People are sharing screenshots in word documents.
Therefore I share pictures as excel shit.

History

I was complaining on IRC about someone sending me a screenshot as a word file.
Then my friend Aaron Lav had a comment that I turned into that project:

much rarer to encode screenshots in excel with a cell per pixel

Even more history

It turns out that someone had that idea already: http://think-maths.co.uk/spreadsheet (thanks sphereinabox)

And someone else too: https://github.com/milkey-mouse/excelify (thanks Milkey mouse)

Usage

It probably works with any python.

To install dependencies, run:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

To convert a picture, run:

python conv <filename>.jpg <filename>.xlsx

Careful, the output files look small, but they may take a while to open.
