ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is character encoding based on the english alphabet. ASCII art refers to the way that graphics were created by using text only…its old school so to speak. The most basic form of this would be the smiley face ; )
Some people have created some amazing images with just text characters- now you can be one of those people.
Photo2text.com is a cool simple to use application to convert your photos to ASCII art in 3 steps. So you don’t have to do all that intense typing and spacing!
Simply upload a photo with a maximum file size of 200 kb. When uploaded, enter a nickname for the picture.
Then when your file is ready you can adjust the brightness of the image- which changes what is picked up by the text. You can also choose what kind of character set you would like your image to be displayed in. You can have your own personal link for your photo.
You can even do a Matrix style conversion in all binary 1′s and 0′s.
