Free Grunge Styles and Resources

February 19th, 2010

Today we are glad to release five grunge styles for Adobe Photoshop. These styles were designed by the german Photoshop artist Dirk Metzmacher and released especially for Noupe and its readers, including resources for textures, fonts and brushes.

You can load styles with the style palette. In case this window isn’t open yet, go to Window > Styles in the menu. Click on the little black arrow at the top right. The pop-up list lets you perform several actions regarding to styles. Pick “Load Styles…” to add another style to the current selection, or “Replace Styles…” to replace the current selection with another style.


You can active any of the styles by clicking its thumbnail icon. Any content of your layer (literally every single pixel) will be equipped with the style. That could be a drop shadow, a texture or a combination with more effects.
