photo editing pencil effect

PicsArt is an app with a LOT of features, and that’s why we like to use our Daily Inspirations as a way to help you discover them. Today, we’re shining the spotlight on the #PencilEffect! Used with the right images, it can add a powerful punch, as it creates a hand-sketched effect, turning your photographs into hand-drawn pictures in seconds. We love the way it looks on images with strong lines and angles, especially ones featuring architecture.

The best part is, you can customize how to incorporate the Pencil Effect. Perhaps you want to retain some of the color in your image and give it a look like someone traced over it? It’s easily adjustable! Or, you could apply the Pencil Effect to select portions of your image, which we show you how to do in our latest tutorial. Whatever you decide, submit your images today with the hashtag #PencilEffect and we’ll feature our favorites in the app tomorrow!
