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.

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.

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!
