Combo Apps/GLITCHÉ

Glitche Demo

I’ve finally broke down, bit the bullet and got Glitche. To add to the craziness on this blog post, I even gave into buying the in-app purchase for high resolution saves. Sometimes I have to give in and just buy it. It turned out I’m glad, I did buy the whole enchilada. The top image was edited with Glitche.

I load up my image I’m going to use to show the different filters/effects with Glitche. I play with Channels first. You can adjust the hues when you play with the different color channels. My favorite is Red/Cyan.

When you use channels, the colors will manipulate the image too. It’s like a 2-in-1 process.

The next editing effect is Grid. What this does is outline your image into a lines that are vertical and horizontal. You can really push the grid on your image to give it a loud feeling.

You can also make a 3 second motion clip.

These are some other types of editing effects you can do with Glitche. You have a lot of great choices and possibilities with making some crazy digital art. This app is really extreme. It’s the main reason I like this app so much. I love apps that can push your creativity and explore other outlets.

Overall opinions, I like the idea of having some control over your glitch results. A few of them you just have to roll with the punches and hit the button at the perfect time. Unlike Decim8, when I have to sit and play for while until I get something I like. Glitche is one of the best apps to come for real digital artistic results. Another great thing about Glitche is you can pile on glitch layers on to of each other. Sometimes I like to blend other glitches together to be different. If you plan on getting the Hi RES output save, it’s $2.99 and resolution save is 2400 x 2400.

    One of my favourite apps. Great review.

  3. I’ve seen and spent some time with glitching apps, but there simply isn’t an app capable of what the glitch artists are doing. even in the big facebook groups like “glitch request” (g/r) where you post a pic and members save the image, glitch it, then post it in the comment thread (great concept and works very well), they use the audio editing freeware Audacity to save the image as a RAW Bitmap. the image data imports into audacity as an audio wave spectrum (you can listen to the image, but it’s really just a combo of white, pink & brown noise), from there certain areas of the linear format can be selected and filters/plug-ins/AU/effects are applied to the data, essentially warping and twisting the pixels of the image into amazing glitched images.
    but it takes a lot of trial & error to find out what works and what doesn’t .. it’s easy to simply destroy every resemblance to the original image if you don’t have the experience. iColrama has an entire glitching menu with sub menus that are a bit contrived at times, but still the best app I’ve seen that makes glitch effects.
    as far as the audacity “purist” route goes, if you want to know how to do it, Google search it since it’s a very specific process and requires an outdated version of audacity – the latest version won’t work.
    I realize that audacity isn’t an app for iOS or Android, but I thought that ppl might want to know:

    cause I sure wanted to know and it turned out to be a bit complicated for a random destructive force applied to the perfection of a digital copy of an image .. plus when I was a kid, we still had Verticle hold knobs on televisions – and it sucked. it wasn’t an artistic process.
