How to Install Photoshop Brushes

Installing Adobe Photoshop Brushes [.abr] Files

  • Installing these 'abr' brush set files is easy. You simply need to copy the file to the correct directory. If you downloaded the brush set in a zip file, you can just extract the 'abr' file straight to the right place.
  • All you need to do is copy and paste that .abr file to Photoshop program folder, [under the subdirectory 'Brushes']
For example,

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7\Presets\Brushes\

  • Simply copy the file there, and the next time you start Photoshop, the brushes will be available from your brush set menu.
Also there is a software called .abr viewer to view all photoshop brushes without installing them;
