FotoSketcher 4.00 - alpha 1 available for MacOS and Windows

 Dear all,

At long last an alpha version of FotoSketcher 4.00 is available!

This version is not yet finalized (a few more effects and features will be added in the final release), but it is usable on Windows 10 and 11 and on recent versions of MacOS. 

5 main different effects are available (9 variations in total):

  • Pencil sketch 1
  • Pencil Sketch 2 (B&W and color)
  • Pen & Ink 1
  • Painting 1 (watercolor)
  • Painting 2 (brushstrokes) with 4 brush options (+ custom brushes):
    • Oil painting
    • Watercolor
    • Cross hatching
    • Oil pastel

In the painting above, I have used the "start from a blank canvas" feature (available for painting 1 and 2) for the first pass, then I have unchecked the tick box for the subsequent passes, using slightly different parameters and brushes.

I hope you have fun with this new version and as usual, please let me know if you find any bugs.

All the best,
