What Is a Text to Pixel Art Converter?

This tool converts textual data into pixel art. It assigns each character in the input text a corresponding color and displays the text as a pixelated image. Pixel art is a form of digital art where images are created using individual pixels. Pixel art is often used in video games and other media for its retro style. This tool allows for the conversion of simple textual data into pixelated images based on specified rules and parameters. The process of converting characters to colors involves associating each character in the input text with a specific color. You can define these rules in a multiline text field within the options. To assign a color, use the format "character=color", for example, "b=black" or "1=#ffffff" or "*=rgba(255, 0, 0, 1)". If a character in the input text does not have an assigned color, it will be displayed using the default color specified in the options (by default, this is white). Input data for pixel art typically follows a multiline format where each line of text corresponds to a horizontal line of pixels in the image. In such cases, the program automatically calculates the width of the image based on the longest line of data. Alternatively, you can manually specify the width of the image, and the program will either truncate input data (if there is too much) or pad it with the default color (if there is not enough). Alternatively, the input data may not use a multiline format and consist of continuous single-line textual characters. In this case, you must specify the image width so that the program divides the data into chunks of equal length. The minimum image size is when one text character corresponds to one (actual) pixel in the image. However, drawing pixel art in this mode can be challenging. Therefore, you can set the pixel size in the options to zoom the image. For example, a pixel size of 2 means that one character corresponds to a 2x2 pixel square, and a pixel size of 10 means that one character corresponds to a 10x10 pixel square. For simple pixel drawing, you can enable a grid of lines. You can customize its color to easily understand where each pixel is located. Additionally, you can add padding around the image, which will use the default color and width specified in the options. Image-abulous!

Create a Pixel Art of a Duck

In this example, we generate pixel art of a duck using a set of characters and color usage rules. We input multiline data consisting of digits from "0" to "9", as well as the letter "a." In the options, we assign each of these characters an individual color, namely, "0=#c8edff" (LightBlue), "1=#000000" (black), "2=#ffffff" (white), and so on. The program draws the characters in their corresponding colors, creating an image of a cute yellow duck.

Pixel Art for a Game Character

In this example, we create pixel art of our favorite character, Link, from the video game franchise The Legend of Zelda. To do this, we use multiline text data consisting of 30 different characters, including lowercase letters from a to z and four uppercase letters ABCD. The width of the image is determined automatically, based on the number of characters per line (which is 32 symbols). Each of these characters corresponds to an 8x8 pixel square in the image, thus making the width of the Link image 256 pixels.

Draw a Super Mario Sprite

In this example, we draw a sprite of Super Mario from a continuous sequence of characters. To achieve this, we use intuitively simple rules, denoting the color of each pixel by the first letter of its name, w for white, b for black, r for red, n for navajoWhite, s for steelBlue, and c for chocolate. To clearly see how many pixels of each color are to be used in the sequence, we employ a grid mode with semi-transparent black lines. Additionally, since the data has a continuous format, we specify a fixed image width of 19 characters per line.

ASCII Art to Pixel Art

In this example, we convert ASCII art to pixel art. ASCII art is a technique in which characters from the ASCII character set are used to create images. We input a heart designed in ASCII art style and transform it into a colorful PNG image. We define rules for replacing ASCII characters with colored pixels in the options, set the pixel size to 12, and add white padding around all sides of the heart image.

Simple Rainbow Pixel Image

This example creates a simple rainbow image from seven text characters. It generates only one line of pixels composed of seven colors representing the hues of the rainbow. Since the image is quite small, it significantly zooms in using a pixel size of 40.

Generate Empty Grid

This example creates an empty grid, convenient for pixel drawing. The grid has 16 cells horizontally and 16 cells vertically. Each cell corresponds to the character "×", which by default has no assigned color and is displayed with a default transparent background. Additionally, in the options, two rules are specified: "0=black" and "1=red". This means that if you replace certain "×" characters in the input with "0" or "1", you will obtain a pattern composed of black and red pixels in the output.

×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ×××××××××××××××× ××××××××××××××××
