I just tried a program today. It's called FotoSketcher. You can use it for turning your photos into art. I really had fun playing with it. There are two great things about this program:
1) It's easy to use, it's simply playing, and
2) It's free! Can you believe that?
Below are some of my "art" after using the program. What do you think?
I don't have any commission for promoting this program. The owner does not even know me. I just want to let you know because I enjoyed using it.
I wrote a full blown article about Turning Your Photo Into Art in my HubPages: Wait-Dont-Delete-that-Photo-Turn-Your-Photo-Into-Art?
