A color photo can be converted into a black and white, sketch-like image using various desktop tools like Adobe Photoshop and Gimp. But if you have only a handful of photos, and you don’t want to use any tools to create a sketch paint of your own photo, here’s an online tool that does just what you need.
Dumpr is a free online service that will transform your photos into sketch in no time. The process is really simple — you have to upload a photo from your computer, and hit the button to get a sketch design which can be downloaded on your computer. You can also upload photos from your Flickr account, or simply paste a photo’s URL from the web.
The image below shows two photos. The left one is the original I uploaded on Dumpr while the right one is the sketch that was generated by this free tool:
