Do you find that there's too much talk about creating beautiful photos with the Lumia 1020 and other Windows Phones? You'd not be alone, but there's a handy solution for you. Photo Glitch is an interesting little app that makes it easy for you to corrupt and distort images captured by or stored on a Windows Phone. The end result can be fairly awesome indeed.
Because the idea is simple, there's not a whole lot to the app which makes it super easy to get started with and use without taking up too much time. So what exactly does the corruption and distortion of images involve, and why should you bother with the app? Have you ever witnessed the distortion of images when data is corrupted? That's pretty much what Photo Glitch simulates, rather effectively I might add.
Once you've selected an image (using the file browser or taking a new shot), you'll be able to utilise four sliders to alter the image in some way:
Altering these values (ranging from 1 to 100) will be reflected in the live preview. Once the image has been molested to your liking, you'll then be able to share it using integrated sharing options on Windows Phone. Sure, it's nothing major compared to many other apps on the Windows Phone Store, but you'll have to admit the end results are pretty cool.
So there you have it, folks. An awesome addition to your collection if you enjoy creating cool effects with images, or simply want to spend two minutes destroying a photo of you from holiday you'd rather not share as is. If you'd like to see more added to the app, be sure to reach out to the developer and leave some feedback.
You can download Photo Glitch from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (Windows Phone 8 only, folks). Thanks, Substatica, for the tip!
