You cannot use Photoshop Brushes in Illustrator.Photoshop brushes are raster images that you "paint" into other raster images. Illustrator does not edit raster images.Illustrator Brushes are entirely different. Generally, they are vector artwork that gets stretched or scattered along a vector path.JET

Hi,

I have CS4 v14.0 Student. I found a set of 'fur' brushes which I would like to use on an illustration I am doing but I am unable to use them in Illustrator but I can use them in Photoshop. They are in .abr format. I spent a couple hours looking for a way to import them into Illustrator. But then finally thought I had better ask for help.  Thank yo all for your assistance to date.

Cheers,
