Convert arbitrary images into huge, browser-crashing CSS box-shadow settings.

Example (your browser will likely not be happy with your decision to visit this link).

  • Edit img2css.js, change "img.src = 'mona.jpg'" to point to some (local) image resource you would like to make much more unwieldy
  • Point a recent version of Firefox at example.html. The initial rendering seems to only work in Firefox, but the generated CSS "works" broadly among modern browsers
