Glitch techniques

rob_sheridan:

I found that JPEGs (left) and PSDs (right) corrupted in wonderfully different ways, and that rendering methods mattered (for example, damaged Photoshop files render much more interestingly in OSX's Preview than in Photoshop itself, which won't even open overly-damaged files). [...]

I would try inserting various chunks of junk text into different parts of an image's code, seeing where and how it would break the image. I tried a lot of text sources, like paragraphs from Star Trek slash fiction, but found text from random Wikipedia articles most useful.
