NAME

       img2txt - convert images to various text-based coloured files

SYNOPSIS

       img2txt [ -W width ] [ -H height ] [ -x font-width ] [ -y font-height ]
               [ -b brightness ] [ -c contrast ] [ -g gamma ]
               [ -d dither ] [ -f format ] FILE

DESCRIPTION

       img2txt converts images to colour ASCII characters and outputs them to text-based coloured
       files.

       img2txt can load the most widespread image formats: PNG, JPEG,  GIF,  PNG,  BMP  etc  (see
       NOTES  for details).  By default the output text is 60 columns wide, and the line count is
       computed accordingly to respect aspect ratio of original file.  The default output  format
       is standard ANSI coloured text.

OPTIONS

       -W, --width=<width>
              Change output column count. If not given, the default is set to 60.

       -H, --height=<height>
              Change  output  line  count.  If not given, the height is computed to match correct
              aspect ratio.

       -x, --font-width=<width>
              Change output font width. If not given, the default is set to 6. This value will be
              used for computing aspect ratio.

       -y, --font-height=<height>
              Change  output font height. If not given, the default is set to 10. This value will
              be used for computing aspect ratio.

       -b, --brightness=<brightness>
              Change image brightness. Default to 1.0.

       -c, --contrast=<contrast>
              Change image contrast. Default to 1.0.

       -g, --gamma=<gamma>
              Change image gamma. Default to 1.0.

       -d, --dither=<dither>
              Change dithering algorithm. This can be one of the following (default to fstein) :
                none     : Nearest color
                ordered2 : Ordered 2x2
                ordered4 : Ordered 4x4
                ordered8 : Ordered 8x8
                random   : Random
                fstein   : Floyd Steinberg

       -f, --format=<format>
              Change output format. This can be one of the following (default to ansi) :
                ansi   : coloured ANSI
                caca   : internal libcaca format
                utf8   : UTF8 with CR
                utf8cr : UTF8 with CRLF (MS Windows)
                html   : HTML with CSS and DIV support
                html3  : Pure HTML3 with tables
                irc    : IRC with ctrl-k codes
                bbfr   : BBCode (French)
                ps     : Postscript
                svg    : Scalable Vector Graphics
                tga    : Targa Image

       -h, --help
              Display help message and exit.

       -v, --version
              Display version of the program and exit.

EXAMPLES

       img2txt hello.jpg > hello.ans

       img2txt --width=40 --format=svg hello.jpg > tinyhello.svg

NOTES

       Setting both column and line count (using --width and --height) will let  you  choose  the
       exact output size without taking aspect ratio in account.

       You  must compile libcaca package with support of Imlib2 to be able to load a wide variety
       of image formats. Otherwise you will only  be able to load regular BMP files.
