    wow, that's pretty sweet! :D

    I wonder if he wrote the code himself for that or found it some where. Nicely done, regardless.

    Wow, good job! That is pretty cool, I bet it could make a pretty nifty wallpaper, too! It reminds me...last year my roommate took most of the year to make a picture of a nude woman in MS Paint using nothing but random computer characters. At a distance, you couldn't tell, all you could see is the woman until you get up close and see all the random characters.

    Ah, great!

    So what did you create if from - a jpg or gif image?

    Converting the pixel to a letter and giving it the same color was a nice touch.

    Also, what did you use to create it? And have you tried the same technique on any other images? Image sizes?

    Cool!

    Did you use some software (I'm assuming you don't have that much spare time!)

    [edit]: I see Mr A asked the same question seconds before me![/edit]

    Yeah, I used some software that I'm working on coding to create it. It converts jpegs, gifs, pngs, and bmps to html colored characters. For this one I used a jpg. I'll see if I can get one made using ASCII characters.

    Here's one done of my nano reef aquarium using the text "NANOREEF" http://www.reefaquarist.com/ascii.html

    Ah, very nice - but I see one of the issues I think you're dealing with....keeping the pixels square. What sort of configuration are you using in terms of font control to get the images close to the same pixel aspect ratios?

    It depends on which character string you use. Using all caps, or numbers usually works out well. If I were to have used the string "powermac" instead of "G5" the image would look shorter and stretched out because lowercase letters are shorter.
