README.md

This is a powershell script that can take any image and render it to the PowerShell commandline, pixel by pixel. Most command lines are 120 columns by default so you want a picture that's smaller than that.

Use the DrawPicture.ps1 file by typing:

.\DrawPicture.ps1 .\picture.png

or

.\DrawPicture.ps1 -path C:\full\path\picture.png

You can also render any image from the web with the DrawPicture-FromWeb.ps1 like so:

.\DrawPicture-FromWeb.ps1 https://addons.thunderbird.net/user-media/addon_icons/347/347802-64.png?modified=1322749240

Enjoy.

Here's a demo of it in action:
