Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

Hello everyone.
I just love bug stuff and glitch things and from some days I'm interesting about Glitch Art - if
we can call it that way - basically it is to open a .jpg file or any digital image, using the Windows Notepad, we just see a very long "programming string" with a lot of strange stuff inside xD
it's just impossible ricognize something about the origianl image, is just a code that we can modify (cutting some parts o duplicate some other parts??) for try to create some image distortion, filters, zooming...

there is some free seite u can use to create a easy glitch file from a random image, but i'm realy interesting to understand some about this codes, anyone have try/made some things like this?

it's not a c++ lenguage or script/Java, it's just a strange code and is so hard to make it work! in 99% of try I have made I've create just a trash image that no software was able to open, maybe there are more powerful image viewers that can "force the opening of these compromised files" but have created virtually nothing.

By experience people have to say that the best thing is to create many clones of the same image to intervene these and not ruin irrimediabilmnete in original file. I also add that to find the notepad on your comp it just right click on an image and do "open with ..." and look for the notepad
really easy

sorry for my bad english hope all is understable

EDIT: http://blog.animalswithinanimals.com...imer-part.html i've find this nice tutorial, or primer, about glitch art, si more accurate and i got why a lot of my .jpg file just destroyed ahaha

is a nice way to make are i think ^^

Re: Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

This reminds me of the old fad for opening random files as raw wav files (almost everything sounds like Merzbow).

I'm going to give it a shot... brb....

All I can make is a junk file that GIMP and MS Paint can't open, so fuck it!

Ditto here..no matter what I do, add, edit or delete, all I get is a corrupted file at the end of it, that no image viewer will open.

So..yeah..fuck it times two! :notafinga:

Unfucking it.

It seems the thing to do is to tell GIMP to open it as a RAW file by clicking on the doodah that says "Select File Type (Automatically Detected)", then you get a load of different options that you can preview.

Re: Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

I'm pretty sure there's an old thread on here somewhere about this exact same thing from a few years back,
but can I find it?
Nope.
If I see it I'll link it here.

Re: Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

The start of a file usually contains header information. Edit further along in the file perhaps?

Wordpad makes its own edits kind of randomly though, whenever it finds a string that looks like a line break or whatever.

I think you basically just need to force open the corrupt files as a raw image (afaik ms paint cannot do that).

Re: Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

You have a pretty good site for all the glitch and datamoshing stuff (but i'm not allowed to post link ^^), it's datamoshing.com

Personally, I had made this thing, I don't really know if it's good or bad

Re: Glitch Art With Notepad Anyone?

it's useful to do this for quick glitch effects in images that you can cut up and photoshop for more control
kinda like splatter painting on a computer
Just make sure you rasterize a lot

You can also glitch videos by opening them in audacity and applying reverb, echo, etc.
