organizing brushes...don't know if this is the place to ask

I'm having trouble finding the right brushes to use for an icon because I downloaded a bunch of them.

How do you organize them so that you know where to find the right swirl, dotted, border, etc brushes without having to open/load every single one of them?

I finally got my textures organized, but unfortunately, the brushes are a bit harder to do so.

P.S. Mods, if this isn't the place to ask this, please kindly direct me to the right place. Thanks.

Dotted borders....


I have been trying to locate a tutorial about making a dotted line border for icons. Nothing I've tried really works and looks very strange. I checked memories and couldn't find anything particularly helpful. Any help is much appreciated :)

Question on RAR files

I'm sorry to bother you all but I use Photoshop CS3 and I download brushes/textures for my icons from time to time but I've noticed that some people are saving their brushes/textures as RAR files and I'm not sure how to access them.

I tried the memories and I couldn't find anything and I tried Google and I learnt that I need a RAR unzipper but beyond that I got confused. Can anyone point me to a free RAR unzipper or give me some advice please?

I'm back with curiosities.

Does anyone know how or know any tutorials I can use to achieve the colouring like in the icons below?

I use Photoshop, by the way. Thanks!
