I can export as a jpeg (as the tutorial suggests) but when I try to then import the newly created brush image, my file box only shows PNG's, any idea why or what I might be doing wrong?

I am a rank amateur at brushes, but I have made some image brushes and found that they could be created and worked properly when I made them from a PNG which had been Saved Without Background.   Perhaps you could try that?

Like @jmwellborn I too am a rank amateur regarding the creation of brushes but I think they need an alpha channel which JPEG does not have.
