This application is designed to turn images into sketches. Although it can be taken as a photo editor at its basis, this program is more than an ordinary picture customizer. Along with standard editing features such as resizing, rotating, cropping, or adding watermarks, the app comes with specialized functions that convert pictures into artistic creations similar to paintings, cartoons, and hand drawings.

The program provides a modern interface and a classy appearance. The working area is divided into two halves: the left board displays the source picture, while the right pane acts as a preview of the altered image. This way, you can notice the modifications you made to the original at any moment and how the resulting picture will look like before saving it.

With this app you will be able to transform your photos into exquisite works of art. To achieve this goal, FotoSketcher provides you with a pallet of outstanding visual effects that turn the images into genuine hand drawings. You can choose among different styles, which convert common pictures into artistic paintings executed in pencil, ink, or watercolor. In addition, the program comes with a series of stylized and miscellaneous effects that can add, among other things, a vintage or a cartoon-like stylization to your images.

Yet, the output image displayed on the right pane is not the only one to support customization. You can modify the original photo first, and use the result as a source for further artistic adjustments. Namely, you have the ability to crop a selection, as well as to apply modifications related to luminosity, saturation, contrast, and blurring.

All in all, this application is a comprehensive image editor that converts your digital photos into sketches. It provides advanced editing features which you can preview before applying them to the original picture.
