What’s so special about this picture anyways?
It is not an image in the normal sense, it was instead painstakingly created using CSS. CSS (cascade style sheets) is a language to define a website visual representation, but it is not intended to create images. Bush was created by placing hundreds of characters (numbers/letters/symbols) of different sizes and colors in specific positions on the page. Too easily see this, click somewhere in the middle of his face and slowly drag your mouse outward. You should see your mouse highlight some of the text!
Since this is an unusual and rather avant-garde method for displaying images, there are no tools and the process is hard, slow and complex to make it work well in different browsers.
