Hi folks - I just noticed that over on Giveaway Of The Day they are offering two packages that TechSmith users may find interesting.

One is a software that converts images to sketch drawings. The other is a screen recording application.

Remember, with this site you MUST download and install and activate the software today only. You cannot download, then wait until tomorrow or next week or next month to install it. If you do, you will have to pay to be able to use it.

Why is the free download 53MB when the program sold by the developer directly is only 11MB?

Beats me! I simply saw it and thought it looked interesting. Maybe you could post that question on the GOTD site? Sometimes I note the the software developers are good at responding to questions.

I'm so swamped right now that I am at risk of missing a script deadline.  BTW, I notice that the effects look a lot like the old Microsoft Image Composer effects (vastly underrated).  That program still works on my Windows 10 PC.

I downloaded, but could not get the sketch app to install; its installer required a "free" key? which I requested 2x but never received

I did run a security scan on all its files; reported as "clear"

When I downloaded and ran the EXE, I clicked the button to get a free key. That button launched a web site where I filled in a form and the next page presented the key. Copied the key and pasted into the field presented by the installer and off I went. Seemed to install just fine.
