Oh hey that's mine; I don't mind so long as you share pics of it. That's actually an older iteration, too; the final piece is bluer. I'm showcasing it and another at a small exhibition starting next week; will post updates then.

Yeah I'm still around; that's pretty schway. I really like the first one tbh; how did you do it if I may ask?


it's all just cheap tricks, basically :P

took the smoothed out version, added a layer mask, used a radial white-to-black gradient, stuck a black layer underneath, flattened everything, and switched image modes to the fauux three-colour pallette with positioned dithering. the other one's the same thing, but with 8-colours and no dither

actually, for the first one, i think i used a "lighter dark" (#262626) when switching and then swapped it back to rgb and made it pure black from there, because it had better contrast that way.

anyways, here's one more (using term colours with transparent black) and a self-portrait thing

I couldn't attend because of class; missed the jury that announced the top three best of show; I apparently got second place and $250 as a result. Dropped by right before closing to take a couple pics; it was a student-curated exhibition so there wasn't much to see. I'm thinking about making a lightbox to frame future prints so people can better see the nuance of the glitch; didn't have time to frame em properly but w/e.

I've posted this maybe once or twice elsewhere. Did this nearly two years ago. It's the only databending I've done other than mess around with a few Space Engine screenshots. I've always been quite interested and will probably make more at some point. It's mostly basic effects in Audacity. I believe 11 edited frames + 1 regular frame to help keep the original image intact. Pretty fun to do, I encourage you all to make short animation loops.

first attempt at databending (audacity)

echo + amplify + fade in


Some photos I took and played with in audacity and the GIMP.

Slowly learning to do it better.

Can you elaborate how you did this? That looks pretty interesting.


It's more of a traditional edit than databending.
I basically just took 3 copes of the main image, shifted them towards red green and blue and rotated them different directions.

I also played around with layer effects and the "erase every other row" filter/script to get the scanline effect.

I also used a lens-distortion filter to get the curved-screen effect.

Sometimes, overboard is cool.

Could'nt you do a script in the GIMP (not sure about audacity scripting but, gotta be some way to do it too), and then just, run it on all the frames of a video?

I might need to try this now.

tried your technique. turned out ok but not as gritty as yours which is a shame.


File: 1469869696414.png (2.23 MB, 150x200, output.jpg)

Hex editor method produces a limited amount of effects, mostly related to JPG internal structure. I would recommend trying audacity method next time. You open an image in GIMP/Photoshop and export it to .RAW file (RAW file is just a stream of bytes without headers). Then you open this .RAW file in Audacity and apply various audio effects to it. Cutting and pasting pieces around slices the image, adding reverb smears it. After that you save changes and open back in image editor. There is a ton of effects to try - flanger, filter, amplify, reversing.

There are two modes of saving a .RAW file - by pixels and by channels. Saving by pixels saves values of red/green/blue of a pixel next to each other:
P1(red), P1(green), P1(blue); P2(red), P2(green), P2(blue);

Saving by channels saves pixel values separetely for each channel:
P1(red), P2(red), ... P1544(red); P1(green) P2(green), ... P1544(green); P1(blue) P2(blue), ... P1544(blue)

It's a thing to keep in mind when using Audacity method. For example, if your .RAW is saved by channels, cutting and pasting some parts around misaligns channel values, producing colour "ghosting" and shifting.

To glitch images above, I wrote a script that reads .RAW file byte-by-byte and changes each value according to some rule and writes it to a new file. Pic related had rules to square each byte (byte is number from 0 to 255) if both its value and order in file is even, otherwise just add 127. The resulting picture was then colour-inverted in editor. Since .RAW is just a stream of bytes, it is easy to write a program to do anything, experimenting with parameters.

There are also algorithms that produce glitch-like look. Algorithm used on blue flower in the OP is called pixelsort. There are also dithering algorithms. Another interesting trick with .RAW is opening file with different resolution after you change it in audacity. It warps the image pretty hard, producing more abstract image.

Hope this helps.


Thanks for the fast and answer lainon. I have actually tried the audacity method before but now after using it again I'm definitely seeing good results.

To extrapolate, I was trying to emulate Giacomo Carmagnola's work; he's one of the few glitch artists that are actually getting to chance to hold exhibitions and whatnot. His style kinda gives me further incentive to experiment with a mix of glitch art and photojournalism.

Can't glitch the upper part of image without fucking up the TIFF header.


File: 1471198061880-0.png (418.58 KB, 200x150, test3.png)

And here's wahwah'd one, if anyone cares.


the headers are not a problem, you just need to aproach them differently.

why don't you stick a big margine at the top in the gimp before you export as .tif? Then crop it after doing the audacity fun-ness.

Otherwise, you don't have to export the image as a .tif from audacity. The tif image you're using is basically a raw file, anyway. it has a header, but that header is not strictly needed for opening the file. if you save the image as raw (the gimp likes .data extensions for this), you'll be able to open the tif even with a borked or absent header. It will make a slightly different effect, of course, but you can get the whole image modified and not worry about leaving margins of un-changed image.

dear me these are cool

I need to do more with pixelsort effects


I've generally had more more success with .bmp in audacity than .tiff; you have more leeway with how much of the original image is left that way instead of having thick lines of unbroken data.
>I need to do more with pixelsort effects
There are lots of streamlined methods of doing it; lots of people end up just using processing tho. Kim Asendorf's code is typically the go-to for starters: http://kimasendorf.tumblr.com/post/32936480093/processing-source-code

File: 1471312054351-1.png (12.92 MB, 200x150, nicer.jpg)

well, just to explain a bit more of what I (5360) was saying:

the one with the bicycle sign is made using .tif files. I ignored the header when I was in audacity, and then just imported the ting as a raw file in the gimp.

The car image I did the same with, only major difference being that it was a .bmp originally then reopened as raw in the gimp.

I have done it like in >5358, with margins, but this way you simply don't need those margins, and I find it much nicer for both formats to just ignore those things.

(by the way, you can alawys export from audacity with headers on raw files, and those can sometimes make neat effects, too).

Also, thanks for the pixelsortfunstuff. I'll work on that, when I get back from my walk.

This is a draft version of some album art I've been working on.
The images it's comprised of aren't mine originally - they were made by someone on IRC.


In the past I've simply removed the header temporarily while I work on the rest of the file as raw data. Then when I'm done put the header back.
This seems to work fine so long as you dont change the size of the image.
