FotoSketcher 3.40 beta 3 available **updated**

Hi all,

Curious and adventurous souls, trend setters and hipsters, cutting edge and impatient testers, here at long last is an available beta for FotoSketcher version 3.40:

There are still a few minor tweaks and optimizations that I'm working on, but you should be able to enjoy the new Painting 2 effect (which replaces the outdated bilateral filter).

Here is an example of this new effect (click on image to see full size):

Small caveat: at present, the preview image is a bit different to the finished result, so I still need to work on that. Better now as of beta #3.

Also, a new translation in Slovenian was kindly done by user Jadran Rudec. A warm thank you to him for helping FotoSketcher become even more international!

As always, don't hesitate to let me know if you find any bugs in this beta version, so I can iron them out before the official release.

Best regards and have fun!
