What is an ABR file?
An .ABR file is an Adobe PhotoShop Brush file.
Files that contain the .abr file extension are most commonly used by the Adobe Photoshop image editing application. Consumers and businesses use Photoshop to edit and manipulate images that have been created online or taken with a digital camera. The Photoshop software has various functions, including the ability to change textures, shapes, and dynamics within the image that is being edited.
The Photoshop software's "brush" settings save the different aspects of the software's "brush effects". The ABR files that are located within the Photoshop software program are the files that store the different Photoshop "brush" settings. Each brush style has its own corresponding ABR file and can be accessed using the Photoshop application drop-down menu.
