Hi David! Wow! How did you do that landscape picture? It would be nice if you would publish every step that you made to all of your awesome pictures. I love them, really, but when I use the Effets the results of my tries aren't that comparible to yours. Thank you very much!

Hi Chrillinho,

I'm glad you like FotoSketcher and I've wanted for a long time to create a tutorial (and I will definitely make a proper help file someday...).

I will soon write a full post on this blog on how to use many of the features of FotoSketcher. This will be a step by step tutorial, so your wish will be granted!

However, I'm busy finishing a new version of FotoSketcher, which will have a slightly different interface (lighter colours, icon bar, rearranged menus...).

I will therefore write the tutorial for the new version, when it is released (hopefully in a few weeks' time).

Best regards,
