How to apply premade image overlay / Photoshop action

Recommended Posts

Hello Affinity community,

I am new to the Affinity suite (and mainly a musician designing my stuff as a sideline) so please forgive if I ask a simple or stupid question.

After researching many hours I found the perfect looking 2 fonts for my image / brand. Now I want to make the logos and pictures I create look old, vintage, scratchy.
After another long research I stumbled upon fontscafe.com and they have exactly what I need: Adjustable scratch patterns.

Here is the tutorial showing it's use:
including this short demonstration / explanation video:

Wow, killer, just what I have been searching for a long time. Sadly this is originally for Photoshop.
My question(s):
Can I use this in Affinity Photo (or Designer or Publisher)?
Or can I somehow convert this?
Or is there a similar product / option / possibility within the Affinity suite?

Thank you so much for your help,

Hi Andi.

You can use Photoshop actions with Affinity I'm afraid. However if with this pack you get the texture files as images then you should be able to import them into Affinity then change the blend modes to do what you are looking for.
