Interface Commands
To load a picture for interpretation, choose the File->Open menu or File->New then drag a picture file onto the window. The Characters Library is a string of characters that JPEGtoASCII will use to represent your picture. If you want "black and white" then you simply add a clearly visable character like '$' followed by a space (white). The darker cells in the picture will be represented by characters from the left hand side of the library, and vica vera. The refresh rate is the number of iterations the processing thread should execute before refreshing the user interface. In other words, a high refresh rate will get the job done faster. However, a very high refresh rate will offer little to no feedback during the process. Saved Resolution Sets are a quick way to jump between resolutions. If you want more detail, choose a lower cell size. The first value corresponds to the width, the second to the height of each cell. Be warned that if your picture is not evenly divisable into cells, the lower and right-most few pixels will not be represented. This is usualy not a problem, however. I added the Text Smoothing option may be benificial on the windows version, but other than that serves no real purpose beyond looking pretty. Slows things down quite a bit though. Should you experience an error such that a window becomes unreachable/unusable, delete the preferences file.
