.abr brushes


Recommended Posts

Hello, lavon,

When you click on "Import Brushes...", select on your hard disk the folder where the brushes to be imported are located. If you have downloaded them from the internet they are normally in the "Download" folder (for Windows) unless you have defined another destination folder for your downloads.

Open Affinity Photo start a new document, go to the folder with the Abr file in it and drag the Abr file onto Affinity Photos workspace.

You can do the same thing in Affinity Designer but the brushes will be found in Pixel Persona

Ok lets start again, do you have any .abr file to import?

if not you can find a lot just by searching with google

Try importing this: night-sky.abr

Just double click on the .abr file ...

That's fine as long as you don't have Adobe Photoshop installed ;)

Logical, that's true, but it had to be specified!

Just dragging the .abr file to the workspace is the easiest, failsafe way to install an .abr brushes file.

As a side note, there are many photoshop brushes out there but quantity doesn't equal quality so you'll find yourself installing and deleting a lot of brushes.

On Macs, another failsafe way to install .abr brush files is to right click on the .abr file in Finder & from the popup "Open with" submenu choose the Affinity app (Designer or Photo) you want to import the brushes into.

I am not sure if there is an equivalent for Windows -- I think I read somewhere that the Windows Affinity apps do not declare to the OS that they can open .abr file types. If so, the 'open with' equivalent would not work.

Hello R C-R,

The installation of the brushes can also be done in this way with Windows.

There is also an .abr viewer for windows: https://sourceforge.net/projects/abrviewer/ and also abrmate: http://www.texturemate.com/abrMate

...and a very useful quicklook generator for Mac: http://brushviewer.sourceforge.net just place it in the /Library/QuickLook folder and then right click on and choose quicklook to view the abr files content.
