AKVIS Sketch is photo to sketch conversion software. It turns photos into pencil sketches and watercolor paintings. AKVIS Sketch lets you create realistic color and B&W drawings, it imitates the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting.
The program is available in two versions: as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor. AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface with a few sliders. At first you can process the image with the default settings and then touch up the photo adding color, or trying different techniques - from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. You can make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes, or add/remove the original colors.
You will be delighted by the neat result of the photo to sketch conversion. Using the program can be a lot of fun. Make a pencil portrait as a gift for your relatives and friends, a watercolor drawing obtained from your last nature shooting can decorate your room, or you can convert any photo to an original drawing to print on a T-Shirt. The program helps you when you need to quickly bring images to one style for a website or an advertisement booklet.
AKVIS Sketch comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist. On the whole it's a wonderful tool for those who have always wanted to draw but didn't know how.
