Over 20 different styles are available from pencil sketches to watercolor or oil paintings, pen & ink drawings and cartoons. From photo to painting (landscapes, architecture, portraits, etc.) in seconds!

You can also improve your original photos with simple tools (enhance contrast, sharpen, simplify image, increase luminosity, color saturation etc…) and add simple or realistic frames and text.

I have created FotoSketcher as a fun project and I hope that you will enjoy using it: Best Regards,

FotoSketcher Review

FotoSketcher is a free graphic application designed to be easy to use for newbies and advanced enough for people that worked before with other graphic software. I tested this software on a computer running Windows 7 using both versions (installer and portable).

About the software…I can only think at something easy to use. I would like to say that all you have to do is to open an image, apply needed actions using one or more program features, save the image and there you go - enjoy wonderful results.

When I tested the program for the first time I modified one of my existing photos, used a "cartoon" style and sent it to my girlfriend. Immediately, she uploaded that image on Facebook and it received several "likes" from friends. One of her friends was so impressed saying that "Wow! What Photoshop can do!". I must say that I am not an Adobe Photoshop expert but this software will make you look like you're using an advanced program such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro or GIMP.

Obviously, it's not meant to be in the same league but there is no learning curve required. The truth is that everyone can achieve a similar result, you just need a couple of minutes or even seconds to convert your photos into art. You are allowed to do whatever you want with photos that you own. You can even sell created photos without having to buy a license or ask for author permission but don't forget that this is a free software and the author's work should be rewarded with a DONATION whenever is possible.
