mosascii m2 is an application that converts an image into an HTML mosaic made out of ASCII characters. The HTML mosaics look just like the original image except they are created out of colored ASCII characters. mosascii m2 has lots of features, such as image actions and effects, different modes for the mosaics (custom text, numbers, letters, binary, etc). mosascii m2 can be used for fun, or educational use. Now supports animated HTML mosaics.

    Works like a charm. If you could add the said feature below that would be cool though.

    Or if you could combine colour brightnesses with pixel brightnesses to get a really spiffy looking image...

    tbaster, mosascii was never intended to generate ascii art like that, although i did add support for that kind of ascii art in one version (unreleased), and i may put it back in a future edition but right now its only purpose is to generate html mosaics

    It is interesting, but not real ASCII art. This program uses colors and intensity to create the image, rather than choice of ASCII characters. Every character should be the same brightness, like on a DOS screen. You are supposed to make choices among characters themselves to achieve the illusion of brighter and darker pixels. The programmer should look over some old ACII art if necessary, and map specific chars to the pixel brightness he is trying to achieve.

    This is a 4.9MB download which accomplishes the same thing as 0.4beta which is a 0.1MB download and requires no install. I compared the output from both programs side-by-side. Although the files naturally weren't byte-for-byte identical, the results appeared identical to the naked eye. Admittedly, mosascii has a few extra features like the Mosaic Explorer but I find little value in it, plus it seems like the buggiest piece.
