ASCII Art is a free website to convert Instagram photos into ASCII art. As we all know ASCII art is a graphic design technique where characters and symbols are used to create a visual picture. That is what this website is also doing for you, it will convert any photo from your Instagram account in to ASCII art. Photos can be converted one at a time in colored mode or greyscale mode.
Below you can see a screenshot of the home page of this website.
Let’s see how to convert Instagram photos into ASCII Art:
- When you open this website, you will notice a text box. In this text box you have to paste the URL of the Instagram photo that you want to convert. The URL can be of a photo from your own Instagram account, from a friends account, or from any account.
- After pasting the URL, select if you want the photo to be colored or in greyscale from the two options given below the URL text box.
- After this click on the button labelled “Magic”.
- As soon as you click the magic button your Instagram photo will be converted to ASCII art. An example of the colored conversion can be seen in the screenshot above.
You can also share this Instagram ASCII art website with your friends using Facebook, Twitter or Reddit. You can easily post these converted photos on your Instagram account.
Also, check out free ASCII art extensions for Chrome.
The website does what it says, but the photo conversion quality is of issue. The conversion of the photos in colored mode is good, but the greyscale mode ones are not that impressive. The greyscale conversions just show you a outline of the photo and nothing apart from that is visible.
