ASCII art is a kind of computer art that uses only the characters in the ASCII set.
ASCII art is a digital art form that uses only the letters of the ASCII alphabet to create a piece of art. It is usually monochrome and can be created with or without a graphics editor.
ASCII art has been around for a long time, but in recent years it has been used less and less in comparison to other types of digital art.
The ASCII character set is a standard, from the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII), originally consisting of 128 characters.
It was introduced in 1963 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Most computer programs use ASCII to represent text in English, and other languages that use Latin letters.
Most people use text editors to create ASCII-based images. However, these days we have many different options to create ASCII images easily and quickly. One of them is using an online tool, like this tool, which allows you to select a background image, or type characters on the canvas, or you can choose what kind of font you want to type with - like old typewriter fonts or pixel fonts, for example - and it will automatically generate the image for you.
Some people also use this technique in order to create logos for their websites or social media profiles since it's much simpler than using Photoshop or Illustrator software.
