Blueprint Effect using affinity photo

Recommended Posts

It's the same method.

  1. Get the schematic
  2. Add a rectangle and change the colour to a blueprint blue (Move it below the schematic)
    • You could just as easily add a Fill layer (main menu at the top of the affinity app) Layer > New Fill layer instead of a rectangle
  3. Change the schematic layer blend mode to screen
  4. Go to (main menu at the top of the affinity app) Layer > Invert


If you wanted to add a bit of texture just add a texture image.

You can use this one I made in Filter Forge using a simple filter I made to make this kind of texture: texture overlay.png.zip

There are some great links in the description of that video, thanks Spoon Graphics.
