    By the way another alternative to save a regular image file as ASCII art is with the GIMP. I just found about this nice GIMP feature right now.

    The produced ASCII art pictures are not readable though just like with ASCII Pic. The way to save to ASCII with the GIMP.

    Save As -> Click (Select File Type triangle) to display the available options.->(Choose ASCII Art and exact format txt / html etc.)

    Thank you for another fantastic post. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such information.

    Hi Georgi, great stuff. I've played with asc2gen. What' I've found been lacking is a way to get the formatting and extended character set working consistently in online forums and blogs, making it more accessible for internet users. I happen to have hand-written such a tool from the ground up, and it all works in the browser: http://ascii.zzl.org

    Just drop in a jpeg, and copy and paste your ascii, html, bbcode, or an image! It does color, and lets you tweak the brightness range and sub-character precision. I'm constantly improving it (it's a live beta), but if you'd have a look (ideally in Chrome or IE), I'd really appreciate your endorsement.

    Hi, thank you very much for this fantastic post. It reminds me to the time when i was young and started as a programmer in a mainframe environment where ascii art was the only way of printing pictures. We also had to to charts with ascii Characters. The result looks similar to the ones we made that time. Since i am working now a lot in linux consoles this is a fantastic way of creating ascii pictures. Thanks.
