Textorizer isn’t exactly an ASCII art generator but similar. While a typical ASCII art makes use of random characters to generate an image, Textorizer takes user defined words or texts and generates an image out of it.
Open the application, choose an image and load any Word document or text file you have saved on your computer as the source text. Click on Textorize and watch as the words take the shape of the image. Play around with the various sliders – color, saturation, font scale etc to get the desired effect.
