Image to ASCII art

For this we will use

$jp2a

Jp2a is a program to change any picture that you want, to ASCII art, and it generates HTML codes as well.

To install jp2a in linux, run the following command in your terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install jp2a

Now to change the picture to ASCII, just enter the directory of the picture, and run this command:

$ jp2a picture.jpg

and if your picture is in .PNG, you have to convert it to .JPG first to change to ASCII. to convert run this command:

$ convert Picture.PNG Converted-Pictrue.JPG

Now just have fun!
