Convert a Photo to a Pencil Sketch
AKVIS Sketch converts photos into pencil sketches and watercolor paintings.
Now you do not need to handle a pencil to feel like an artist.
All you need to create your original work of art is good taste and AKVIS Sketch.
Our efficient method creates realistic color and B&W drawings that imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting.
In contrast to standard filters that offer an approximate sketch, AKVIS Sketch comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist.
Getting a similar result with the standard tools would require expertise in image editing and extensive manipulation with layers, masks, brushes and applying filters. AKVIS Sketch lets you create an awesome pencil drawing from any photograph with a mouse click!
The software offers two photo-to-sketch conversion styles: Classic and Artistic, which help to create a wide variety of pencil drawings.
The software 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.
The program can be helpful to designers who need to quickly bring images to one style for a web-site or an advertisement booklet. Authors create illustrations for their books using AKVIS Sketch.
Home users will be delighted by the neat result of the photo-to-sketch conversion. Using AKVIS Sketch 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.
On the whole it's a wonderful tool for those who have always wanted to draw but didn't know how.
AKVIS Sketch can add background effects to your picture. Create a blend of a drawing and a photo; imitate motion or add a "time machine effect" by swirling the background. Put an accent to certain parts of the image by blurring the rest of it in an artistic way. It proves especially useful when the final drawing contains too many details on the background that divert attention.
You can personalize your work of art by adding an inscription (a signature or a greeting) to your pencil drawing. Also, the parameters on the Canvas let you add a rough surface to your image, as if it had been drawn on canvas, corrugated paper, brick wall, etc.
This photo to sketch software offers Batch Processing support that lets you automatically convert a series of images. You can even create comics or cartoons from your home videos in this way!
The software is available as an independent standalone program and as a plugin to a photo editor. The plugin version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro, etc. Refer to Check the compatibility page for more details.
