Basic example:

$ file foo.png
foo.png: PNG image data, 618 x 257, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
$ bin2fasta -o bar.fasta foo.png
319400it [00:00, 683649.99it/s]
$ head -c50 bar.fasta

$ bin2fasta --decode -o baz.png bar.fasta
159700it [00:00, 455825.67it/s]
$ file baz.png
baz.png: PNG image data, 618 x 257, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
$ diff foo.png baz.png
$

Note that you can easily chain multiple commands by piping their respective outputs and using -:

$ cat foo.png | xz | gpg -c | bin2fasta - > bar.fasta
$ cat bar.fasta | bin2fasta -D - | gpg -d | xz --decompress > baz.png
$ diff foo.png baz.png
