Quickly convert your images back to the days of line-printer art!

Take images from your picture collection, or paste in an image you've copied from anywhere, and it will instantly be converted to ASCII characters that form a crude approximation (which was at one time state of the art).

Change what group of characters it uses, make it black on white or white on black, adjust for font spacing and line width, and then either copy the results or directly email them (in either raw ASCII text or HTML to help maintain the appearance).

NB: Despite what iTunes may think - this REQUIRES OS 3.0
