"I'm the kinda guy who unsubscribed from every email list I was on in 1999... But their excitement was contagious, and before I knew it, I was plunking down my address." - Derek Powazek
A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
If you’re old-skool like us, you remember hurrying home from school, heading straight for your room, and hunching over your keyboard to log into your favorite MUD, slay dragons, and find treasure.
It was a simpler time. A time when computers didn’t have fancy graphics and candy-colored buttons, and if they wanted to show you a cranky green ogre, they didn’t use CG. They used our friends “|”, “\”, “/”, and “.”
Miss it? Well pop in an Air Supply cassette and surf over to Photo2text. Upload a photo and shiny metal robots turn it into in-stant ASCII. Retro-spiff.
High-contrast photos work best, and your file has to be smaller than 200K. Make a few high-tech adjustments, then take it low-fi at Photo2text.
p.s. Want more ASCII art? Check out Christopher Johnson’s ASCII Art Collection, featuring the always-popular “Naked Ladies” section [Maybe not safe for work.. but people, it's ASCII!] And don’t miss the ASCII Art Dictionary or Joan Stark’s ASCII art. If that last page doesn’t take you back, nothing will. It uses java!!
p.p.s. Mac user? Check this out: you can play Quicktime movies as ASCII movies!
