How to install Affinity brushes directly to the iPad app.

Whether you're working in Designer or Pixel Persona, installing brushes to Affinity for iPad is fast and easy to do. Read below and follow along to get started.


The first step is to make sure your iPad is up-to-date at  iPadOS 13.1 or higher. We will be using Safari to download our files.

Click the download button on the checkout page, via your email receipt, or in your customer account. You will be redirected to a File Download page. Click Download.


Click  Download in the pop-up window.


Click the downloads icon in the top right corner of the Safari window. Then click the finder icon next to the file name.


A new window will open, displaying all of your downloads. Be sure to wait until the file is completely downloaded, then  click the .zip file. 


Your .zip file is now unzipped and a folder will appear. We suggest deleting the .zip file in order to save space on your iPad. To do so, just hold your finger on the .zip file until a menu appears.  Click delete.


Open Affinity. If you are installing Drawing Persona (vector) brushes, toggle to the Drawing Persona.

If you are installing Pixel brushes, toggle to the Pixel Persona.


Open your  Brush Panel by clicking the Brush tool in the left side menu. Click on the menu bar in the top right corner of the Brush Panel. Click Import Brushes.


Locate the  .afbrushes file in the brushes folder inside the product folder. Click the file. Your brushes will automatically import into Affinity.
