Very quick and easy download and installation on Win 10 laptop. Just read the rules and follow them. I had this programme in the past and I shall look forward to seeing how it behaves now - thanks!

The software from this company is generally very good, but, like others who commented, all GOTD offers from this company that I have downloaded have revert to trial status after a few months, despite there being no mention of this limitation in the offer.
GOTD, we love your site, but why is this sanctioned?

SoftOrbits, would you care to comment?

Seamless installation on my Win7 x64, and super-easy and super-fast registration. I'm looking forward to using this program! Thank you, GAOTD and SoftOrbits!

Just uninstalled another SoftOrbits software that was given away previously.
On its own, it had reverted to Trial status.
When I tried to run it, it said the trial period is over.
When I tried to re-activate using the key from the Giveaway,
it said the key can only be used during the Giveaway period.
Thus the software became un-useable.
Therefore, will not be downloading this Sketch Drawer giveaway.

Page pops up when you uninstall software. It lets you fill in many boxes and reason for discarding the program. Then when you submit...

Nothing I could find would get the small square preview
OFF of the real image. Nothing could I find to push a pre/side by post/side like your helpful vids say should be the software norm.
After having interference over and over and over it was time to trash the program.

I just finished uninstalling this program from a previous giveaway. Reason being that the license was revoked after just a few Months of use.I re-installed it again and so far I am not impressed with this giveaway either.
I think that I will take the XP Man up on his offer.
Thank you GOTD for the download but I am uninstalling this one

I got the download link send to my email-adress, downloaded the program and started to install it.
But trying to get the free activation code failed due to an error in the program. I tried to install it 10 times without success. So no sketch drawer for me. shit!

I did not receive four different emails with my activation link name. Another name in the activation activation link came immediately.
What do you have against my name?

Ulla,
There's no requirement that you tell the truth for these type of questions.

For an address I use 1 Main Street.

For a phone number, I use the universal number for information.

Etc.

Downloaded using the email link. Relatively fast download. Installation was easy and the code was immediately provided. No issues with installation. Program started fast. Images loaded into frame quickly. Tried this on a few photos. Initial results were less that satisfying but I'll keep it to see what happens with some more photos and some different settings.

Interface was fine and easily manageable. Does NOT take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

I tried it on some photo, downloaded from the internet.
Also I executed a command 10 times and every time the result was different. Sometimes good and sometimes not.
Also one effect after another effect.
Some examples:

When I last went to use the previous giveaway, it said: Sketch Drawer has been deactivated. Click here to buy...
Had to uninstall it, I think I'll save myself the install/uninstall cycle and pass on their trial ware.

BobbyA, BTW the one that deactivated was also version 4.2

I've had a number of giveaways from them. The sketch program I've updated repeatedly each time a new version is given away. It does a good job. Programs remain registered for me and don't revert to trial versions.

This reCaptcha to submit comments is very tedious.

There is a very good free program at the following link:-

Their gallery gives you a very good idea of its capabilities.

I always enjoy your comments! I remember all the way back to when you were Win98-Boy.

Free is better than this! I cannot get it to register.

How does this differ from Sketch Drawer 4.2 that was offered here on 20 December 2016? Are there bug fixes that mean I should uninstall what I previously got via GAOTD and reinstall using today's file? TIA.

Download, open installer, click "get key" button - you'll be redirected to an online form. Just enter your email address. The email took a minute or two for me to get there - and did not give me a key, instead it sent me an activation link which once clicked prompted me to create an account (requesting name, last name, country, date of birth) please NOTE: you can click "Not now" at the bottom and you will still receive an activation key. The key was accepted in the installer and it proceeded.

When you open Sketch Drawer, it'll annoyingly open a webpage saying "Thank you" and also present you with a window in the application itself targeted to today's GOTD users with discount offers for the full versions of this, and other of their programs.

The program itself has a nice Office 2007-like interface, glossy but not tacky. There are a lot of presets which can be further customized to achieve different, interesting results.

The program also has a lot of themes, which despite their names do not change any icons, but only the colors of the panels behind them. Don't bother with the Tools>Options dialog by the way, it's too complex and for advanced users only ;)

Overall, I think it works nicely, it's fun around to play with and I see a few uses I and possibly others could find for it.
