I emailed the developer, Jay, about my disappointment that Brush Pilot does not have a print function. Since it has a print choice in the menu I thought it had a print function, even though the button is disabled. I emailed him because I thought I just couldn't figure out how to enable the print choice. When he emailed me back that there was no print function in version 1, I told him that I would not have bought it if I had known that and I requested that he add that information to his website so potential future customers could be more aware. In response, he sent me a very nice email apologizing for the confusion and he refunded my money - which I had not requested. I thought his response was really above and beyond what I expected and what he needed to do in the situation. I was really surprised and quite pleased and wanted you all to know how he supports his customer base. Hanna

I love BrushPilot - it's an indispensable tool for Photoshop users. Customer support is fabulous! I contacted them asking when to expect an update to support CS 6's enhanced brush sizes and within 24 hours I'd received not only a reply, but a beta of the updated product! Can't beat that!

Awesome utility. Exactly what I needed.

It seems to be exactly what's needed. You don't want PS opening all the brushes when loading. And...even if you're very organized, it's hard to remember exactly what all the brushes look like and what their size is.

Brush Pilot is a wonderful find for Mac owners! The description claims instant previews of your brushes and it delivers! As a retired graphic designer I have thousands of brushes scattered over several external hard disks. Brush Pilot finds them quickly, gives a clear preview, and even shows me where the brushes are located. I had a slight problem because of the large number of brushes. Jay worked tirelessly with me (even over the week end) to fix the problem. He patiently gave concise directions until everything was working. His customer support is the best I have ever encountered for any software! I am very thankful for such a useful Mac application!

I downloaded the trial from their web iste and it failed to work on my system crashing as it opened. I reported the problem to them and recieved a prompt reply from Jay who asked me to sumbit an error report and gave me the instruction on how to. The information was passed to the developer who promptly fixed the application. In the meantime Jay had sent me the previous version to be getting on with. I have to say all mail was promptly replied to and I have not come across anyone more helpful. The app itself is simple and does exactly what it says on the tin. I am pleased to have found this app and only signed up to MU to write this review - keep up the good work!

I contacted Brush Pilot Support late Monday evening because the update, version 1.1, for the program was not searching for the brushes on my hard drive despite having followed the instructions on the site's support page. By Wednesday afternoon, I received an email from Jay with instructions complete with screen shots for testing for a possible bug. When I emailed the results back, I received another response that Jay was forwarding the problem to his programer. The best, however, was receiving a custom version in less than 24 hours which completely solved the problem. Jay also included an explanation of what was happening. The customer service from this company has been excellent for a great little program for previewing brush files for PS or PSE.
