Do you know what ASCII art is? If you didn't use a computer in the stone age of computing, you probably don’t know what it is about.

Long ago, computer geeks amused themselves by creating two-color pictures made from text symbols called ASCII art (ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange). But even now, in the age of high-resolution monitors and expensive gadgets, there are fans of computer art that turns photo into text. You can still find websites and services that are able to turn your image to ASCII.

So, do you want to try to convert your photo to text? Then don’t hesitate to give this effect a go! By the way, unlike many other ASCII art generators, this image to ASCII effect retains the color in your pictures. We believe that makes it even more fun!

Are you a fan of ASCII art now? We definitely are! :)
