To take you on a walk-through of the service, I have set up an account so I can apply this very cool pencil-sketch effect on a digital photo. Here you can see the result of the effect I applied in a matter of seconds:

Before and After Preview

As soon as you log in, you can browse through and select from a expansive range of digital photo effects including vintage, black/white filters, or even make your photos look like old Polaroids. To get the sketch-like effect like the one shown above, navigate to the Extreme Stylized effects and select the pencil sketch effect.

Select an effect by clicking on the preview

By clicking one of the previews, it will take you to a page where you can upload your photo. It will open a window for you to easily select the image to process and after a few surprisingly short moments, it will be uploaded to the site and processed.

Uploading photo dialogue

After the image is uploaded, Rollip will show you a preview of the effect applied on the original photo. By pressing the Click here to process in high-quality button, Rollip will further refine and process your image again, applying the full high-quality effect.
