However, if you are not the artistic type who can design or build something from scratch, you can also rely on various software solutions, such as PhotoToText9, that can turn your images into ASCII creations that are bound to impress everyone.
Convert images to text using one of the two provided methods
The application comes with a minimalistic GUI (graphic user interface) so that even novices, who have little to no experience working with software, can still make out its functions.
Basically, you need to start by choosing which mode you want to use for processing your graphic file, depending on the the type of outcome you are aiming for, a colored or a black and white one.
Convert your source image to custom text
Due to PhotoToText9, you can navigate to the location of the image you are interested in, then effortlessly convert it to a text arrangement.
The best part about it is that you get to paste or type the text you want to be included in the output file - this can come in especially handy if you want to send a message to the person you want to give the text to.
Alternatively, you can select the source color that you want to emphasize in the resulting color image.
Save the processed image as a text or an image file
All in all, PhotoToText9 can prove to be a reliable application for all those who want to give a special present to someone or they are simply looking to have some fun.
However, only one source image can be converted at a time, so if they want to process several of them, they also need to be willing to spend some extra time until they are all done.
