‘Instant-install’ brushes with one click by using the ‘new’ button in the plugin pane
If you purchased any brushes or have an active GrutBrushes membership you can add and install brushes directly into Photoshop via the GrutBrushes plugin panel using the “New” button.
You may think that it is broken, but it is likely just slow to load. I’m very sorry about that, but with a bit of patience, it is fast once it loads up. This 45 second video shows you how it’s done.
- Note: This has changed recently and the Install button is now a ‘download’ button instead, below the brush icon
- If you want to install brushes from your account just navigate to your downloads page in your account (except the Complete Set! Don’t install the set from the big blue button!)
Guests can also ‘instant-install’ freebies and the free Photoshop brush of the week directly from inside Photoshop using the GrutBrushes plugin panel.
If you have a brush set from before August 2015 and don’t have the icons, you can download them here
