A utility for converting raster images (BMP, PNG, JPG, etc) into an ascii art text.


Although there's several programs that accomplish this basic feat, almost all of them are lacking in some specific way... either they don't generate particularly useful or artistic images, they don't use much of the ASCII set, and in particular, don't allow you to configure your character choice and use extended characters available in modern fonts.


  • Convert most common image formats to ascii art. Output is black and white, but color images work fine as inputs.
  • Competely configurable character set through databases, and on-the-fly character changes. Is one character being used too much? Disable it and run it with a smaller/different set quickly and easily.
  • Save results as text, a PNG snapshot of the finished product, and a detailed binary file for use in programming.
  • Utilize any character in the font set (in this case, Consolas) even extended unicode characters
  • Now (1.1), with limited color support.


This program has a sister application, used to edit the images it produces: AsciiEdit
