I'm doing an assignment for my class where I'm supposed to rip a magazine article into bits and rearrange them into a different shape. But the teacher prefers things to be done in a program, rather than physical art. I've been trying to hours to "rip apart" my selected image in both Illustrator and Photoshop but haven't gotten anywhere.
What am I able to do to divide an image into a lot of little bits that don't all look identical without spending hours and hours on it?
And why is such a simple function to just cut up an image so seemingly impossible?
