.ABR Files

CreativeMarket (affiliate link) sends out free stuff fairly regularly. Sometimes, like today, there was something I wanted – a big set of arrows – bendy, strait, you-name-it.

The bundle arrived as a set of PNGs and an ABR file.

What is a .ABR file, I wondered?

ABR (. abr) file extension is a file format created for Adobe Photoshop. It contains a collection of custom brushes that can be used by the Brush tool in Adobe Photoshop and it includes shape, texture, dynamics, and other data for each brush style.

So now I know.

On a Mac the files are stored in

Applications / Adobe Photoshop / Presets / Brushes
