Some users have reported a visual bug in version 2.95 (the skinned menus would flicker a lot).
I have completely rewritten all menus and the problem is now hopefully gone.
If you were experiencing the visual glitch in 2.95, here is a beta version for you to try: http://www.fotosketcher.com/FotoSketcher_2.96_beta2.exe
Can you let me know if it works OK for you?
*** 8th september update *** beta2 is available (link above is updated) which solves a few cosmetic problems, and also adds a new "X 2" button for Painting 7 (brushstrokes), which doubles the maximum brush size. This is useful for large images to retain a painterly look. Beware, this can be computer-intensive!
