New QGIS symbol packages

So far, QGIS does not come with many default symbols. Quite often one just needs two or three colors that go well together. That’s why I created a series of simple fill symbols based on ColorBrewer. They are available on Github QGIS-resources:

As always, these XMLs can be imported using Style Manager.


Another great addition to QGIS-resources was added this week by user aplannersguide. He shared his styles for osm2pgsql layers:

    Hi Underdark, thanks for the color-schemes.
    Ok, I have successfully imported these styles with Style manager. But now I dont know how to use them, when I have graduated styles .when I have 5 classes,, I need to select each defined color one after ssssanother from the scheme? (Thats what I do at the moment) Or is there a more convient way to select a complete scheme (5 colors) at once???
