FotoSketcher 2.35 officially released

Hi all,

FotoSketcher 2.35 is now officially released. As usual, you can download the new version here:

Apart from the new Pencil sketch 5 effect and the addition of simplified Chinese to the list of supported languages (thank you Hebeijianke), I have also slightly tweaked the Emergence effect. If you double-click on the value to the right of the "number of iterations" slidebar (see screenshot below) the number will become MAX. This will actually treble the number of polygons. It will take a long time processing, but the result might be worth it.

By the way, this trick also works for the Painting 7 effect:

Have fun with the new version!

Here is an example (merged effects):
