InstantPhotoSketch 2.0
Transform any photo into a pencil sketch

InstantPhotoSketch is an easy-to-use tool for converting digital images (JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, BMP) into pencil sketches.

Trying this out can be as simple as opening your target file, and clicking "Create Sketch" (the green "Play" button in the centre of the toolbar). The program immediately transforms your image into a pencil sketch.

If you're not happy with the results then they can be tuned with the two sliders above the image. Reducing "black level" will produce lighter brush strokes, while adjusting "white level" appears to alter image brightness and contrast.

The Preview window updates in real time to show the effects of your fine-tuning. A Zoom tool allows you to focus on a particular detail, and once you're happy, the finished results may be saved as a JPG or PNG file.


InstantPhotoSketch is extremely basic, with only a single effect. This does work reasonably well, though, so if you're not happy with your current "sketch" effect (or you don't have one at all) then it's worth a try.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
