Projects / Jitac


Jitac is a Java application that converts images into ASCII art by associating blocks of the image with ASCII characters. It supports several image formats (GIF, JPEG, TIFF, and PNG) and some image manipulations that can be performed before the conversion (inversion, grayscale, resize, and gamma correction).

            Jitac... people you are crazy.
            When I wrote this little application, I didn't expect any response.
            But for some strange reason people seem to be interested in
            Image To ASCII Conversion.
            I thought I could ignore this and tried to continue with my rather
            serious projects, but... I was wrong.

            So here I am. If you have generated impressing artwork using
            Jitac post an URL, if you need new features, just say a word and
            if you think this all is crap, well, okay!
