    - Skinned menus for all three themes (tip: press the INS key to cycle through the interface themes)

    - Added a new check box to double the size of the manual brush (useful for high resolution images, when the max size was too small)

    - The most important bug fix concerns Windows Vista users who were sometimes getting a cryptic error message in French "Index de liste hors limite (-1)". Hopefully this is now solved

    - The popup menu was showing incorrectly in the scripts window

    - Some corrections to the Korean language files (thanks JaeHyung)

    Install includes OpenCandy.
    Fotosketcher itself is fine, and if you avoid OpenCandy (here OpenCandy is blacklisted on HOSTS file) then you can get the medicine without the snake.
    One star here because I am fed up with OpenCandy and all of the sort included it installation applications.
    There is, on the developer's page, a portable version which, consequently, is free of OpenCandy parasite.

    Minor deduction for additional toolbar install (minor because it's there and website has that layout where you might click and download something else thing going on).

    As far as the program goes, I like it. I use Photoshop myself but for some simple filter effects, it's not a bad program. And though I haven't used any modern Photoshop (just 5.5), the filters here seem to create some better effects.

    I like the pen and ink and painting effects. You can adjust the filter effects, save them, load them and reset. Great freebie.

    Downloaded and tried it once again to see if there was an improvement from 2010. Well, I guess not. And, as I said last time, it surely doesn´t rate a 5. Once again I wasted my time.

    Surely, it doesn't rate a five. A bit too complicated and the results are not impressive.
