How do you add brushes to Illustrator?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:20 pm

Adding brushes to Illustrator is easy. There are a number of ways to do it, but the simplest is to open the Brushes panel (Window > Brushes), find the brush you want, and click on the icon to add it to your Illustrator document.

Once the brush is added, you can use it to paint on your artwork just as you would with any other Illustrator tool. To remove a brush from your document, simply click on the icon that appears to the right of the brush name in the Brushes panel.

PRO TIP: If you are unsure of how to add brushes to Illustrator, it is best to consult with a professional or someone who is familiar with the software. Incorrectly adding brushes to Illustrator can result in software errors or crashes.

If you want to save a brush for later use, you can do so by clicking on the small pencil icon next to the brush’s name in the Brushes panel. This will open the Brush Settings panel, where you can enter a name for the brush, as well as a description.

When you’re done, click on the OK button to save the brush.

Finally, if you want to quickly access a specific brush in the future, you can type its name into the Search field located in the Brushes panel.
