  1. Choose a picture
  2. Set the colors

1.)  Choose a picture

Here you can select the picture which you want to convert. If you want to resize the output ASCII art then you can change the size values.

Click 'NEXT'

2.) Set colors (takes some time to analyze the picture)

On the left table you can see the different colors of the pictures and the conversion characters. The program has tried automatic to find the best character. Nevertheless you will normally change the table. There are 2 possibilities: 1.) You choose a character from the left ASCII table (double click). 2.) Use the keyboard.

Click 'NEXT'

3.) Output and save (takes some time to convert)

The ASCII picture is displayed in a grid. On the left side you can change the save options if need is. If you like the result, you can save it. Otherwise you can go back to step 2.

Click 'NEXT'

Here you can see the ASCII art in a normal text editor. If you haven't saved the picture in step 3, then you can do it here (without save options).
