Meet the ‘Drawing vs Photography’ Artistic Illusions on

Ingenious blendings of photos and drawings, created by the Belgium artist Ben Heine, inspired us to design our own series of photo effects in the ‘Drawing vs Photography’ style.

Artistic photo manipulations in Pencil vs Reality style on free photo editor


Sometimes a photo is not enough to express the mood and idea of an image in your head. This is when an artistic touch may become necessary. Our new effects turn part of a photo into a sketch or drawing, showing how art emerges from reality. Each template demonstrates different drawing tools, each of them with its own mood and surrounding. Thereby, you can choose and apply effects following your mood and virtu.

See for yourself!

Let the sky fall, we will keep new effects coming. And as usually we have all kinds of new effects in stash: a baby card for new mothers, a summer photo montage for travelers, an underwater filter for dreamers… And even two fancy effects that can turn your photos into very unusual drawings.
