About FotoSketcher


I'm David, developper of a freeware program called FotoSketcher which turns photos into drawings, sketches and paintings.

I live in France, in the beautiful city of Lyon where I work as an entrepreneur and one of my main hobbies is programming. Even though I could never draw or paint very well, I have always had a keen interest in the pictorial arts.
One day back in 2007 I decided that I would try to create a small program which could draw (or sketch) better than I ever could. This is how FotoSketcher was born. Since then, I have spent countless hours programming, testing and - let's face it - debugging FotoSketcher :)

Your support on Patreon will help me to continue developing and improving FotoSketcher and I welcome your comments and suggestions. I have started to create a mobile version of FotoSketcher and have many ideas for new algorithms and artistic effects.

You can download FotoSketcher for free (even for commercial use) from

I really hope you will enjoy playing with FotoSketcher!

Best regards,
