New FotoSketcher tutorial

Hi all,

I have been asked time and time again to write a proper help file or at least a new tutorial. So far, I've always been too lazy busy to do so, but I'm happy to announce a brand new 8 page tutorial (packed with information for both new and more advanced users).

If you've never used FotoSketcher before, this tutorial will help you grasp the basics (open an image file, apply an effect, save your masterpiece).

If you're already familiar with FotoSketcher, this tutorial will show you some tricks you may not know yet, like applying transparent text to your drawing or painting.

Here is the tutorial in .pdf format:

And here is the online version (thanks to the great solution):

And remember: don't be afraid to experiment with FotoSketcher :)

All the best,

Hi all,

The new version of FotoSketcher (v 3.30) is now available. As usual, you can head over to to download either the full (with setup) or portable 32bit versions.
If have a 64bit bit version of Windows, I encourage you to use the 64bit versions of FotoSketcher, available from the official mirror website here:

I hope you will have fun experimenting with FotoSketcher :) Be creative!

Screenshots of FotoSketcher 3.30:

 drag the red line with your mouse to stop any effect at x%

 when opening a source image, click in the top right corner for a large preview

in painting 10, load custom brushes (in transparent .png format)
you can also double the size of the brushstrokes (check the x2 tick box)

 if you press the END key on your keyboard, you can toggle long filenames ON or OFF

 with long filenames ON, the effect used and associated parameters will be saved in the filename
