      I want to make a block of text colored so that the colored words form a picture.

       

      Similar to this, but with my own text in it:

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      01010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101

      Is there a way to do this in any Adobe program without coloring every single letter by hand?  (I want the text to remain text, not a picture.)

          I’d post in the Photoshop forum. I’m sure there’s a technique to use there.

            I did a little of this in Photoshop with a special script I wrote for the Deco Fill patterns. The script creates an XML file of a sample file or photo, then the deco script is run and it changes the color of the pattern based on the xml file. You can use random pattern that places one particular pattern on one layer, then run it again and change the pattern. Here's a sample using 1s and 0s. It's a bit hard to see the numbers, as I put two images over each other.
