FotoSketcher is a free program which takes your digital photos and turns them into works of art. This program is really easy to use and can produce some really good-looking results. There are different styles available including the following: pencil sketch, pen and ink drawing, and various painting renderings. The program also comes with built-in tools to help you manipulate your photos.

One of the only issues I have with this program is the fact that you cannot open PNG graphics to manipulate them. This is not a major problem, but I’ve come to expect most programs supporting this format.

FotoSketcher works on all versions of Windows and can be downloaded below. See some examples of the effects, FotoSketcher can produce, below.

    A useful program, but nonetheless Paint.Net can do the very same using its effects and supports .png files, so I think I’ll stick with that.

    I was reading the statistics for Paint.net and it requires 200 mb of hard drive space. I am now using FotoSketcher, which is only 3.57 mb in size and PhotoFiltre, which is only 16.7 mb in size (after installing all the plugins). I’ve found that PhotoFilter works just as well as Paint Shop Pro (if not better). http://photofiltre.free.fr/frames_en.htm Im also very impressed with FotoSketcher.

    I’m sure that Paint.net works really well, but with FotoSketcher and PhotoFiltre, I have everything I need to work with images and graphics. I’ve also only used 19.64 mb of space on my hard drive. This is pretty nice for people that don’t have a lot of space to spare on their hard drive.
