What is a BRUSH file?

A BRUSH file is a brush used by Savage Procreate, an illustration app for iOS. It is used to import a brush effect, such as a sketching, inking, or airbrushing effect, into Procreate's Brush Library. BRUSH files are created by exporting a brush from Procreate.

More Information

Savage Procreate is a digital painting application designed for use on the iPad Pro. Most commonly, illustrators use the Apple Pencil to paint and draw in Procreate.

Procreate contains a Brush Library that allows illustrators to select from and illustrate using a variety of brush effects. For example, an illustrator can select a sketching brush while sketching, a calligraphy brush while lettering, or a texture brush to apply a texture. Each brush effect is saved as a separate BRUSH file.

How to export Procreate brushes as BRUSH files

To export a Procreate brush as a BRUSH file, press and hold that brush, and then drag it out of the app. You can tap other brushes at the same time, before dragging them out of the app, to export multiple brushes at the same time. You can then email or otherwise share the BRUSH file(s) with another Procreate user, to allow them to import that brush.

How to open a BRUSH file

To import a BRUSH file into Savage Procreate (iOS):

  1. Locate the file in your Files app or wherever else it is stored.
  2. Drag and drop the file to Procreate.

Your BRUSH file will then appear in your Procreate Brush Library.

A BRUSH file may also be an image created using Xerox Doodle, a paint program included with the Xerox Star 8010 PC (also known as the Xerox Dandelion). It contains a bi-level, black and white image.

More Information

Bi-level images (also referred to as binary images) consist of pixels that can be one of two colors. Each of the image's pixels is stored as a single bit of binary code, with a 1 representing one color and a 0 representing the other. In most cases, bi-level images are black and white.

How to open a BRUSH file

Because the BRUSH file format is obsolete, no known image viewers can open BRUSH files. However, you can convert your BRUSH file to a .PBM (Portable Bitmap Image) file using Netpbm (cross-platform). Then, you can open the file as you would any PBM file.
