ASCII Art is a powerful generator that converts digital pictures into amazing looking text art. Output art to both black/white text and full color, with the ability to export plain text, html, tif, and rtf files. A user editable character set adjusts the available characters to be used, while the maximum character width option controls the finished product size. Real time previews make for easy source image tweaking, allowing for the best possible results to be obtained.

Compatible source images include jpeg, png, gif, bmp, psd, tif, tga, jpg, tiff, and more. Output quality greatly depends on the input file. Often images such as clip art work better than sources such as digital pictures. High image contrast and a clean white background always helps. Your milage may vary, experiment

  1. I just bought ASCII Art for Mac OS, but when I try to export, the app freezes when I hit “save”.

    My OS version is 10.12.6.


    1. Hi Hugo, I just tried on 10.13.3 and didn’t have any issues. Does it crash right as you’re pressing Export? Could you send the crash log details to so I can investigate? I don’t have 10.12 installed on any of my systems at the moment to try.

  2. I am having the same issue as Hugo on Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6. Is this issue resolved, looks like it a very old issue.
