Some Metal Styles

Recommended Posts

These look really good. I like the rustic look, but I'm not able to download the package. I'm being told that there is no available application to open them, but that's not true.

Hmm strange and what happens if you don't double click and try instead to load them in from the styles palette menu?

It's working now, but that was weird. Both times I downloaded, the packages went right in the trash.

Hmm I'm actually on OSX and also packed the styles file there, when I try it there just via double clicking on the uncompressed file inside the Mac finder, I get the same message as you!

 

I have to load it on OSX always from the AD styles palette menu via the import styles menu entry ...

... it looks for me as if *.afstyles files somehow aren't associated with AD here in the Mac Finder. - However importing from the styles palette instead should work!

I am really loving these. I can definitely use these styles for my work.

I sometimes need such metal looking styles for flyers and such things. Thus I have some collections of various different texture themes, which I then can reuse.

I know this is already my fourth comment in such a short timeframe, but can we use these styles for commercial use as long as it is applied to artwork? I was able to make a logo with one of those metal styles. And is credit needed?

No you don't need to credit me, I mean for what, these are no genuine artworks, instead just over the time collected things related to different themes (in this case metal gold/silver), which I partly used in the past for Xara textures/fills, for PagePlus/DrawPlus flyer work and for PS backgrounds/structures etc.

I'm new to the forum AND new to Affinity.  Snooping around forum and seeing what I can learn.

Thank you for the metals!  Hope to figure all this out soon.  :D

That works. Maybe even some fabric styles to make character clothing stand out more.

Wood-style is possible

 

Well there are so many different structures and facettes of wood, you best look over the NET after those you are personally mostly interested in. Making styles is really easy in AD, you should give it a try and make your own custom ones, which fulfill your individual needs here!

Hi guys. Where do I install the styles so that AP can access them? 

 

Never mind! I found it. Sorry for going off half cocked!

I forget if there was something I did differently, but it seemed to have fixed itself eventually. I'm sorry to say I really don't have any advice.
