  1. when I posted the question I would never have imagined that we would get to Java code. as it happens, I'm a Java programmer, so I can read your answer. To me this code seems to transform an image like this any white pixel becomes a space, anything else becomes a $. This would work for black and white images like the original apple logo however, I like using mockofun's ascii filter because it seems to use different brightness levels associated with different characters. I read somewhere that they actually map each brightness level to a specific character according to the character's "coverage" they seem to have really put some thought into the multiple types of ascii art like for ex. using the Newskool characters. having said that, I'd like to thank you all for giving me a very good insight into this and helping me find out more about monospace fonts and ascii art
  2. Well, I thought the video is pretty self explanatory, but I will try to do it in words too: 1. log into https://www.mockofun.com/ 2. Upload the image of the logo and add it to the work area 3. Select the image, go to FILTERS (upper menu) and add the ASCII art filter
  3. hey guys, thanks so much for your help. Yes, using monospace fonts is the solution for me. especially for graphics with different colors. I used the mockofun tool because it's free, and I really love the filters. The ASCII filter is very flexible as it allows me to work directly on the image. I can set how many characters to have on a line. Here's a video on how I do it: batman-ascii-art.mp4 I read a bit about monospace fonts and that was my original problem. monospace fonts have the same width and that's what they use in mockofun. it provides a consistent and proportional design. non monospace fonts have different width and therefore the lines become of different sizes. with monospace: ##### #########. .#########. ####o .####o #### ## # # ## #### ### ###### #####o ###### ### x## ######### ####### ######### ### ## ########### ####### ########### ## ## ###############. ########### ############### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ######### ####### ########### X###### ######### ## ## ##### # .#####o # ##### ## ## #### ### #### ## ### # # # ### #### # #### ##### ##### ###########x o########### without monospace: ##### #########. .#########. ####o .####o #### ## # # ## #### ### ###### #####o ###### ### x## ######### ####### ######### ### ## ########### ####### ########### ## ## ###############. ########### ############### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ##################################################### ## ## ######### ####### ########### X###### ######### ## ## ##### # .#####o # ##### ## ## #### ### #### ## ### # # # ### #### # #### ##### ##### ###########x o###########
  4. hi, I'm working on this ASCII art project and I used mockofun to transform the Apple logo into ASCII art (Newskool setting) Here's what I got: now, the tool's ASCII photo filter allows me to download the result as an image or grab the actual text from the ascii art and I can paste it into affinity, but it's not the same proportions. do I have to use a certain font? how do I do this using the text and not the image. has anybody tried doing ASCII art in affinity? thanks, JJohn
