If you downloaded the brush Megapack from Kyle T. Webster before April 17 2018, you must download and install an update to it. Your Megapack is already up-to-date if you installed it on or after April 17 2018.

Megapack update Spring 2018
Brushes updated/added to the Megapack on April 17, 2018

Install the latest Megapack

  1. In Photoshop, choose Window > Brushes to show the Brushes panel.

  2. In the Brushes panel, from the flyout menu (), choose Get More Brushes. Alternatively, right-click a brush listed in the Brushes panel and select Get More Brushes from the context menu.

  3. From Kyle’s brush pack download page that opens in your Internet browser, download Megapack.

  4. With Photoshop running, double-click the downloaded megapack.abr file.

Photoshop installs the latest Megapack.

Install only the repaired brushes

Several brushes in the Megapack had texture tiling problems when the set was first made available to Creative Cloud members in October 2017. Those brushes have now been repaired. When you download the full Megapack again and replace your entire existing set, you automatically install the latest brushes.

If you prefer to keep your existing Megapack installed in Photoshop and only replace the faulty brushes, follow these steps:

  1. In Photoshop, expand the flyout menu () for the Brushes panel, and select Get More Brushes to download the Megapack Update Spring 2018.

  2. Install the .abr file by double-clicking it from its download location. A new brush folder appears at the bottom of your brush list in the Photoshop Brushes panel. Notice that this folder has a subfolder named Repaired Brushes.

  3. Delete the following brushes from the existing Megapack folder in the Brushes panel:

    • Kyle’s Drawing Box - Shady Graphite
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache A Go Go
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache A Go Go Tilt
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache Bonus Gritty Dry
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache Less Dry
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache Less Opaque
    • Kyle’s Paintbox - Gouache Soft Mostly Opaque
  4. From the Repaired Brushes subfolder (Step 2), drag the brushes to their corresponding locations in the existing Megapack folder. For example, drag the Shady Graphite brush from the Repaired Brushes subfolder into the Drawing Box subfolder within Megapack.

Install only the updated brushes

To install only the latest brush update, thereby adding the newest brushes to your existing Megapack, follow these instructions:

  1. In Photoshop, expand the flyout menu () for the Brushes panel, and select Get More Brushes to download the Megapack Update Spring 2018.

  2. Install the .abr file by double-clicking it from its download location. A new brush folder appears at the bottom of your brush list in the Photoshop Brushes panel. Notice that this folder has a subfolder named New Brushes.

  3. From the New Brushes subfolder (Step 2), drag the brushes to their corresponding locations in the existing Megapack folder. For example, drag the Watercolor Fill brush from the New Brushes subfolder into the Paintbox subfolder within Megapack.
