In photoshop i created a bird by using triangles made with the polygonal lasso tool and i used 416 different layers created out of triangles and saved them in the actions tabby recording each step. when i made the first triangle i put an average blur on it. I changed the keyboard shortcuts to F1 so it used average blur on the triangles i created. then i created a background using a gradient. i used CMD + J to make a new layer.
