Text Mosaic
The Text Mosaic effect allows you to create a text mosaic. A text mosaic is a picture that has been divided into rectangular sections, each of which is replaced with a text character of appropriate average color. When viewed at low magnifications, the individual pixels appear as the primary image, while close examination reveals that the image is in fact made up of text.
1. Do one of the following:
 Choose Effects > Mosaic > Text Mosaic
