Destroying the bitmap, deconstructing the pixel.

But apart from that TextEdit effect doesn't really sound nice, (or does it?) I think this kind of naming of an effect/bent is not sufficient, because the effect is not (just) dependent on the software but on specific changes in the code. Although it is a more general name, I think that the more general term 'image bending' (or data bending, yes mcfiredrill :), still works a lot better. How its done: open a BMP file in TextEdit (or wordpad, or... ), move some code from here to there and then save it.
