This is an MCEdit filter to render PNG pictures as pixel art in the Minecraft world.

The base code is @Sethbling's Player Statue filter, which relies on this png.py library from MIT:
http://pypng.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/code/png.py

The filter takes two string parameters:

host is the DNS name or IP address and port, seperated by colon. For example: "upload.wikimedia.org:80"

path is the rest of the url to the PNG file. For example "/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b9/Mona_Lisa.PNG/160px-Mona_Lisa.PNG"

Version 2 of the filter, takes a checkbox parameter. If 'Horizontal' is checked, then the picture will render along the x,z surface (like a floor). If the checkbox is not checked, the picture will draw vertically, like a wall.

Check your port value then? What are your inputs? The picture was absolutely no help in diagnosing your problem, by the way. Not sure what you were expecting as an answer...
Really i have no idea how to upload one?? please can you make a video where you show it?

Use PNGtoCUBE filter instead. It's much easier if you have the pictures on your computer already.
can you just use a pic from your pc not the internet?

Go to my website, and get the PNGtoCube filter. It loads from your local file system and has some other features.
whats your website

How doesn't it work? All I know of is the bloke who tried signs.

Drape has been popular and I don't know where it's apparently broken without specific feedback.
mmm I found a little while ago that it simple refused to work when I used it, hang on a bit and I can try again and see what it says that the problem is.

You don't do that. Download MCEdit from www.mcedit.net , extract it, then follow this tutorial:

Okay thank you.
So i just paste the file in the filter folder?

It is an MCEdit filter. Take a look at @tomutwit's guide to installing MCEdit filters:

Google images if you like.

Otherwise the current version defaults to imgur, so you can easily host and load from there using the direct image link.

Not quite... this was my idea, but I used Sethbling's block / colour mapping routine from the Player Statue filter. I did ask for permission after the fact, and he was fine with it.
