Kyle T. Webster’s Photoshop Brushes Now Available in PS Sketch

Painting on the iPad and iPhone just took a leap forward with the introduction of Photoshop brush support in Photoshop Sketch*. Take all of your favorite Photoshop brushes that you’ve created over the years, add them to a Creative Cloud library and they will automatically appear for use in Photoshop Sketch. When combined with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, your brushes will take on a new life in PS Sketch. We’ve built just the right settings directly into PS Sketch so you can adjust everything you need while painting on your iPad or iPhone.

To help get you started, Adobe partnered with award-winning illustrator and brush-creator Kyle T. Webster to create a customized library with seven hand-tuned brushes from his Kyle Brushes collection. The collection includes oil, rake and splatter brushes. These brilliant brushes can be used in Photoshop on the desktop and PS Sketch on your iPad and iPhone. See examples of Kyle’s incredible work created using his brushes at his website.

    “Take all of your favorite Photoshop brushes that you’ve created over the years, add them to a Creative Cloud library”

    HOW?

    Dragging them from Tools Presets to Library does NOTHING, and clicking the + on the Library palette doesn’t show any options to add brushes. Hardly intuitive.

    All this post tells you it how to use the free Kyle brushes. Throw us a bone!

      It looks like you can only drag Brush Presets into a Library – not Tool Presets.
