You're welcome!

 

I should probably explain that the name isn't an arrogant, self-aggrandizing thing. My company's name is DreamScape Visionery, hence Dream Styles.

I would like to import some of my PS styles: I have quite a lot. Was it difficult to do? I have no problem with swatches as I have a program that allows me to export swatches in different file formats, one of which is .clr which is what Affinity uses. But of course, I don't have that option for my PS styles. If it was not difficult, could you kindly explain how you did it? (In my neck of the woods, difficult means more than a five or six steps). Thanks in advance.

You're welcome. It wasn't difficult at all.

1. Create a photoshop document, and add shapes to it. (Must be an actual shape to work properly in my experience.)

2. Assign styles to the various shapes. (You can see from my provided screenshot I used circles)

3. Save .psd file and open it in AD

4. Click on each shape, one at a time, then right-click and select "Create Style"

5. Right-click on the style in the panel and choose Rename. You're done.

I forgot to mention, i'm working on v2 of my styles that allow editing the gradients directly in the image instead of manipulating them from the effects panel. That is much more difficult. The Gradient fill tool is tougher to get crisp transitions and set midpoints with. But it's doable.

Sure, Ronnie. I have no problem with that. They're meant to be free for everyone, so promote away. :)

I just updated the top post with version 2.0 You can adjust the gradients with the gradient tool, and the stroke without going to the Effects panel. I also had a request for the style I created of the blue atmosphere for my planet render with 3 more color options as well. I have provided those too. Enjoy!
