Re: Post your nice ASCII pics!

Here, try this one in a console (for those of you with webcams)

mplayer tv:// -vo aa -monitorpixelaspect 0.5

Re: Post your nice ASCII pics!

That's pretty cool! smile

Replace aa with caca if you want color, though (and assuming you have libcaca installed), and the -monitorpixelaspect option becomes optional. tongue

That's pretty awesome! I will use it as desktop-background!

edit: can you post your tiv-code for this? How did you generate this picture, with a non-ASCII-background?

By "tiv-code", do you mean the command-line parameters? They should be

tiv -r 0.6 -a -j -c --reset <path to image>

If you meant the source code, you can find it on the project page that I linked above.

I have a transparent terminal so what you see in the background is the desktop background. I ended up uploading some more images after that post.  You can find them here.

Re: Post your nice ASCII pics!

Just a note, I know jp2a is listed as a n optional dependency of tiv for ascii output, but it might be worth catching its absence early on and printing an error message if it -j is specified on the cmd line. Otherwise you get a load of errors (one per line I think). I only got this because I had forgotten to add jp2a to a new machine, so it wasn't an issue for me. Just thought it worth a mention. smile

Thank you, that's exactly what I meant. Apology for my confusing english, it isn't my native language. It would be nice if you can upload your orginal "cat-picture" and your background-picture for me. I want to generate an image with the right resolution for me.

Re: Post your nice ASCII pics!

@harald91
You can find the source images here.

Steps to reproduce:
1) set background with e.g. feh
2) use "tiv -ajc --reset <cat image>" in a transparent terminal
3) capture the screen (e.g. with gimp)

To tweak the image, open it as a layer in gimp, then capture the screen with only the background showing. Import the captured background image as a background layer in gimp. Make sure transparency is enabled and then you can erase ascii artefacts from the top layer.
