The text pattern is not limited to only a square grid but can also be arranged in rings and helixes. Text can be in a custom shape placed along vectorized contours or a selection in Photoshop. Text representation can consist of separated symbols and digits and also contain meaningful text.

Built-in blur and fading effects let you make high-quality focus, depth-of-field and other kinds of special effects. Digitalizer II lets you randomize separated symbols and whole connected words.

The samples shown here are based off of a close-up photo of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, with the Gettysburg Address used for the textual content.
