How to turn a photo into a pencil drawing
Image converters can "draw" a photograph for you. (notebook image by Victor M. from Fotolia.com)

Free online tools can convert any digital photo file on your computer into a pencil drawing. You can use these stylised sketched photos in art projects, crafts or even as part of a gift. These online converters are free, and you can convert as many photos as you need into pencil drawings. Once the website has converted the digital photo, you can use a graphics program to edit or print the pencil drawing.
