I used to do this by opening up jpegs in a hex editor and changing random bytes to keyboard spam. It was kind of fun to see how much you could change before the file would refuse to load at all.

I find this topic so frustrating because I fell in love with the Glitch look but was unable to use ANY of the tutorials I had found. so many tutorials had comments 'oh this doesn't seem to work in the new version' or some such.
