Create ASCII artwork from images.
Imgscii is a simple program that converts images into ASCII artwork. Follow the prompts and your ASCII art will be printed to your console. I plan on adding more features and improvements in the future.
You can get started by installing Imgscii using PIP:
pip install imgscii
As A Module
After you have installed the package from PIP you can import Imgscii into your project.
import imgscii imgscii.printscii("images/my-photo.jpg")
Imgscii currently supports a small set of keyword arguments.
monochrome: ASCII art will be printed with default console style… no color!
columns: Define the width of your ASCII art in columns. Aspect ratio will be maintained.
char_set: Provide your own character set.
imgscii.printscii("images/my-photo.jpg", char_set=("#", "$", "Q", "v", "j", ";", "."))
From The Console
Imgscii can be executed from the console as well. Use cd to navigate to the directory containing imgscii.pyand run the program with the following command:
You can also use command line arguments.
-m, –monochrome: Print ASCII art without colors -c, –columns: Define the width of ASCII art in columns.
