Publisher's Description:

AKVIS Sketch - AKVIS Sketch is photo to sketch conversion software. It turns photos into pencil sketches and watercolor paintings. AKVIS Sketch lets you create realistic color and B&W drawings, it imitates the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting.

The program is available in two versions: as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor. AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface with a few sliders. At first you can process the image with the default settings and then touch up the photo adding color, or trying different techniques - from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. You can make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes, or add/remove the original colors.

You will be delighted by the neat result of the photo to sketch conversion. Using the program can be a lot of fun. Make a pencil portrait as a gift for your relatives and friends, a watercolor drawing obtained from your last nature shooting can decorate your room, or you can convert any photo to an original drawing to print on a T-Shirt. The program helps you when you need to quickly bring images to one style for a website or an advertisement booklet.

AKVIS Sketch comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist.

On the whole it's a wonderful tool for those who have always wanted to draw but didn't know how.

Looking for a specific tool

I my need was focused on transforming a photo (portrait) into a drawing.
The features made available by your tool are interesting but out of the scope.
Best regards

Great Program

This program creates very realistic sketches from photos and also allows you to save different settings which is great.

I shall use the program to create "natural" looking images from my photos.

A good illusion

This plugin can help one out who wish to create art from photos.
As usual the size of the image is critical for best result.
