Neatberry's Sketcher is a powerful, yet easy to use piece of software, which you can use when you need to turn an image into a painting.
The application features a simple and well designed interface for the job making it quite straightforward to use; in fact all you need to do is drag and drop an image onto its layout, move some sliders and turn into a digital expressionist painter. Sketcher includes a choice of four filters (pencil, watercolor, pastel and oil) and for each filter associated stroke, brush, strength and other customizable parameters. The output is indeed quite surprising as multiple canvas / paper types (grained canvas, watercolor paper, pastel paper, linen canvas and more) will turn the original image into a work of art.
Users can save their work as a project and reload with full control over all parameters at any time or directly as an image that they can share with their friends.
