From Photo To Text Art

Isn't it amazing how easy it is to edit photos with image editing software? With ASCII, offered by Sourceforge for free, Windows XP and Vista systems, you can do more than touch-ups and repairs. You can create art. (I read this tip on a Kim Komando newsletter and checked it out for myself.)

You can take a photograph and convert it into text known as ASCII art. The resulting image is composed completely of text, but you can still read what it says.

You just download the app, then load a photo into the program, and it is transformed automatically into text. Then you can save the image as an image file or a text file.

There are settings that allow you to adjust contrast, brightness, etc. plus you can colorize it for a special effect.

Takeaway Truth

Free is good. Always.
