Do not worry, you may install your own if you’re bored by the default brushes available on Adobe Photoshop. You may install new brushes with forms, patterns or contours, etc. Adobe permits you. This is how to do it. How to do it.
Photoshop Download New Brushes
To begin, an appropriate collection of third-party brushes for Photoshop must be downloaded first. These are available in an ABR file format from places such as Brusheezy, for sale or for free online.
Note: Make sure you only download and buy brushes from reliable sources. In order to steal your computer, bad actors will add malware-infected files.
It is advisable to store the brush file in the Preset > Brushes folder in your Photoshop installation folder once the file has been downloaded.
This may normally be found on Windows in the location C:\Program Files\Adobe.
Certain brushes may already exist by default in the “Brushes” folder—just copy or transfer the new ABR brush file to this location.
Although third-party brushes can be left and loaded manually in an alternate folder, it is easier to leave these brushes to Photoshop in an appropriate controlled place.
Installing Brushes in Photoshop (From Photoshop 2021/22)
Depending on your version of Photoshop, how you install third-party brushes will differ. It may be possible to install new brushes with the Brushes menu panel if you’re running Photoshop 2020, however it may be necessary to show the panel first.
To do so, open a picture in Photoshop, either fresh or already, and then click Window > Brushes to view this panel.
This should show the Brushes menu panel, but you may need to move it with your mouse to lock it with other panels on the right.
Select the menu item “Settings” in the upper right-hand area of the panel to add additional brushes. Click the option “Enter Brushes” from here.
Select your third-party brush ABR file from the “Load” file selection box.
Once your ABR file is selected, you may install the brush in Photoshop by clicking the ‘Load’ button.
When the loaded brushes are successful, it will now display in the Brushes panel as a grouped folder for starting use.
Older Photoshop Version Installing Brushes (CC 2020 and Older)
You’ll need the preset manager rather than the Brushes panel menu to load brushes in previous versions of Photoshop (Photoshop CC 2020and older).
To achieve this, start your PC with Adobe Photoshop, select Edit > Presets > Preset Manager.
Press the’ Load’ button in the ‘Preset Manager’ box.
From here you may choose your brushes by clicking “Load” in the box to put them in Photoshop.
In order to choose “File Name,” you may need to select “Brushes (*.ABR)” from the drop-down menu.
Using an Imported Photoshop Brush
You may start utilizing them after your imported brushes are in place. To achieve this, you will need a visible panel of Brushes. Select Window > Brushes for visibility.
For the use, you can click a group folder for a list of all available browsers, which will show your newly import brushes as the “Brush Group” folder.
Select these brushes with your mouse to start using any of these brushes. Selected brushes will appear with a blue border around them in the Brushes panel.
You may now start sketching your picture with your preferred brush to design and build new pictures.
You may also modify your brush settings with the options bar on the top of the Photoshop window, like with other Photoshop brushes.
