Stipple effect


Recommended Posts

To all who want the stipple effect :

I have been searching high & Low for that elusive stipple effect.

Happy to tell you: found it. I hope you still have use for it after all this time.

It works as a standalone application, not a plugin.

No installation required (Mac & Win)

Moreover : It's free !

Be sure to read the How_to file, especially on how to save the result.

It's not as sophisticated as let's say Andromeda for Photoshop (which doesn't work in Affinity) , but it gets the job done.

You can choose the amount, size, color (Black on White or White on Black) etc.of the stippling effect.  

It works on various filetypes.

The result is an SVG file (vector) that you can open in AFDesigner.

When you zoom in at it in AFD, the stipples are all individual ellipses, black-stroked only, not filled.

Click "Select All", & Fill / Stroke them with any color you like.

Download (pick the right one !!)



How-To file (be sure to read it -save it as PDF to your computer) :



Best regards,
