Here is a free tool to convert a normal picture (photo) into a painting sketch, pencil drawn sketch and much more. In case you want to impress your Facebook friends with new avatar or you need to upload images to other portals, you may add this kind of effect to have a cool looking picture without putting much effort of Photoshop or other tool.

I am talking about FotoSketcher which is available for Windows PC and it is available to download for free. You just need to land to the home page of this tool, and download a copy. Install the same on your computer and start using it. Go ahead and upload the picture in that tool to have a nice looking sketch of the same. Here is what I got after running this tool on one of my picture taken near “Hotel Taj, Mumbai”.
