Selectively adding brushes

Can someone please advise:

When I try to add from Kyle's brush, it adds the complete set - is there a way to see what is in the pack and selectively load the ones that I need to add to my Fresco instead of dumping all the brushes?

Not sure if you can select the ones you want to install.
It has been a while since I've added any brushes by if you can download the pack and look inside via a file explorer then you should be able to choose what to install.

Alternatively you could go into your Creative Cloud account and remove all the extra afterwards.

Thank you both - I liked this idea on this page: https://community.adobe.com/t5/fresco-discussions/loading-only-few-selective-brushes/td-p/13952390 and it worked like a charm. Thanks to @thejanebradbury

This will be a good idea too - can you suggest how I open the file. The moment I click on it - it opens in Photoshop. Is there a special File Explorer I can use. I tried WinZip as well but no luck. I do remember opening the .abr container sometime ago but now I dont seem to be successful. Is there a way I can open for example Kyle's Letterer.abr file to view all the brushes and remove the ones that I don't need?

My above screenshot has come from the Creative Cloud. That's the best way I can see to remove your unwanted brushes.

Any help on the file explorer (on iOS) that can display the content of the .abr file so I can select only a few individual brushes? thanks

Morning @Sanjeev30867890s310 The screenshot @Sjaani shared is from the Creative cloud Desktop app, so should work on iOS as well as Windows. If you have a brush library there, you can view the brushes in there. Here's an example with the Fall 2021 brush update:

Currently it's not really possible (I wish I could!), but one way I had to get around that, is to download them on  my computer, open them in Photoshop, create a new folder in my brushes panel, rename it something useful, either copy the brushes I want from the brush pack I just downloaded, or drag and drop them into my new folder, and then drag that folder into my libraries. Now that library is synced with Fresco and contains only my own selection. I do the same with the brushes I created myself, so I have a handy place where I can find my own. Other less useful, but still used that are in the standard set are "starred" in favourites so they can easily be found as well. That way I barely search endlessly for brushes in the list.

If you need further explanations about brushes in Photoshop, let me know!

Thanks @Imaginerie and @Sjaani for the response. I tried adding it on my computer under 'my library' but it did not appear in Fresco. In general, this is a very complicated process. Adobe has to get even more user friendly otherwise Procreate will always be on top. Adobe can't blame this complication in favor of integrating with their other applications.

see this thing called "library brushes" when you scroll down in your brushes tab on the left. This is where all my custom folders are.
