    "good basic conversion program"

    September 8, 2011  |   By DrDan0

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.10

    Pros

    very fast and gives a fair finished product

    Cons

    a little too basic but the image can be easily touched up with any basic photo editor

    Summary



    Updated on Sep 8, 2011

    after reloading it i did find the bloatware a little mis leading.
    in the future if you are adding an ask toolbar or any other third party software/browser to help pay for your project, please let the downloader know what they are recieving so they can make an informed choice as to what they are loading on their computer. i was able to simply uncheck the load options but there are those out there who may not know to do that and it just makes a good software look either poor or at the least suspect as to the intention or quality of its code.

    "Can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."

    July 21, 2011  |   By sjb3

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.10

    Pros

    UI is first-rate; instructions are clear and concise. Turns a snapshot of the family around the picnic table into a beautiful miniature painting.

    Cons

    A bit slow (unless you have a lot of RAM), though that's not really the program's fault. Neither is the need for the user to have a bit of imagination.

    Summary

    Gives the Photoshop Artistic filters a run for their money, yet does not present itself as trying to replace same. Considering what has to have been the enormous amount of work put into developing this program, I am both surprised and gratified that it is offered free of charge.

    "An amazing and easy to use tool."

    June 11, 2011  |   By VASamspon

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.10

    Pros

    This free program offers the same, and at times better features than I have in Adobe Photoshop Elements, for sketching and adding life and at times comical characters to your photographs. I love it!

    Cons

    Been using it for a few weeks and thus far only good things to say. Still don't believe it is a free program!

    Summary

    Try this out before you invest your money in other programs to do what FotoSketcher does, for free. It is easy to use and as I said before, great for adding a different life and quality to your photos. Great for "hiding" peoples faces (you know, privacy issues) if you want to upload to public sites and don't have 3rd party permissions.

    "Best fun freeware I have ever used! Great results too."

    February 23, 2011  |   By MartynBaker

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.0

    Pros

    Make your photos (or anyone else's) into pretty convincing watercolour, pencil sketches or even oil paintings in as many styles as you can name artists. I have given my girlfriend a nude watercolour of herself....... she was thrilled, honest.

    Cons

    The colour pencil sketches are the least convincing part of this program, but........ Wow! The B/W ones look like you just scribbled them yourself.

    "Like a mini photoshop"

    February 14, 2011  |   By anyport

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.0

    Pros

    Simple interface, easy to learn and get good results. It does take a little time to explore the possibilities, but it's immediately usable.

    Cons

    Documentation is scant.

    Summary

    This is a niche product that does one thing very well. If you want to get the most from it, it takes a bit of experimenting. Quick and easy compared to the big boys in image editing.

    "Converts pictures into artwork"

    February 11, 2011  |   By jfix0834

    Version: FotoSketcher 2.0

    Pros

    Does what it is advertised to do with a very simple interface.

    Cons

    Only draws with pen strokes at a 45 degree angle from the right starting the strokes from high right to lower left. It should have strokes from 45 degrees left, vertical and horizontal with selectable stroke length.
