PNGlitch is a Ruby library to destroy your PNG images.
With normal data-bending technique, a glitch against PNG will easily fail because of the checksum function. We provide a fail-proof destruction for it. Using this library you will see beautiful and various PNG artifacts.
For more details about glitching PNG image, see my documentation The Art of PNG Glitch.
require 'pnglitch' PNGlitch.open('/path/to/your/image.png') do |p| p.glitch do |data| data.gsub /\d/, 'x' end p.save '/path/to/broken/image.png' end
