How to Turn Photographs into Framed Paintings with Free Fotosketcher Software

Original Photo of Ryce Skytower by Eddi Haskell

Fotosketcher is a free shareware s program that you can download - and converts photographs into about 20 different types of oil paintings, drawings, pastels, and water color art pieces. It is one of the best free programs I have seen, and I am showing some effects on a portrait of Ryce Skytower that I took in December

You can chose one of several textured background like I have (the light texture option) to simulate canvas if you want. It is very easy to use.  All you have to do is upload your image and experiment with various texture and paint style combinations and see which ones you like. I am using the custom color framing choice.

You can try Fotosketcher here.  Highly recommended.  Please consider making a donation at the Fotosketcher site if you like the program.
