AKVIS today released version 3.0 of the Sketch plug-in for image editing software such as Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements and others.
AKVIS says Sketch is a plug-in to convert photos into pencil sketches and watercolor drawings with a convincing result. Its last version was 2.1; the jump to v.3.0 should imply a major update but no, there are only a few minor improvements and the only major difference is that v.3.0 now works for Windows Vista.
All the same, Sketch v.3.0 fixed a few bugs; it is now possible to save your favorite settings for subsequent use, and the installation method on Macintosh is simplified.
The software is free to try for 10 days, $72 when you buy.
