Sketch Camera update brings new effects into play

Sketch Camera for Windows Phone

Sketch Camera is a photographic app for your Windows Phone that applies artistic filters to your images. We liked what we saw back in our review and the application was recently updated to bring a few more effects into play.

The new filters are:

  • Life on Mars (heavy sepia look)
  • Parchment
  • Alien skin
  • Wall sprayer
  • Over the foil
  • Canvass
  • Industrializer

You still have sketch, oil paint, pencil drawing, bathroom reflections and chalk effects that carried over from the previous version. The developer decided to remove the brick wall effect simply because not many liked it.

Life on Mars, Parchment, Over the Foil and Canvass Effects

Along with the new effects, there were some minor tweaks to fix some bugs and a few cosmetic changes to the photography app. The additional effects that the update brings to Sketch Camera are nice and expands the potential of a very nice camera app.

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

Sketch Camera update brings new effects into play


I'm going to get my wife a Lumia 900 when her contract expires, she'll be coming from an iPhone 4S.  Anybody know of an app that would be the equivalent of Camera+ for WP7?

Thumba for sure.  Awesome app, and only 99 cents.
PhotoFunia is also great and free.  Get her both!
