Newspaper Photo Generator

( <-- Back to Image Processing )

This image processing utility will generate a newspaper-style dot rendition of your digital photograph. You may select a bicolor or multicolor result. Simply specify an image file to upload (in JPEG format), set the desired brightness, contrast, and color range, then click on the "generate bicolor image" button or the "generate multicolor image" button. The bicolor result will be a dot matrix image with pixels drawn in either the dark color or the light color. The multicolor result will be a dot matrix image composed of pixels drawn in various combinations of the red, green, and blue components of the light and dark colors. Note that for efficiency reasons, the resulting image will be output in PNG format.

These are the RGB values of the "light" and "dark" colors. Normally the "light" color would be white, and the "dark" color would be black, however you may choose different values. (For example, to simulate old, faded newspaper photos, you may wish to choose light yellowish gray as the light color, and dark yellowish gray as the dark color.) Each entry's value may range from 0 to 255.

"Light" color: R:   G:   B:
