelashes appear ar the bottom but on a photostrip view, and when i click on an eyelash or lips, it just comes up as an image, with a white background.
i really want to apply the eyelashes normally 🙁
will you help me please?
or get back to me asap?
Well I thought everything was going well, I closed paintshop down and now it won’t open up again, what’s up and how do I fix it?
Hey quentin, and anyone else who has the issue of “how do I get one brush to work for both eyes”,
I wanted to let you know, when using the eyelashes brushes, create eyelashes on their own Layer, ( raster layer ) you can Mirror Image on which ever one is neccessary in order to have it fit the eye correctly.
For Instance, make one eyelash highlight that layer that it is on, go to Image and click on Mirror, then create the other eyelash on that same layer,(might be a good idea to be viewing your whole image with rulers visible so that you can tell how far apart the eyes are and therefore how far part the eyelashes need to be, while making these eyelashes) Hope this helps,
Love and Snuggles (as I always say)
is there only suposed to be 1 eyelash brush for the right eye?

Do these brushes work in Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7? I have tried doing everything exactly as you have indicated and cannot get them to work on my psp7, so i figured i would ask if they were not for psp, maybe someone had these brushes that would work for Jasc Paint Shop pro 7?
thank you so much.
Its still not working. I’ve got corel paint shop pro photo x2 and this is the second time i’ve tried. i’ve imported it regularly and the unzipped way. i’ve also tried to go through file and click import custom brush, last time it let me do it. this time it says the brushes are already their…and the ones that say script instead of brush, in the file type, won’t upload at all. so it says its there but i still cannot access it. some one help me please?
dangit.. its still not working =[
I can not get them to load up it keeps saying error?
Thank you very much, these are the best set of brushes because they are very useful and save me hours of time.
Now how I resolved some installation problems..
The biggest problem I had was to make these brushes available after installation, I had all the same problems that others had until I realized Paint PSP X2 was looking in the wrong folder for the files because I have a partitioned hard drive, thus 2 my documents folders. I simply copied the unzipped files to the second my documents folder and ALL PROBLEMS WERE RESOLVED.
Be patient, itâ€™s worth the effort these brushes take a little practice to use, but keep trying and you will soon improve your skill.
I would like to see someone with experience using them, and explaining how to resolve the many problems involved in making them look glamorous whilst retaining a natural look. I think the eyes are the most important aspect of glamour photography.
I have PSP seven. All the good brushes are for 8 and above. Is there anyway to make the newer ones work for 7?
I did exaclty the thing that stood there, but they won’t come up in corel paint shop :/ or, the lips thing worked, but my other brushes don’t work. i can see them in the folder ‘brushes’ but the problem is that they don’t show in corel.. any idea why? 🙂
I did exactly what you instructed on my x2 and got zilch.
You are so awesome for sharing this information. I just downloaded x2 and was flipping out because I thought it would have the eyelashes. Thank you so much!!!!!
hi.. be familiar with creating layers to fit the eyelash and lips using warp brush….
I managed to complete Step 1 then when I completed Step 2 it never came up with what it looks like in the tutorial picture, it just saved to my computer. Ive been trying for almost an hour, but nothing seems to work. WinRAR downloaded successfully so now im really confussed. If you have any tips could you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org any help would be really appreciated.
Ignore the above commentit worked! 🙂
Hi I’ve installed these but they appear as black dots. i’ve resized them before adding them to the image but all that happens is that they turn into smaller dots. Help?
I have been trying to do this for agessss because I didnt know how to do it with WinRar. Thank you sooo much 🙂
Download worked fine, but all the eyelashes are for one side! How do I flip them for the other eye?? Thanks for the the download 😀
How do I put on the right eyelash…it only comes with the left…is there any way to flip it?!?
thank you soooooooooooo much….it worked!!
I love basic step by step guidance….xxxxx
I just have to say thank you so much. I have been lookin for eyelash brushes forever. I enjoy using them they are gorgeous and am very grateful that you have chosen to share them with the world 🙂
Thank you again!
i’ve been trying to install your eyelasses and lips for awhile now and cannot get them to go in anywhere. i’m usin pspx2 and when i go into the psp file to look for a brushes folder there isn’t one. I also tried the method of going to file>import custom brush and it would only allow me to import one lash at a time and was not able to find where they went when inside how would i find them. if that’s what it takes to get them in fine but, where are they located.
Check your default brush directory it may be different or has been changed sometime in the past. Open up Paint Shop Pro and go to File > Preferences > File Locations to view your default brush path.
This works great! Thank you for the step-by-step instructions. This is wonderful.
Ok, so I dl’d winrar, dl’d the brush file and it automatically unzipped using winrar?
i then followed the rest of the instructions and cant use the new brushes =/
running windows vista and paint shop pro 7
hi! how do you flip the eyelash to put it on the other eye?
Most of the files are corrupt when I go to extract them. I was able to use a few of the eyelashes and they are awesome! I am running windows 7 for home is there something that I need to do because what works is awesome and ty! I have uninstalled and reinstalled the winrar too 🙁
OMG! I’ve been trying to do eyelashes for over a year and could never get it. Thanks for your step by step tutorial… I finally got it!!!
Your Comments I have been unable to download your eyelashes & lips brushes.Could you please help

Irene, updated the download link to winrar in the post too. http://www.win-rar.com/download.html?&L=0
