For Beginners : How to Free Download & Install New Brushes in Photoshop

Photoshop brushes have evolved over the years and designers now use them as a fast and easy way to place clip art and shapes into their artwork. There are thousands of free Photoshop brush sets you can download and more every day!

1. Where to Download Free Photoshop brushes:

2. Unzip

Download the zip file containing your brushes and unpack the contents of the file. This will reveal a new folder containing a few other files, one of which is a .ABR brush file.

3. How to Install

  • You can either drag this .ABR file directly into your Photoshop window, or you can go under Edit > Presets > Preset Manager, select Brushes from the dropdown menu, and then add your brushes using the “Load” button.

That’s all there is to it. Once your brushes are loaded into Photoshop, you hit the letter ‘B’ to select your brush tool and then you can choose from your different brushes using the dropdown in the top toolbar.


If you are using Photoshop on a Mac you will need to place the “.abr” files in /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Presets/Brushes
