DeIMG, images to tables
Satirical software and news company The Daily Grind today unveiled DeIMG, a re-branding of its software That's Not A Picture, which is designed to turn images into table data, for, as the author puts it, "browsers which support tables but not images". The largely pointless and futile app converts PNG, JPG. GIF, and PDF files into HTML, XHTML, or XHTML+CSS. Usage of the application is largely in question, as the developer proudly displays users' qualms and frustration on the product's webpage.
Users can determine cell size to optimize the Table's resolution, while the Generate Header button creates a standalone HTML page.
"This program sets new standards..." says a user. "The author should be commended and then beaten. I recommend That's Not a Picture wholeheartedly. To whom however, I have no idea."
