How to Install RetroSupply Illustrator Brushes

I've had a good amount of customers ask me how to install Illustrator brushes. So I thought I'd create a quick video that walks you through how to do it.

Note: This video is specific to how to add Illustrator brushes from RetroSupply. Due to crazy bad backwards compatibility for Illustrator, I find it much easier to provide customers with a beautifully laid out brush sheet. From their they can add them to their personal brush library in less than a minute.

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or find this video helpful!

Hi Dustin, just purchased the spaceranger and vector brush toolbox products. I’m a UIUX Developer and have certain workflows and strategies for things like backup and dev workflow. I’ve used Adobe products forever, but not (until recently) as a primary focus. I’m trying to come up with a strategy for backup, where to place tools, brushes, actions, symbols, etc. So far I’m doing this: 1) Backup any custom stuff (like purchased tools from Retro Supply for example) to my Dropbox 2) Place the files in default Adobe presets location so they’re available on any new document.

I realize #2 from above could potentially bloat things if I went too crazy, but, does this seem like a sensible approach or do you have another recommendation? I’m really surprised that I wasn’t able to find a great workflow/approach after some googling on this. Thanks in advanced.
