Backing up existing and previously installed brushes to update Krita

How do I backup brushes that I have previously installed so I can update from Krita 4.2 to Krita 4.3?

Settings -> Manage Resources -> Open Resource Folder
That will bring you to the “krita” folder on your computer. Backing up this folder will back up everything, shortcuts, brushes, plugins and so on! The “paintoppresets” is the folder with your custom brushes. “bundles” is your bundles, like those you download. “brushes” is the brush tip images.
Backing up the whole “krita” folder is the safest and easiest.

Upgrading from 4.2 to 4.3 should be fine though, I updated mine without problems, but it is a nice feeling having things backed up! :blush:

Welcome to the forum btw! :grin:

Thank you VERY much for your reply and warm welcome. I will get right on this. I’ve only been using Krita for 6 months and I am really liking it. It’s easy for a visually impaired person to use too. I am greateful that I found this forum!
