Ensure that your file has been downloaded and unzipped to use.
1- Open Affinity Designer.
2- Open your image/file you would like the texture on.
3- Select File > Place to access your texture file.
4- The Texture file will appear over your image.
- Ensure your texture file is selected in the layer’s palette. Resize your texture to cover your image.
6- When using texture there are 3 common affects you can use on your texture that will give you a great result. These are the 3 I most use, but I recommend for you to have a play with the effects.
You will see a drop down box in the layer’s palette. It will say “normal” Change this to Overlay.
The texture file will change and create the effect on your image.
7- Soft light is another effect in the layers drop down box which can give you a very subtle texture effect.
8- For a more intense texture effect, I recommend hard light in the drop down box. this can give your image a really interesting look.
9-If you like the effect but want a subtler effect you can also change the opacity of your texture layer by going to the layer’s palette and moving the slide and change the % of opacity.
