Procreate Brush Import Guide

Procreate 4 is here, and its amazing! You can now install a LOT of brushes at once using the new Files app in iOS 11. We recommend using an iCloud account (its free), or syncing them to Files with iTunes. We've made this handy info-graphic for importing brushes into Procreate 4, so without further a-do... enjoy!

First things first... USE SAFARI on iPad!

If you are a Tip Top Brushes customer (thank you!) you may download a zip file, or individual files one-at-a-time with all the brushes neatly organized.

  • If using iPad only, you can download the files one-by-one (pretty slow, but fine for smaller brush sets) and select "open in Procreate". Or use a third-party unzip app to extract the zip contents to the Files app. 
  • If using a computer, extract the files and upload them to iCloud.

Step 1. Long press on the Files app in the dock, and drag it to the side of Procreate 4. 

Step 2. Navigate to your brush files, select all the ones you wish to import, long press on the files and they will turn into a "stack" (pictured below). Drag them over into Procreate, and watch them magically appear!

If you're importing multiple collections, its nice to create the categories in the brushes menu first, to avoid lots of tedious sorting afterwards.
