Can I use these brushes in AP?

Yep! raster sets should be fine...Vector versions AD only (different personas)

Only issue is 1.7 versions not backward compatible..but you can open any in AD 1.7; but not 1.7 brushes in 1.6 versions

Stuart; thank you sooooo... much for posting your resources; just what a neophyte dabbler like me needs to get me going.:)

No Problem...hope you enjoy using them..Project Sets are more varied and would be a good starting point rather than downloading all the sets.

I’m new to AD (iPad) and have a lot to learn.  My primary goal right now is to learn as much as possible, and this will really help me a lot.



Thanks for looking at the thread..Project Set Poison would be a good one to play around with if you are trying to understand the brush engines s they are a mix of both types of brushes. 

Consider that brush creation methods will change 'slightly' with the introduction of 1.7. There are a  few sets arranged in the format of multiple layered brushes..Project Set 8 Organics and Vegetation set 3...other wise..Hope you find them useful.:)
