cannot get new brushes mac

I have been trying to follow the tutorials, but have not had any luck. I downloaded a new brush with a ending of .png. I am running MacOS Sierra. I just downloaded GIMP and want to add some brushes. I am completely perplexed after trying to find files and such for the last four hours. I am not a super tech expert so do not know how to dig into code. Is there an easy way to do this? I think I was able to export and change them to .gbr and I thought I finally found a brushes folder to put them in (they are in there), but nothing shows up on the main program.

Help!

A png is an image file and not a Gimp brush.

The Gimp brush types are something.vbr, something.gbr, something.gih and also some photoshop something.abr

There is an 'older' article here: worth reading for details http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entry/gimp-add-ons-types-installation-management

You can use your png as a temporary brush by copying (all or some) it. It then appears as the 'clipboard' brush - very first in the brushes dialogue.

As you found can also export the png as a Gimp .gbr brush, export to the Gimp profile brushes folder and it is saved for future use.

The Gimp docs on exporting: https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-using-brushes.html

Gimp profile for a Mac: (always baffles me as a linux user)

/Users/{your_id}/Library/GIMP/2.8/brushes

or possibly /Users/{your_id}/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/brushes

In Sierra, the second path: /Users/{your_id}/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/brushes

The easiest way to get there is from the Finder, top menu “Go” select “Home,” then Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/brushes.
