    sketch program
    by alira
    I am looking to get a sketch program, can anyone tell me which is better akvis sketch or redfield sketch. Akvis is more expensive, is it worth the difference. I was trying to find a comparison between the 2 but couldn't.

    what about free sketch plugins? are there any ?

    by mcfly201
    Hi there

    i'm looking at purchasing akvis sketch and am currently trailing their standalone programme, but now i realize that is dosn't accept photoshop "psd"s.

    Do you know if their plug in version accepts "psd"s or only jpegs?

    Sketch 9 undo/redo
    by Andrew B.
    I just downloaded the Windows test drive of Sketch 9. Undo and Redo have no effect. I tried several scenarios, in the plugin and standalone.

    I have not seen any reviews of sketch matrix. I am considering sketch matrix,
    sketch master and akvis. Any help?

    re: Anyone used Sketch Matrix, Akvis or Sketch Master?

    Until you asked I'd never heard of Sketch Matrix. Surfed the net; finally found it. ( I was not terribly impressed by what I saw.

    If you're willing to spend $60 for Sketch Matrix, I'd seriously consider spending a little more and go first class with Akvis Sketch. Excellent plugin. See review for first version here:

    It's been updated many times since then. Now at ver 10.1. It's a plugin, so it can be used with Photoshop, Elements, Corel Painter, etc.

    Re: Sketch Master

    This one:
    (never heard of it; again, not impressed with what I saw/read)

    ...or the Redfield plugin?

    The Redfield plugin has a lot of options. I have it, but use it very, very seldom. It's O.K., but nothing to rave about. The examples in my opinion look better than what one can get under normal circumstances.

    Definitely download/try Akvis Sketch. The rest? Redfield perhaps. The other two? Probably not.

    The 'outline' capabilities (similar to a Find Edges filter common to most programs) of Topaz Simplify are very impressive, plus it does some pretty neat arty effects making this an attractive possibility. I would recommend a look-see on this one, too.

    Hope this helps. Welcome to RetouchPro.
