This application is useful for some of the art I like to do, although it's lacking some key features. There is no way to change the font/typeface, size, color, or Unicode character support for text output, which I would have expected. Several art to ascii websites that are completely free to use offer everything this app does and more. I'm hoping that the developer will improve upon this fun application, because it has potential.


I was able to get the ascii part to work, but not the brush / photo part to work. I'm running 10.6.8 on a fast MacPro, so there should be no problem. Worth only two stars for the working ascii part of this program. Maybe it will be fixed in future updates.

Pretty cool!

Bring me back to the days when ASCII photos consider high-tech. very cool!
