Reza Salehi,

This class takes a Jpeg or Gif image and converts it to HTML tags.
The generated HTML is accessible via a public field and also can be saved in a HTML file
or gets printed directly.

How to Use this class
Please take a look at the attached client.php file.

First, an instance of this class should be created by passing the following parameters to 
the constructor:
	- uploadedFilePath: The path to the uploaded image.
	- result file path: The path to the generated HTML file.
	- The character to use in the HTML image as a pixel.
	- Maximum width of the input image.
	- Maximum height of the imput image.

Please take a look at the following code:

// Creates an instance of the converter class
$Image2TextInstance = new Image2Html($uploadedFilePath, $uploadedFilePath . ".html", "█", 400, 300);

After creating the instance, you have to call the GetHtmlFromImage() function 
to generate the HTML as follows:
// Does the actual conversion

At last you have to save the file on disk by calling WriteToFile():
// Write the converted file to an HTML file as well as printing it directly!


Print the HTML directly link the following:
<?php print($Image2TextInstance->_textData); ?>

IMPORTANT: Please make sure you create [conversions] folder on the same path you are running this script.
