How to install the textures that come with the purchase of Affinity designer?

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

If you're referring to the Fine Liner Affinity Brushes by The Artifex Forge, and the textures that come with them, the Instructions PDF file tells you how to use them. If you did not download the Instructions, then you can go to https://affinity.store/account/downloads to find them again.

Thanks! However upon doing said action this appeared in the AD software.

That's because Fineliner Broken Lines.afdesign is not an *.afbrushes file. It is an .afdesign file.

If I remember correctly, the instructions say to Open the file. You're trying to import it as a brush file, which (as R C-R mentioned), it's not.

FIle > Open, or File > Place, or double-click it, etc.

Correctly installed.

I accomplished this with all the help. I may have overlooked the original wording. These brushes are all native now. Question about that import solution offered by Frozen Death Knight (Funny name). As I am Ex-Photoshop user,  regarding brush files to AD. Can AD only accept only files for Affinity Designer or can brush files be used marketed for other software?

 

Thanks!

AD can import .abr type Adobe Photoshop brush files. Because they are pixel brushes, they will appear in AD's Pixel Persona. (They also can be imported into Affinity Photo.)

Not all of them will work the same way as in Photoshop -- I have imported some from an old version of Photoshop Elements that apply a base texture that as imported is not correctly centered on the brush, so they leave gaps if I try to use them in Affinity. But at least in my experience, most do work either the same as in Photoshop or close enough to be useful.
