FotoSketcher 2.90 is officially released. 100% free as always.


FotoSketcher 2.90 is now officially available for download. As usual, FotoSketcher is 100% free for personal or commercial use.

Head to to get either the full version (with setup and uninstall) or the portable version.

Here are the new features and changes in this release:
  • New Painting 9 (watercolor) effect
  • Automatic check for update can be disabled manually (replace True by False in the last line of the FotoSketcher.ini file)
  • Added stronger error checking to prevent FotoSketcher from becoming unresponsive when trying to reach a non existent directory (for instance on a removed flash drive)
  • Updated some code for scripts and batch mode
  • A few small bug fixes (new bugs always crop up...)
  • Corrected the Korean language file
A special thank you to users Matthew and Ruth for their help in finding a nasty bug in the early beta version ;-)

And these were the parameters used:

Enjoy :)

Best regards,


P.S. If you like FotoSketcher and feel generous, don't hesitate to fuel my cafeine addiction by buying me a nice cup of coffee (I drink tea too!).
