Playing around with deformed images

The other day the super-cool Pinguino was asking about the effect you get when an image does not download properly.

I had wondered about it before, so I opened some images, tore out a big chunk of the underlying data, and looked at them. The first is what it looks like when a GIF is torn apart, and the second is what happens when it happens to a JPG.

It’s a neat effect.

What also happens is that some people even think they see evidence for alien civilizations:
