FotoSketcher is a program that modifies photos by adding drawing, painting or miscellaneous effects.
The program has a nicely-structured interface. It comes with two available themes: charcoal and slate. The main window is split into two sides, one containing the original image and the other one displaying the effects that you bring to the picture. It supports only the popular formats, such as BMP, JPG, JPEG and PNG.

After you have selected the image that you want to edit, you can start adding the desired effects. It gives you the possibility to use pencil sketch effects, pen & ink sketch effects, painting effects, stylized effects or miscellaneous effects. The app comes with a preview option that displays all the changes made to the selected photo.

The program can also modify some aspects of the source image. It can set the luminosity, the contrast, the saturation or the blur/sharpen level. It allows you to resize the picture by adjusting the width and the height. This is a handy tool in case you want to create a personalized image or hide some photo details.

To sum up, I think that this is a nice and simple application that can be used by any user. It offers lots of editing features and the best thing is that it’s for free. The only thing that I dislike is the small size of the preview, which makes the editing process a bit difficult.
