Having a brush preview when loading brush sets would be a nice feature.

I work with hundreds of brushes, some of which are second party and are only named by number. It would be nice when I go to load brushes If I could see a preview of the brush before I select it. I understand that the load option utilizes the OS of the computer rather than an in program method, but is there a way you could add a brush preview internally?

Would be a superb idea if you could have the preview when browsing it in Bridge, Also for patterns, gradients, shapes etc.

We do think alike! I raised that very same suggestion in this thread:

I installed ABRView sometime back but didn't find it all that useful, and would prefer that a preview was integrated into PS.
