Curious and adventurous souls, trend setters and hipsters, cutting edge and impatient testers, here at long last is an available beta for FotoSketcher version 3.40: https://www.fotosketcher.com/FotoSketcher_3.40_beta3.zip
There are still a few minor tweaks and optimizations that I'm working on, but you should be able to enjoy the new Painting 2 effect (which replaces the outdated bilateral filter).
Here is an example of this new effect (click on image to see full size):
Also, a new translation in Slovenian was kindly done by user Jadran Rudec. A warm thank you to him for helping FotoSketcher become even more international!
As always, don't hesitate to let me know if you find any bugs in this beta version, so I can iron them out before the official release.
Best regards and have fun!
