One click installation of Photoshop brushes into Photoshop
Buying the Artbrushes Photoshop brushes Set gives you a free two month membership, which includes all new brushes published in the Shop for 60 days, if you are a Photoshop CC user and are using the GrutBrushes plugin you can install the newest brushes without even leaving Photoshop. This 30 second tutorial shows how it’s done.
The Photoshop brushes are always listed in order of publication, with the newest one shown first.
If you can’t remember if you installed the newest Photoshop brush, Click install and the plugin will let you know if you have it already.

The red play button will pop up a video preview of the brush in action.
With version 1.2.1 of the GrutBrushes Photoshop plugin you can now save custom sets of brushes so that they don’t all have to be in one big set. In this short video I show you how to create a new set and how to modify which Photoshop brushes it contains.
