FotoSketcher Portable is probably the fastest and easiest way to add a sketch effect to your pictures. Plus you can carry it on a USB memory device and you don't even need to install it!
FotoSketcher Portable is perfect for those of you who don't dare use Photoshop yet and simply want to add some spice to your photos without much fuss. Simply run the program and select the picture you want to sketch. The program will show a settings menu with a bunch of options: you'll be able to select the drawing style, edge threshold and also tweak the values of color, brightness and contrast.
The sketch effect is then applied in just a few seconds, and the result will be displayed side to side to the original picture, which is great for comparison FotoSketcher Portable also lets you add a text caption and embellish your sketch with a frame.
There are only a couple of minor drawbacks to FotoSketcher Portable: it only works with JPG and BMP files, and if you add a text caption to the image, you won't be able to see it on the preview window.
