Tim - Image to Text Converter

The program converts an image (jpg or bmp) to a text, which looks like the image in grayscale. You can choose any monospaced font and any font size you want to format the text with, and also any set of allowed characters. The result can be saved as text and then you can format it correctly in a text editor, or you can save the image of the text already correctly formatted.

The program was written in C++Builder 2006 and might need some dll's and bpl's to run. They might be available for download here: http://etonne.110mb.com/files/libs.zip
Put them in the program directory, or in your system directory.




Download the program:

Nice!  Would you mind explaining the algorithm used to determine the density of the characters?  That is if it is not proprietary. embarassed

I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.

Well it looks cool, but I can't get it to work.  I've tried many photos and settings but I always get what looks like random text.  Do you know what I might be doing wrong?

Hmm, try to change color mapping so that the line is more steep, it improves contrast. Look at the histograms to decide where the line should lie. You could also play with the color sliders but even I do not understand fully how they affect the resulting image smiley
If you still think something does not work like it should, you can send me this image, or post it here, and I'll try to do something with it.

Hello. Did you download the libraries I give link to in the first post? Put them in the program's directory or in windows\system or however it is called on vista.

Hi,

I am looking for the reverse one - from text to image converter.
When I look the email source that has image - it shows as in text format in source view.
I can edit that text and want to convert that edited text to image format - just want to edit the original image .
Is there any program exists ?

Thanks.
