Textaizer Pro v188.8.131.52 | 4 MB
Textaizer Pro 4.3 has a couple of new exciting features: export as pdf (including the font!), and most importantly: export in seamlessly fitting multiple parts, to allow for giant-sized text mosaic result. Finally there is no limit any more to text mosaic size. Another new feature is to provide an URL (web-address) and the application will use the text content of that page to build the text mosaic.
What is Textaizer Pro?
Textaizer Pro is a text mosaic creator with extensive possibilities to also create genuine ASCII art.
What can you do with Textaizer Pro?
You can turn any picture into little pieces of art by re-painting its bitmap from a text. Simply choose a text file and the target picture and press the button. Hide your text in a picture and send it to your loved one as a 'secret' message. Or simply create and print balloons from 'happy birthday' words.
Is Textaizer Pro a unique program?
Yes. Many ASCII art applications can be found on the internet and also some text mosiac creators. Textaizer Pro is however one of the few programs that combines these two possibilities and above all it's freeware. And that makes Textaizer Pro unique.
The key features of Textaizer Pro
A text mosaic is a picture which is built from hundreds or thousands of characters. Each character takes the color of the area that is replaced by this character, and when looking from a distance the original source picture is recognised. If looking close-up, the individual characters can be seen.
When sentences are taken a source text, this story is then printed as a picture ('every picture tells a story'). With Textaizer Pro you can make such text mosaic pictures.
But Textaizer Pro can do much more that just that. The key features are:
create text mosaics (limits: perhaps, we have built a 4000x5000 pixels poster of 59 Mb)
extensive pre- and post-processing with color correction filters, size, font and background
create bitmaps from text (aka ASCII art)
IntelliDraw: create ASCII art directly from drawn lines
free drawing ASCII art, with eraser functionality
create video with ASCII art from video clips
large viewing window with seamless zoom
a wide variety of output: text, html, bitmap, avi
HTML file generation in two modes: color or black & white
Shakira, painted with the lyrics of "Ciega, Sordomuda"
First, the text of the lyrics was prepared by copying the text in an ascii text file. We used Notepad to edit the text. Since the lyrics consisted of short pieces of text, we removed all end-of-lines and created only two long sentences (make sure the 'word wrap'
is unchecked to correctly count the number of sentences).
In Textaizer Pro we loaded both picture and text files and created the text mosaic with the default settings. The result was post processed in Adobe Photoshop where the levels were modified (darker & higher contrast).
