Step 1: Open your photo and select the Artsy effects tab. 

Step 2: Choose the Sketcher category to view the selection of effects. 

Step 3: Click on an effect to preview it, then click on the Settings icon to customize the effect:

  • Amount: How much of the effect is placed onto your image. 
  • Clutter Cleaner: Changes the amount of detail enhanced by the sketch. Higher has a cleaner look, and lower will show more of the details in the original image turned into a sketch.
  • Sketch Detail: For a more dramatic look, move sketch detail up. This will create heavier lines around your image's edges.
  • Background Color: Sets the background color of your sketch.
  • Sketch Color: Sets the color of ink in your sketch.
  • Halftone Size*: Changes the size of halftone dot overlays.
  • Dot Size*: Changes the dot overlay size.

*This parameter is only present on some Sketcher presets.

Step 4: Click Apply to save your changes. Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
