This is amazing - 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.

Review by Brother J.

Thank You for the update!!!! - 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!

Wonderful app for kids,aspiring artists, etc - 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.
