The hottest new trend in photo editing is sketch. You can take any photo of yourself — or your friends or favorite celebs — and create a sketch for an artistic effect. How does it work? The Sketch effects automatically detect the outlines of your portrait and instantly transform your photo, saving you hours of drawing time. How cool is that? Try it on your selfies or with friends and family for a fun, trendy, and modern edit. Take any portrait image and turn it into a major masterpiece in just one tap.

Create a Sketch Drawing
in Seconds

If you’re an artist you know that drawing a sketch can take time, but with PicsArt’s Sketch Effects, it only takes a second! The longest part of the process is finding the perfect selfie or portrait to use. Once you have it, all you have to do is tap once and you’ll see your pic transformed right before your very eyes.

Choose Any Color Line
or Background

Turn up the volume on your edit by changing the background or line color to whatever color combination fits your style and mood. Go simple with a white or black line or pump it up with a neon yellow or bright pink. The possibilities are endless so just play around to see what looks best with your photo.
