Sketch Master is a program with a pretty self-explanatory name - it allows you to generate sketch art from your pictures. The tool can be easily handled, even by less experienced users.
The interface of the tool is plain and uncomplicated; you can import an image from your computer by using the file browser ('drag and drop' is not supported) or work with sample pictures. Unfortunately, Sketch Master supports few file types - JPG, JPEG and BMP.
So, you can select the sketch effect between pen, pencil and pastel, as well as adjust settings in regard to the precision, line and scale. These changes can be previewed in a small window but they can also be applied to the real image.
In addition, you can zoom in and out, use a frame, insert a comic face, add items to an image list, as well as set an image as wallpaper. Furthermore, you can create an album (with the EXE format) and preview it, capture pictures from the webcam, manage a photo library and edit photographs by using Windows' 'Paint'.
By accessing 'Photo to Sketch' under the 'Tools' menu, you can apply textures (tile or stretch) and use additional sketch effects (brush and eraser), as well as toggle between the automatic and freehand mode.
Sketch Master requires a low amount of CPU and system memory and has a good response time. No errors have occurred during our tests and Sketch Master did not freeze or crash. On the downside, there is no help file available and the interface needs some major improvements. Plus, the app comes with limited features. No recent updates have been made.
