So much easier than the program I’ve used for years to accomlish this effect. Didn’t cost several hundred dollars either. Great program and well worth the price.

Iʻm in love with this program!!! (1.7)

Finally a program that will do exactly what I want and in the least amount of steps. I canʻt thank you enough for making my graphic art easier. All a person needs to do is let their imagination go!

This app is extremely handy for quickly and easily converting any photo into simple lines. I’ve used it to make coloring sheets for kids and for watercolor paintings. It’s simple to use, has some nice simple editing tools plus the price is great.

This is amazing (1.7)

If it simply converted the photo image to a sketch, it would be well worth the price, but it included a bunch of tuneable parameters and options to vary the line weight, the “wetness,” the background effect, etc. You can even colorize the sketches.

Thank You for the update!!!! (1.7)

PhotoSketcher Is a handy little program that I’ve been using for a couple of years with success. It’s also a steal at $4.99 for what It does. There are so many more exspenive apps at this store that never get updated because they can’t charge for upgrades here but ThinkTime Creations just did so for free ! Thank you for great customer service!

This will not download and I assume thats because of the updated OS X and looks like no more support for it by the company.

Drag & Drop??? (1.6)

How come I cannot just drag a picture from Photos and drop on the main screen as instructed?

I downloaded this just today. I already love it! I’m a visual artist. Sometimes I just need a visual ‘x-ray’ of a photograph before I can draw my composition. This is perfect!
