ImageGlitch is a way to digitally destroy images to create new works of art from your photographs or graphic designs created on the computer.

Note: For best results, use JPEG or TIFF. Other file formats are hard to work with or may completely corrupt the image. Be sure to always make backups of your images with any app that makes changes to your photos.

How to use:

It's easy, just start removing some lines from the textfield on the left. You can add lines from external sources, remove lines, change lines, but read below for a few tips.

- Command + Z (undo) is your friend. You will often see your entire image disappear, just Command + Z back to where you were.

- The first 50 lines (give or take) are usually full of meta information, so editing these lines will usually result in no or little change to the image.

- The text correlates to the image, towards the top you will change the top part of the image. If you change text towards the bottom, you will affect the bottom part of the image.

So all it does is takes out chunks of your pictures in forms of lines. Of course, I thought perhaps I'm not doing it correctly, of course I accessed their help section and…big surprise…a box appears and says "Help isn't available for ImageGlitch" You just got a hard-earned dollar of mine. Spend it wisely.

I hate to give one star

I am on El Capitan and it seems that this program doens’t work too well with it? Photo won’t show up in the preview, and when it does and I make changes in the middle of the document, the photo viewfinder goes blank again. I dunno. Maybe I just don’t understad how to use it.

Doesn’t work in 10.10

This software doesn’t really work anymore, in 10.10 Apple changed the image rendering engine so most glitched images appear blank. I would have reported this to the developer instead of leaving a review, but it appears their help website has been taken down and no information is avaialble about this software on the site at all.
