Textorizer

feuilleton.jpg

Textorizer takes a raster image in a format such as png, jpeg or gif, detects edges using a Sobel convolution filter and replaces them with supplied lines of text.

In a similar vein, you can Textorize a picture using a downloadable application. Flickr has a pool of examples.

    Yes, it’s rather a blunt instrument. I’ve not tried the downloadable application yet, I think that has more options.
