DeIMG turns images into HTML tables

updated 12:40 pm EST, Thu February 21, 2008

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."


An image, turned into a high-resolution table

    Brilliant!

    Finally someone filled my need. My target demographic consists almost entirely of people with image-incapable browsers. We used to have to use 1000 words to describe each image, but now we can show them the real thing!

    Love it so much that I downloaded and installed 5 copies.

    hilarious

    And it's not even April yet.

    But, people all over are taking this seriously. Doofuses.

    The real name of the app:

    It should be called DeBroadband

    Actually, it's hard for me to tell whether it's that the download is taking forever, or that the browser is having a bear of a time rendering the freaking massive table.

    As less than worthless hacks go, it's genius! I bet it was massively fun to build... but it's kinda sad that a developer has that much free time on his hands.

    it's the table

    I tried to view their demo and gave up, it totally hosed my browser! I really wanted to open the source code and gaze in awe at that supermassive freakin' table. Maybe some other time when I have absolutely nothing else to do, I'll let it load the page overnight.

    holy compression, batman!

    The DeIMG site example images are 5.8 MB and 36 kb. Those of you having a problem viewing the tables version need look little further than the 5.8 MB (that's not a typo) for the text-only HTML file! The png weighs in at 0.5% the size of the table-based image.

    well...

    i can'tt figure out how to HTML Code to post here - those last 3 posts actually contain a portion of the code from the page_

    A b**** to open the file in the first place - even with a Dual Processor and 4GB of RAM_

    I managed to get it to open in Code View - but trying to have it show up in Layout Mode would have taken too much time_
