Version 1.7
Review by Freddit

Absolutely marvelous - As someone who has been around 1980 BC (before computers), I know exactly how much work it takes to get this effect. Even when developers started making screen overlays, etc, it was a tremendous amount of work. Now… it just works perfectly in seconds. Enough controls to get desired effect, not dozens that you’ll never use. It is quite charming and creates lovely effects. Best of all, it works intuitively- I’ve bought other programs that I never used. This one, I already love.

Review by Wygk

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.

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.

Review by Frank-n-Stein

Absolutely Awesome - I have been looking for a while for software to easily convert photos to cartoon or drawings. I do have Photoshop, but I needed something quick to convert many photos. This is simply the best I have seen and seriously the price is, well too inexpensive for the results it gives. Others want way more, but this is great, set how you want the photos to look, import and you are done.
