Email to image converter – spam beater for website owners


 Email Address to Image Converter. If you really want to protect your email address from spam harvesters on your web site, you may need to use this handy little tool which converts the text into a non-clickable and non machine readable image. Of course it means that your readers can’t click on it to email you too, but that’s may be the price you have to pay for peace of mind, eh?

 According to this report (March, 2003), one of the fastest ways to get your email address included in bulk email lists is to post it on your public website. But what if you really need to post your email address, so that people can contact you for legitimate purposes? The solution is to use a human-readable format that is opaque to the “robots” that scour the internet, harvesting addresses. An image is one such format.* The form below will create a PNG image file from your email address that can be safely placed on your website. The form will not save your email address anywhere on our system.

  • Another handy spam-defeating tool is Automatic’s enkoder form. It transmogrifies your e-mail address into unreadable javascript, but still functions the exact same as a mailto link.
