  1. Let me go through my steps and do some screenshots. 


    I download the file file from this forum and open in iZip. In iZip I extract all and click on the resulting afstyles file. iZip says it doesn’t recognize this file format and asks me where to open it. I click on Save to Files. When the location prompt comes up, I click iCloud Drive and then click Add in the upper right hand corner.


    In Affinity Photo, open a document then open the Styles palette and click on Styles at the bottom. Click on the box with 3 lines (next to the pushpin icon) and click Import Styles. The Browse option should have the iCloud Drive open and you will see your downloaded file. Click that. Then watch your new Styles pop up in AP.


    If you want a link to the free iZip app, yell.

    I agree!!! I've spent way too much time trying to do this. Actually, I'm still in the middle of it so I'm really glad you asked this! I've never imported any styles before.




    I found if I store the styles file in iCloud, it imports perfectly. Try that and let me know if it works for you too.


    Good luck!

  3. Can anyone give me a step by step (or point me to a tutorial on Vimeo or YouTube) to help me install the style files that are downloaded from the Resources forum here? I did it successfully (and easily) with the previous version but I am just not doing well with the new version.


    I have tried saving the files to Dropbox and the Files app but nothing is importing using “import styles” in the Styles palette.


    Color me frustrated.

    Hi Yesiam


    You do need IOS 11.2 in order to run this update.  Could you post a screenshot from 'Settings>General>Software Update' of your iPad and we can look into this further.



    Very weird. Neither my iOS or the app would let me update yesterday but today both did. Guess the software Gods decided to stop playing with me.


    Problem solved.


  5. I get no error messages. When I download the afstyles file, I do not have the “open with” option like I do for brush files.


    i tried saving it to the Files app and installing from there, the file name stays greyed out.


    Dropping and dragging the afstyles file doesn’t work.


    When I click on the 3 line icon in the styles palette, I do not see an option to import from there.


    Those are the 4 ways I have tried to install them. I wish I could remember how I installed them originally because I know I did it and I know they worked. Color me confused!

  6. I deleted AP tonight, hoping to force the newer version when re-downloading. It didn’t work so I reinstalled the 1.6.5 version on my iPad Pro 12.9.


    Previously I had installed some of the cool shared style files from this forum. (Thank you to the awesome contributors of their talents.)


    For some reason though, I cannot get the afstyles to load or import like they did before. Can anyone shed light on what I may be doing wrong?


    TIA, Yesi

    Hi Yesiam1996 and Welcome to the Forums,


    You'll need a source image of some glitter open (or as it's own layer in a photo you are already working on) . Then add some text and using the Layers panel, drag the Text layer over the Glitter layer and release.  The text should now be filled with the image of the glitter.


    I've attached a sample .afphoto file to this post, showing the layer setup.


    Hope that helps



    glitter text.afphoto

    Thank you for your response. In desperation, I scoured YouTube and watched a roughly filmed video (over and over) until I “got it”.
