Sketch Camera allows you to apply twelve effects filters on photos you take as well as photos you have resting in your Pictures Hub. The twelve effects include:

  • sketch
  • pencil drawing (tulips on one of the screenshots)
  • bathroom reflections (stupid filter, but we like it)
  • life on mars (sepia like effect)
  • parchment
  • alien skin
  • chalk
  • wall sprayer
  • oil paint
  • over the foil
  • canvas (really good looking)
  • industrializer

Take picture

For the times you want to take a picture and apply the filters, there is the “Take a Picture” page of Sketch Camera. You’ll find a small view finder for your camera that illustrates what the effect will look like. There is also a small preview windows showing your viewfinder without the special effects applied. To the right of the viewfinder is the shutter button (the Windows Phone camera buttons works as well) and directional arrows used to scroll through the effects. Just snap the photo, the effects are applied and the image is save to your Pictures Hub.

Should you wish to apply the filters to an existing photo, you simply side swipe over to the “Or pick from Gallery” page. Here you will be able to pull up photos from your Pictures Hub and apply the filters. Just use the directional arrows to scroll through the filters and when done, tap the save icon.

There is a trial version available for Sketch Camera that is limited to the sketch effect. The full version will run you $1.49 and you can find Sketch camera at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
