How to turn a picture into a sketch
Step 1. Install Movavi Photo Editor
Run the setup file and follow the instructions on your screen to complete the installation.
Step 2. Add your photo
Launch the app, click the Browse for Images button, and choose the image you want to edit. You can also drag the image into the program window.
Step 3. Adjust the image parameters
The outlines of objects in your selected photo should be sharp and clear. To create this effect, select the Adjust tab and increase the Contrast and Sharpness in the image by moving the appropriate sliders to the right.
Also, it’s generally better to make the image monochrome. Click the Effects tab. The list of available filters will appear on the right of the program window. Select the Grayscale filter and click Apply.
Step 4. Turn image into sketch
Go to the Effect Groups list and choose the Artistic group. Scroll down the list of filters and select the Sketch filter.
If you want to change the intensity of the filter, move the Intensity slider on the filter preview until you like the result. Click Apply to save the changes.
Step 5. Save the result
Click the Save button in the bottom right corner of the program interface. In the new window that opens, choose the format and destination folder for the output file. Then click Save.
You can use our sketching photo editor to make an ordinary photo look like a line drawing by a professional artist, as well as edit your photos in many other ways. It’s easy to bring your creative ideas to life with Movavi Photo Editor!
