Even though it has a .ai extension, the file you downloaded (if you downloaded one of the Brush Libraries) is an “Illustrator Brush Library,” not an actual Illustrator file. You will not be able to open the file in Illustrator. These brushes are available in a variety of extensions so that they can be used in all types of different software and applications.

1. Unzip the File.

2. Copy or move the file to your Illustrator > Presets > Brushes folder.

3. Restart Illustrator If it was open during installation.

After you restart Illustrator, you will be able to load the brushes by clicking on the little arrow in the upper right corner of the brushes palette. Or go to Window > Brush Libraries > and choose the file from the list.


High-resolution illustrator brushes are not available easily online. There are several ways you can modify these brushes and enhance their functionality.
