Digital images such as jpg, bmp or gif are made of pixels organized on a grid, in a simplified way each pixel rappresents a color and, like a mosaic, many pixels create the final image. With this simpe concept in mind Neil Fraser came out with the idea of a script to “decode” an image into pure html code and output a quite large table where each cell is 1px by 1px with the background color matching the source image colors.
The results? Interesting.
The use? Geeky entertainment, I guess!
