Comments and Ratings for PhotoSketcher

Works, but frustratingly limited (1.7)

Bought this in the hope that it would prove better than using Photoshop Elements (£60) to turn photos into sketches to use in pyrography (wood-burning) and wood etching. On the good side - Photo Sketcher gives quick results which are sometimes good. On the bad side, if Photosketcher doesn’t give you a good result straight off (approx 70% of the time for me) , you have to go back to the original photo and massage it (in Photoshop Elements) before putting it back into Photosketcher. There is very little that can be done to massage the result in Photosketcher. And that is so time consuming you might as well do the whle thing in Photoshop Elements. So a handy little program for trials. But can be very frustrating.

This app saves me a huge amount of time creating the same effect in Photoshop. You can do it in PS but here it’s a the touch of a button and a few tweaks of the sliders. It does what it says on the tin!

Excellent app (1.6)

I love this app, it does the job very well. However could you update it for Retina Display please, it would be perfect then!

I was dubious about this app as it was so low priced, however……. I have to say its absolutely fantastic. Detail is retained and although the options of adjustment are limited, essentially the app does it all and only minor tweaks are needed for a really great effect. I've enjoyed using it , and it seems to have no problems with freeze or crashing…. its so easy to use.. no hesitation in recommending this

Does what it says and does it so so well.. (1.6)

This app is amazing. The ease of use is astounding and the results speak for themselves. It really couldn't be simpler than this. Well done ThinkTime Creations.

Useful app (1.2.1)

I am a designer, and this does a lot of things Photoshop does in terms of creating a 'sketch' from a photograph, it is nowhere near as good as the real thing but handy for creating roughs from found images. It is quick and easy to use and would suit non designers also. Good value.
