Classic engraving effect (copperplate engraving) for Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

I had to edit some images for a client, who wanted to embed them into some kind of bank notes. The motives on them used to be classic copperplate engravings. So I created some macros for AP, some of which I want to share with the community. 


  • The image needs to be square format (it will get resized to 3000 x 3000 px)
  • The image needs to be flat (only 1 layer)
  • The styles provided in this post need to be added prior to starting the macro

I got an error message when trying to upload the files (probably due to their size, hence some google cloud links:
