Having shot amazing photos on your holiday will surely help you remember all the great moments you spent with your loved ones. If you want to make sure that your other friends are equally impressed by your pictures, you can try turning them into sketches - assuming drawing skills are not among your talents, you can rely on AKVIS Draw.
Turn images into drawings
You can run this application on any computer running one of the latest Windows editions, so no additional third-party software is required.
The installation goes smoothly, and you get to access the main window of the app within seconds, then select the image you want to enhance. A wide range of source formats is supported, such as CRW, CR2, RW2, RAW, NEF, ORF, NRW, ARW, PEF, RAF, MOS, DNG, JPEG, BMP, TIFF and PNG.
After you load the graphic file, it gets automatically converted into an artistic creation that looks as if it were handdrawn, and you can set it to in black and white or to retain the original colors.
Customize and watermark output drawings
If you are not pleased with the current settings, you can modify the level of details, so that more aspects of the source image are preserved, thus making the result seem less schematic.
You can also adjust the brightness of the pencil strokes and when you want to create the impression of an artistic mess, you can alter the dispersion value.
Moreover, you can also add a text message to your image, select the font type and size you see fit, then choose its position within the image.
Create sketches and share them online
All in all, AKVIS Draw can prove to be a real gem even if it is used by people with little to no creative skills, as the resulting images are bound to impress even the most exigent of users.
You can even show off your creations directly from within the main window, as you can share them on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Google+ or Tumblr.
