Ascii Generator 2 (Ascgen2) is an advanced and open-source Windows application to convert images into high quality ASCII art – text that accurately represents the original image.

It is the first and only program of its kind to support output for display in variable width fonts, with real-time output adjustment and much more.

Based on the original Ascii Generator, this new program has been completely rewritten in the .Net framework with an emphasis on speed and quality of the output. All of the source code is available on SourceForge.
