Creating Your Coloring Pages
Once you log into your account, upload your photos. Choose the first photo that you want to convert. Then choose Artsy Effects. To create a coloring page, choose Sketcher. Sketcher has two options: Clutter Cleaner and Sketch Detail. You will have to play around with these settings to get the effect you want.
Clutter Cleaner – This is used to remove unwanted details from the picture. For example, if a child is standing in front of a textured wall, the clutter cleaner can be used to remove the texture. This creates much cleaner pages for coloring.
Sketch Detail – This creates fewer or more lines. If it is set too low, necessary lines may not show up. If it is set too high, you may have far more lines and details than you want.
When you are happy with your coloring page, you can save it to your computer. Just go to Save and choose To Computer. Once it has been downloaded, you can print a copy for your kids to color.
