Make Pencil Sketches of Digital Photos in one step

I'm not really a talented sketch artist(I don't know how to do it) but I always enjoyed watching professionals make sketches during tennis and football matches they showed on TV. Hey! I can still make nice sketches though; Not with pencils, but with one or two mouse clicks! And they look as good as professional sketches.

Here's a nice little site that has really interested me. provides several features to tweak pictures; one of them was Instant Sketch, which can be used to create sketches from pictures.

All one has to do is upload a picture. Once uploaded, Instant Sketch will generate a sketched image of the original picture which you can download or mail it to friends.
You can either upload images from your computer or provide the links of images on the web.

One good use is for people who wish to remain anonymous on the Internet. Pictures can be and are easily misused on the Web. So if you are uncomfortable with sharing your pictures in forums and other social networking sites, just get a sketched image of your photos and show them off.
