    You know how you can make a picture using a typewriter. I forget the term for that kind of image, so I will refer to it as a "text" image until told the correct name.

    Well, are there any programs, preferably freeware if possible, that will CONVERT an image from a jpg. or gif. to this "text" type image.

    Just wondering.

    Thanks

    There was a post here at TSG long ago of a web site that you could do that.
    It let you do it online. You upload the image and say how big you wanted it to be.
    You could make it as big as you wanted to and it would tell you your need 1000's pages to print it out if you made it super big. Then you would download a .pdf file of the whole thing.

    Thanks for all the replies to this post. My original idea wat to just make up a little logo to go along with my posts on another "text only" forum. However.... after playing around with some of these programs... I found that the output needed for a decent image was huge.... so it just wasn't practical for me to do.

    Thanks for the replies.
