Metadata Cache File

I'm stumped. I am trying to find a brush and did a search in all my computers' drives and attachments, and found the "brush" I wanted - yet it's labeled as a "Adobe Photoshop file browser medadata cache file"... when I double click it launches to Photoshop, but nothing is there.

So, what is a metadata catche file? I read on the web it's to identify parts of a picture, but all I am looking for is a little heart brush I used in an old pic! Can one use these files, or is it taking up space? I'm slightly confused, and hate being so!

Thanks for any insight!

Importing frames in CS4?

I've looked through the tags and memories and I couldn't find anything, so I'm just going to go ahead and ask. Apologies if this a completely stupid question, but I'd like to make an animated gif in Adobe PS CS4, and I have no idea how to import the frames as layers. I have everything capped and set up, but I don't know how to get them from the folder to an icon. I suppose I'm just not looking in the right bit, but I don't really know what to do.
Any help is greatly appreciated! :)
this is more than my road to redemption

icon tutorial: 001 feat. alona tal

•icon tutorial 001: pinkish/brownish coloring
»so, i've been browsing a lot of icon help communities, coloring_help etc etc over the months. thereby noticed that, of course, there's a whole lot of requests for specific types of coloring. so i thought i'd share a couple of tutorials every once in a while, for specific types. this is a lighter, more pinkish style!

coloring 001: feat. alona tal
program/translatable: icon+brush done in photoshop cs4 extended, haven't tried it in other programs. requires a program where you have access to doing curves and color balance layers.
.psd: if requested! :)
difficulty: 7 steps on, i'd say easy-medium level. there are quite a lot of detail quirking in the coloring, but i wouldn't say it's hard, per se.
