The ASCII-Image_Factory converts images into ascii characters. The Plugin is integrated into the TinyMCE Editor and writes a shortcode to your article, where the image should be displayed. The images are analyzed on the server, where the pixels are clustered and displayed as ascii characters on the client. The user is able to display the original and the ascii image together or to show just the ascii-image. Furthermore the user can convert the image into gray shades.
