GRAYSCALE001 converts the selected source image in Photoshop into approximately 4 shades of grayscale breaking it down to almost the bare minimum shapes to represent the source image. The generated vector shapes have a very jagged edge which traces out the shade contour within the image, all vector shape layers are fully editable and can be set to custom shades of gray by the designer or manually filled with alternate colours.  The shades in this grayscale action script are predetermined by the Stipplr Action script and do not directly come from the source image itself although the composition of the stacked vector shapes does inform how intense the grayscale can appear in specific areas within the result.  All vector traced shaped results are stored within a Smart Object which is created to contain the vector shapes for easier manipulation such as transformations and layer effects — the Smart Object can be exported as paths to Illustrator but be warned that the exported contents will not contain the fill or path data (ie, fill colour, line styles etc are not exported with the path data).  For additional support and training for use of Stipplr Actions please visit the tutorials section of this site.
