Creating pictures from text was one of the earliest ways that images were displayed on old-style computers.  Back in the 1970's I was amazed when, at a visit to an open day at a Texas Instruments factory in my home city, a printout picture of my face using only text characters was created by one of their computers there.  It's quite possible that this was what one of the things that got the young me entralled so much in the possibilities of these computermabobs.  Now in the 21st century with 3D technology and true-colour graphics, the simplicity of ASCII art is a refreshing reminder of the origins of computing. Even in these modern times, this type of art can be a great way to show your creativeness in places like forums and personal profile pages on sites that you are a member of.  

You can create your own text art from your existing photos or pictures using Springfrog's
ASCII art generator.  Our ASCII art gallery here shows a few examples of the amazing images you can produce.  The generator will allow you to copy and paste the actual
characters of text output wherever you like.  The images below are cut from screen captures, converted back to in gif format for convenience of display here on this page.
