ASCII Art Made Easy

ASCII Art Made Easy

When I was at school, many decades ago in the dark ages. We had a computer room, with a computer. Attached to this computer was all sorts of wires, card punching data storage, a noisy dot matrix printer with sheets of sproket fed paper and a group of nerds that made up the computer club (they are all probably IT multi-millionaires by now!). If you weren’t in the club, you never got a look in. Occasionally, though, long sheets of paper would emerge with images made out of letters and would be pinned up outside the computer room. It was a boys school, so the images tended to be of bikini clad girls or motorbikes and grab the attention they did!

It’s been a long time since I have been reminded of those images, until I stumbled over a website that offers a free service converting any photo on the web to ASCII art. And it does a great job…

The input is easy…

Here are some examples I played around with…

Personally, I think that this technique is due for a revival, I will certainly consider using it in my next design job…. why not?

Visit the website yourself HERE and have some fun……
