Weird blur/glitching when zoomed in really close on the cursor in Mac OS X.
Stack Focusing Glitch
Glitch trying to use Photoshop’s stack focusing algorithm on a barely-there image.
An amazing image via my colleague Alex Wellerstein: a muster roll for the USS Growler from 1963, crumpled up before being shot to microfilm. If I had to choose, I think I like glitched data the best.
Thanks Alex for the image (via US National Archives and Records Administration).

Totally obsessed with the idea of inpainting, used to reconstruct and remove items from images automatically. I’m especially in love with the glitchy, Predator-esque ghosting that remains.
This is very easy to accomplish with OpenCV and a few lines of code – here I’ve run this with a radius of 5px. The results are actually pretty usable, especially in busy or small areas of the image.
The very simple code to run everything:
import numpy as np
input_image = 'bedroom.jpg'
mask_image = 'bedroom-mask3.jpg'
radius = 5
img = cv2.imread(input_image)
mask = cv2.imread(mask_image)
mask = cv2.cvtColor(mask, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
dest = cv2.inpaint(img, mask, radius, cv2.INPAINT_TELEA)
cv2.imwrite('Telea-' + str(radius) + '.jpg', dest)
And here’s the same input, but with a really weird, blobby, random mask:
