FotoSketcher is great (and safe). A reviewer apparently got a virus and points to FotoSketcher. I am always wary when downloading new software, so I ran a thorough scan before installing FotoSketcher (I use and recommend the free service Well it turns out FotoSketcher is 100% clean, as mentioned by Softonic. If you download software from reputable sources you shouldn't have any problems. As for FotoSketcher itself, it's a great little app to make paintings out of your photos. I can't believe it's free! Pros: Very simple yet powerful. Some results were incredible. It's totally free! Cons: Does not run on Macs.

FotoSketcher has a Virus. Since I installed FotoSketcher, I am observing a suspicious activity in my computer, a table in the browser opens by itself and I observed over a period of month that some folders and files were deleted from my computer and this software has also made changed to system restore folder or settings. I think, one should be very careful before installing it, I wonder why Softonic guarantees that it is virus free.
