I converted the picture you see here with Sketch My Photo. The site is an online tool that gives you a watermarked thumbnail for free, and charges about $5 for the full-size sketch.

Dumper Sketch Tool does the pencil sketch conversion completely free, and also works with online photo sharing service Flickr.

FotoSketcher is a freeware desktop application for Windows with a variety of effects such as pen, ink and paint.

The most impressive tool of the bunch is BeFunky. It is a finely polished web-based application with many different artistic effects. It also supports basic online editing such as cropping and straightening. BeFunky lets you download the finished product — the file comes watermarked, but the watermark is in a white frame outside the edges of your picture.
