      I started on it too, took me 45 seconds to download and install Python Imaging Library, but didn’t get much further than:

      sys.path.append (“C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\PIL”)
      import Image
      lena = Image.open(“lena.jpg”)

      This worked, but import _imaging doesn’t play nice (plan was lena.resize() call, for four more lines of code). Sadface.

    I started late on Sunday, but didn’t get time to finish my bloated solution. But I finally finished yesterday and uploaded tonight: https://github.com/rjacquier/ImageToTextArt
