Something that is more fun than anything else is a function to convert images to html. I cannot think of any other reason but to post it on some forums or websites as entertainment. It is definitely looking nicely and the program that I'm going to introduce right now has a lot of additional options that affect the html output.
Image 2 HTML is a software that can process any number of images and convert them directly into HTML files that can be posted on websites. The quality of the output is excellent, you can take a look at a small sample gallery here. The image is converted into a fully colored HTML file using chars defined by the user. This would probably make an excellent surprise for the misses if you convert an image showing the both of you with the chars Iloveyou or something similar.
Back to the tool. The background color, width, char size and char-set can be defined as well as some additional effects like mirroring the image or inverting it.
The settings invite to play with them to create different looking images. If you can come up with another use of an image 2 html converter let me know please. Maybe to prevent images from being blocked by a firewall or network restrictions.
Update: Image To HTML has been discontinued. Neither the website nor the software are available anymore on the Internet. Interested users can try an alternative service like Neil Fraser's Image to HTML Converter to convert a web image into HTML.
Web image in this regard means that the image needs to be available on the Internet, as it is only possible to convert Internet images into HTML. The service has no uploading facilities to upload images from the computer to convert them to HTML. Use a free image host first if you need to convert a local image to HTML.
