Or print to a PDF and then export that to a JPEG, or use the PrintToJPG "printer" driver, or ...

There's numerous ways to achieve it, but none are really the point of the application itself, which is to make an ASCII image.

I still have to figure out how to convert the end file to a jpeg or something

It outputs to text, not a graphic format. My guess to what you could do (to get a graphic from the result) would be to take a screenshot of the text output. Or print to paper and scan it back in using a scanner.
