Quick look at this program shows potential for "artifying" photos at a very reasonable price. Have not purchased, however, because (1) image cannot be moved in preview window when fine tuning with sliders, (2) application does not remember window size settings on launch and, most important, (3) while final render when saving appears far better than previews, the understandable demo watermark is so busy that the saved results cannot really be evaluated. Good start, though; I'll watch it.

Having paid and downloaded (via browser and MU) I'm unable to activate or register or use Sketcher - the relevant links are greyed out. Help please.

My current version of Sketcher (1.2) was purchased through MacUpdate. I see now that there is a more recent version. The app doesn't seem to have a "Check for updates" option. How could I update what's installed to a newer one?

By far the easiest way to keep this and all of your apps up to date is with MacUpdate Desktop (www.macupdate.com/desktop). Alternatively, you can download the new version and drag it to your Applications folder, replacing version 1.2.

Which is sorta kinda the route I took. I remembered having MU's little brother, the free MU Menu, installed. Sure enough the app icon was there in the list. A couple of clicks later version 1.3 was on my desktop. Thanks for the prompt reply, Ryan!

Thank you. Even at the regular price, this ranks up there with the far more expensive apps that come close to doing what this app does. As a professional graphic designer, this app makes me look like a expert AND the results you get are GREAT

It's a fun little app. Bought it, downloaded it and quickly came up with some very pleasing watercolors that looked completely "unPhotoShopped". But one problem. I can't Save. I can Export to TIFF or JPG, but can't Save in native format. Just says "Error creating file". Bug? (Absolutely nothing shows up in Console log when it fails.) 10.6.8 on an Intel Mac.

Purchased, downloaded, and installed. I'm not seeing all the features that are posted in the user guide video on the developer site, such as paint blend and water mix. I never had to insert a serial number either. What's the deal?

Hi, "Paint Blend" and "Water Mix" were removed in the last version. "Paint Blend' is Oil + Pastel, "Water Mix" is Watercolor +Pastel. We have removed them since version 1.2 was extended with color pencil, new oil painting options and so on - the app's been focused on truly UNIQUE filters.

Actually, I'm not sure I was prompted to paste in a serial number and perhaps this is the problem. Is there a demo only version and perhaps I need to activate the full version by pasting the serial number somewhere?

Hi Pozo, are you still having issues? I just tried the download link and it seems to be working fine on my end. http://neatberry.com/files/sketcher/Sketcher.dmg

Using Safari? Check your Downloads folder. You don't get any indication it's downloading, just a blank tab/window in Safari, but it should still show up in the Downloads folder.

interesting app that yields a wide range of effects. if it had the ability to save image manipulation settings as presets, i'd probably shell out for it.

Since version 1.2 app support own document type. Not quite presets, of course, but at least you can save your favorite settings.

Excellent little app that is Best-in-Class compared to Corel Painter's Auto Paint or Photoshop's Artistic Effects Filters. And it is superior to Adobe PixelBender. It is also superior to Corel Painter's Sketch effect filter. This is the best Watercolor/Opaque watercolor effect filter I've seen so far, at any price. This app saves time when using Adobe Photoshop's Brush engine to convert an image to a painterly effect.
