Download this free Photoshop action that creates a sketch effect with just one click. The ATN file contains four sketch actions: colored, unicolor, black and white, vintage. The action also comes with two patterns included so you have to install the PAT file before you play the action.
Simply open a new image/photo in Photoshop and play one of the actions that are labeled suggestively. Each sketch action has a different color effect that you can easily adjust. After the action is ended all the layer styles are left intact so all the settings can be adapted according to your photo brightness/contrast/color tone. The action uses a pencil sketch seamless pattern added as layer mask. To change the color, contrast, saturation, you will have to adjust the Photoshop adjustment layers that are added for every pencil sketch effect.
