UPDATED! The photo library glitch has been fixed, so glitch away!
The Satromizer takes its name from Chicago new media artist Jon Satrom ( http://jonsatrom.com/ ), who frequently employs glitches in his work. I've created many versions of the Satromizer with Jon over the years, but this one is special... The responsiveness and tactility of the multitouch interface make this my favorite version yet.
To use the Satromizer, simply touch the screen where you want to add a glitch. You can use multiple fingers to glitch more than one area at a time. To reset the image, just double tap. To load new images, tap the info button. You can load in images from your Photo Library, take a new photo with the Camera, or save your current glitch to the Photo Library.
Adjust the JPEG compression level with the slider to experiment with different looks. Lower JPEG quality levels glitch faster and easier, and higher settings create more stripe and offset patterns. Adjust the size slider to glitch anything from full images to smaller pixelated versions.
Check out the website for more information, including example videos and the Satromizer flickr pool.
- You can now load images from the photo library in iOS 5.
- Satromizer now remembers the last image you were glitching!
