Hello,

If I import brushes in Affinity photo, I get a message that they are imported, but I can find them nowhere. So I do it again. I get the message that my brushes are imported in Fur and hair 4. But I all 4 I can't find. Anybody an idea? I remember having this problem before in Affinity photo. But not in Affinity Designer.

Perhaps you're importing Vector brushes, rather than Raster brushes? They'll import, but they're only usable in Designer, not in Photo.

For more about this, see for example the Vector brushes in Affinity Photo topic.

If you have tried importing vector brush sets into Affinity Photo several times, you may want to reclaim the file space wasted by storing them in Photo's vector_brushes.propcol file, like I described in my reply in that topic if you are a Mac user, or using the file path in the reply by @rnbguy if you are a Windows user.

Ah thank you, that might be the problem. I am always surprised I get the message that they are imported. I'll go to designer for painting hair :).
