Photo to Sketch 4.0

Simple-to-handle piece of software that comes bundled with basic editing features for helping you convert a picture to a sketch and save the results to BMP, JPG or WMF file format
Photo to Sketch is an application you can use for entertainment purposes. It allows you to convert an image to a sketch.

Clean and simple looks

The program's interface is very blunt, and there are no special or hidden features to be found here. You can open a file to convert (JPG, JPEG, BMP), or use the default one provided by Photo to Sketch to test it.

Editing features

You can convert an image to a sketch made in pen, pencil or pastel. Options include adjusting precision and line. Unfortunately, you cannot view results while you are moving the sliders, but only after you hit the convert button.

Furthermore, you can add a texture to the output image. There are nine types that you can preview in a small window, and you can set them to either tile or stretch.

Exporting options

Once you are satisfied with the results, you can save the image to BMP, JPG or WMF file format, print it or send it to a friend (this feature did not work in our case).

Performance

Photo to Sketch has a good response time in case of pictures with an average size and medium resolution, but things change when you load a high quality image. The software application takes a long time to load the output file, and during this time the program is not responsive. Also, it does not have an Undo button.

The sketches look great, but they are clearly designed for recreational purposes only, such as making friends think you drew them in pencil. Complex functions are left to more advanced image editing applications.

Conclusion

Photo to Sketch is a tool that lets you quickly apply drawing effects to an image, and it uses a minimum amount of system memory. It lacks any advanced settings for image editing and it definitely needs to extend the palette of image formats it supports.
