Please... need to know how to turn a photo into a sketch. I've looked on YouTube and the only demo I can find is with Pixelmator, which seems to work very well and is very simple and user-friendly and intuitive. However, I have Pixelmator Pro and it is much more convoluted. I cannot find how to change a photo into a sketch. Why did the Pixelmator company not keep the simple interface on Pixelmator when they produced Pixelmator Pro. Pixelmator Pro is not at all intuitive. I've looked for instructions on this, but everything I've come across is to do with Pixelmator and not Pixelmator Pro.
Thank you.

Hey, Patrick. The reason we ended up not adding the Sketch effect to Pixelmator Pro is pretty simple and straightforward – it simply wasn't working smooth enough to our liking in the original Pixelmator. However, we do not rule out the Sketch effect (or other edge-detection effects) entirely. We might be adding something similar to Pixelmator Pro in the future.
