I would like to convert a photo into Ascii art. I want to reproduce the effect shown here: http://purtyy.com/?/web/darevancouver/

What's the best way of doing this? I have tried some of the online Photo-to-Ascii services, but the outputted images are too big, so the text is too tiny.

The services I have tried are: http://www.text-image.com/convert/ascii.html http://www.glassgiant.com/ascii/ http://photo2text.com/Default.aspx

Is there a better way?

    On 2 of the websites you mentioned the output size can be defined. Don't just upload a photo. Play with the settings too. P.S. Add a line between your links. (I could not edit it)

I had to look up an archive of your link, but I see the effect you're after. Try this ascii art generator. You can control output size, character set, contrast, even shape accuracy, and when it's just right you can save to an image.

  • Yeap, wellcome. I will just add something. The image must be well prepared before converting it, on this site or any other. I probably would increase the contrast to have a well defined image.
