JixiPix's PhotoArtista-Sketch runs under Mac,iPad&iPhone operating systems apart from Windows. It converts your photo into a sketch with wispy lines and delicate shading to achieve a light but fine rendered drawing. In contrast to most digital art media, Artista-Sketch comes very close to hand-drawn artwork seen only before in sketches created by human artists. Getting a similar result using traditional pencils would require expert training or extensive manipulation using an image editing application. Features of Artista-Sketch include the fine-tuning of Pencil Outline, Outline Accuracy, Outline Strength, Shade Variation, Shadow Strength, Stroke Texture and Pencil Color. It also works with Artistic and Aged Paper, comes with in-built Presets, gives Full Resolution Output, and Email capability. The software is extremely customizable too. You can easily alter many of its features to suit your requirements viz. Sketch Style, Pencil Outline,Outline Accuracy,Outline Strength,Shade Variation,Shadow Strength,Pencil Color,Paper Tint,Paper Thumbnails,Shade Thumbnails,Edge Thumbnails etc. Artista-Sketch supports Hi-Res Images. It can be installed on all Windows versions i.e. XP or later 32/64-bit.
