Picture to Text (Update to Icon to Text)

This code is an update to the Icon to Text converter submitted by Ben Jones. I have posted this with his permission. Please visit his website at:

If you like it, please vote. Anyway, This update adds the following abilities:

Requires RichTextbox control for rtf previewing, Windows common controls 6.0 for progressbar.

Produces RTF text picture with color legend. My girlfriend uses this for cross-stitch patterns.

However, Color is limited to 223 colors(character set 33-255) However, I've had great success in converting jpgs to 256 color bitmaps prior to converting to text.

Basically, I have changed Ben's conversion logic to an array of colors with indexes equal to ascii character codes.
