HOW TO INSTALL PHOTOSHOP BRUSHES

 

In all of my brush sets, I have included an instructions sheet, to help you on your way. If you still find it confusing, you can follow the below steps.

 INSTALL BRUSHES ( The Old Way )

  • Go to Edit > Preset > Preset Manager… then select the Brushes preset type. 
  • Click Load… then locate the file ending in .ABR, and click open. 
  • Your brushes will be available to use with the Brush Tool in the Brushes Panel (Window > Brush) 

OR USE THE DRAG & DROP METHOD ( Photoshop CC )

This method is a great solution if you find your .abr files are giving you trouble with installation. ( Greyed out. ) 

  • Open Finder ( on Mac ) or Explorer / File manager ( Windows ) and find your file.
  • Make sure you have Photoshop open.
  • Double click on the file and it should automatically load into Photoshop.
  • OR Drag the .abr file down to your Photoshop Icon. 
  • Open your Brushes presets palate, and you will find your brushes there.
  • Video following the below will take you through these steps!
