Review: Chic Sketch App

Chich Sketch sketch picMany people have asked where I got the sketches for the logo on Hi-Tech Chic. Well it’s not brain surgery to start. It’s a new awesome app called Chic Sketch that transforms a picture of yourself into a sleek and fashionable sketch. Emily Brickel, illustrator, is the talent behind the sketches for Chic Sketch as she creates a photo you submit into a beautiful sketch. cs starting

How do I get started you ask? First you need to download the app either from Google Play or the Apple Store and once installed you will see the little icon on your screen. Next log in using your facebook or instagram account and it will take you to the first page named “Public Gallery.” On this page you will see previous sketches that have been done and a little camera icon on the bottom.

When you click on the camera icon you are taken to the Snap a photo page. At this point you can either snap a picture or use a picture from your camera gallery. This is your selfie moment or finding that hot picture you have in your smartphone gallery. Once you have chosen a picture, the next screen is to confirm the picture.

CS getting startedAfter confirming your photo you are taken to the confirmation of terms page where it also informs you on the cost for the sketch which is currently $9.99 per each sketch. The next page shows you how your sketch could look (not using your photo but examples of previous sketches) and also where you accept  and confirm photo and terms of services. The final step is payment. Users have the option to check out or enter a promo code. After that it’s just a matter of entering your credit card or other method of payment and fully checking out! Users should also receive a confirmation email as well.

Pretty easy and I was VERY impressed with my sketches. Try Chic Sketch out and let me know what you think!
