TxtNinja Stashes Your Text Inside Images

Have something you want other people to read but not spam bots and search-engine crawlers? TxtNinja will turn your plain text into an image to keep the bots at bay.

The result is an image file which is human friendly but not machine readable.

TxtNinja allows you to change the font, font size, colour, background and supports international character sets for a dozen non-English languages.
