Procreate® Pocket Handbook

Import and Share

Importing and exporting brushes allows you to share and receive unique brushes.

Import Brushes

Import Procreate (.brush) and Adobe® Photoshop® (.ABR) brushes into Procreate Pocket.

You can add Procreate brushes and Adobe® Photoshop® brushes to your Brush Library in two ways:

In-app Import

Import brushes created by other people straight into Procreate Pocket.

Tap New brush to create a new brush. Find and tap the Import button at the top right to import a brush from the Files app. The brush will import into your currently selected Brush Set.

File Association

Work directly with brush files.

If you have a .brush or .ABR file online or in an email, tap it, and you will see a prompt to import the brush into Procreate Pocket. Your new brush will import into a specially created folder called Imported. Scroll to the bottom of your Brush Library to find your Imported folder.

Custom Sets

Organize brushes into your own custom Brush Sets.

Create a new Brush Set

Tap New set to create a new Brush Set. You can create unlimited sets, and drag your new group to any position in the Brush Set list.

Custom Set Options

Tap your custom Brush Set to reveal a menu with options to Rename, Delete, Share, and Duplicate.


By default, the name of a new Brush Set is Untitled Set. To customise this title, tap the set's name, then tap Rename.


Delete a custom Brush Set. Be aware, deleting a set can’t be undone.


Export your custom Brush Set as a single file containing all the brushes in that set.


Duplicate an entire Brush Set. You can also duplicate Procreate Pocket’s default Brush Sets.
