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):

All the best,

On Windows XP the "débordement d'entier" error message still appears at startup in v. 2.35 like in the previous version (v. 2.25 was ok).
But after getting past the error message the program seems to work normally.
I use the portable version.

Hi Leo,

Thank you for your feedback. I believe that the error message comes from a hidden bug in the interface code. I am therefore currently working on a complete rewrite of the interface, without any third party code. I still wanted to release version 2.35, as the "débordement d'entier" message is harmless and does not prevent FotoSketcher from working.

Best regards,

Bonsoir David,
super logiciel avec plein de possibilités.
Connaissez vous un logiciel, du même genre que le vôtre qui transformerait une photo (paysage par exemple) en une image abstraite avec plein de couleurs?
En préparation peut être ?
