Sound of an Image converts images into music. Open an image, choose which instruments to use, and hit "Play".

Sound of an Image will magically transform into real music the pictures you load into it.

What's New:
MIDI Export
This was by far the top user request: SoundOfAnImage can now export MIDI files. Note that it always exports with the tempo set to 120 beats per minute; you can Change that in whatever scoring/MIDI editing app you're using.
Bug Fixes
I fixed a couple of the most commonly-reported bugs. They were pretty weird and minor so I won't list them here.
Open Source
You can download the source code to SoundOfAnImage here. SoundOfAnImage is written in Objective-C using both Cocoa (AppKit) and Carbon (QuickTime). I wouldn't exactly call this high-quality code; SoundOfAnImage is more of an art project to me than a serious piece of engineering.
