FotoSketcher 3.90 is officially released (Windows version)

Hi all!

FotoSketcher 3.90 for Windows is now officially released!

Head over to to download either the standalone version (no need to install, just run the .exe file) or the version with setup.

Both versions have been digitally signed in order to avoid Windows blocking the download.

Here is a list of all changes and improvements in this release:

Main bug fixes:

  • preview would not update when changing a parameter value
  • issues when minimizing of the parameter window
  • issues with image rotation
  • program freeze when going to the website from the "About window"
  • program would sometimes freeze when changing the opacity of text

New features:

  • New Painting 11 advanced painterly effect, which allows custom brushes (transparent png images) 
  • In addition to Painting 4, possibility to run Painting 9 (watercolor) and the new Painting 11 on the current image, without starting from a blank canvas. This allows much more versatility and is supported in the scripting engine
  • Parameter files and script files made with older versions of FotoSketcher can be loaded
  • Directories for loading and saving images are saved, allowing easier navigation 
  • Directories for loading and saving scripts and custom brushes are also saved

FotoSketcher 3.90 for Windows remains 100% free, even for commercial work (e.g. selling your images produced with FotoSketcher. No royalty or attribution necessary).

Here is an example made with FotoSketcher 3.90 using the new Painting 11 effect, followed by the Painting 9 effect (with the new "Don't erase background" checkbox ticked).

Have fun!
