"Is it possible to save an image as a text file and then reproduce the image from the RGB values (reading in the order from left to right and top to bottom) using an image reader?
I am thinking of producing a camera that saves text files instead of jpgs. The images will then be reproduced by using a converter."

This is the email i got from someone called John Aidiniantz from AMW SECURITY,LONDON.
And this inspired me to make this program.

The function 'image2text' enciphers or encodes an image into a text file.

The original image can then be retrieved back from this text file by using the function 'text2image'.

Screenshot explains the complete procedure.
