The glitch effect. When visualized, the first thing that comes to mind is the classic color television static that appeared when you lost a signal. Or maybe you might think of having experienced a glitch on a website while browsing. Perhaps even during a very buggy gameplay, if you’re a gamer. For example, your character might appear on a different dimension or parallel plane in-game that shouldn’t be appearing on screen. When we’re playing around with creative programs like Pixlr, Inkscape or Photoshop, we get to experiment with pretty interesting image effects. While the glitch effect may have been on the market for some time, it’s been appearing everywhere. If you’ve been exploring sites like Tumblr or Reddit, chances are this effect may have popped up on your feed. Many Tumblr users dabble in GIFs or graphics with the glitch effect for purely aesthetic or humorous reasons.
