Can some help with this question. I have several brushes loaded in Lightroom Classic. I want to know if I can use these brushes directly in Photoshop CC? I'm aware that I could use the brushes in LR and then move the image over to PS but it would be easier just to have the brush sets available in PS. Is this possible and if so how? I have seen comments on the web saying “pre-sets” are available in both LR and ACR as they use the same file but are pre-sets and brushes treated the same way? I have tried to load the LR brushes directly into PS but the files are not recognised in PS and the file in which I know the LR brushes are located displays as empty when I search. Any help appreciated.
Lr brushes are only locally applied 'adjustments' to the Develop sliders.
Ps brushes are defined shapes that 'paint' the brush effect.
To mimic a Lr brush in Ps you could set an adjustment layer, and brush (with a white brush) on a black mask to reveal the adjustment on your selected area of the image.
But, you can use a Camera Raw Filter on an image to apply the same as a Lr Brush in Masking! So then an answer for your question " if I can use these brushes directly in Photoshop CC?" might be a - Yes!
