Just in time for the holiday season, I've uploaded an early test version of FotoSketcher 3.50. You can download it here: https://www.fotosketcher.com/FotoSketcher_3.50_alpha_1.0.exe
I have replaced the old Painting 4 effect (which was really dated) by a brand new painting effect. Here is an example (source photo credit Christopher Alvarenga on Unsplash):
The code is not optimized yet, so processing times can be really long. Also, this is still a proof of concept and the final effect might look somewhat different.
In particular, the brushstrokes are still a bit crude and I will try to make them more realistic in a future release.
However, I have had fun testing the new algorithm and on some images the result looked rather good, so I wanted to give you a test version for you to play with.
I wish you all a Merry Xmas and happy holidays!
