Off topic - free Android game - Gem Genie

Hi all,

Disclaimer: This post is not about FotoSketcher, but if you have an Android phone or tablet you might be interested.

Just for fun, I recently wanted to learn Android programming and I have just finished a small (and not very original...) game which is available on Google Play.

You can get it for free (no ads, no in app purchase) here:

The app is a classic match 3 casual game (à la Bejeweled or Candy Crush), but obviously much more basic. Still I find it enjoyable so if you feel like it, why don't you try to beat the high score :-)

Here are a few screenshots:

Have fun,

Watercolor example, made with FotoSketcher 2.70

Hi all,

Here is a watercolor of my hometown Lyon (or Lyons) made with FotoSketcher 2.70 (click on image to see in full size).

The original photo was taken by photographer Mouhamad BZOU

Before you ask :) I'm sorry I did not save the exact parameters I used, but I remember that I first ran the Painting 5 effect, then pressed F12 (to use the resulting picture as a new source) and then I ran the Painting 1 effect with color blending set to a high value (e.g. 160) and strength of effect to a low value (e.g. 5).
With FotoSketcher, experimenting is key!

All the best,
