GRAYSCALE004 is a Stipplr Action which reduces the select source image in Photoshop down to wroughly 24 shades of gray. The effect is achieved by generating a few dozen layered vector trace shapes which are each assigned a predetermined opacity setting — the grayscale effect is made more intense by the fact that each layer’s opacity level interacts with the layer above and below it.  This blending effect across all layers completes the grayscale illusion and the designer is left with a result that looks like an image which has been converted to a grayscale palette but is in fact just a series of vector shapes with preset opacity levels.  The vector trace shapes are generated through a series of predetermined Adjustment Layer settings which are used to help identify regions in the source image.  The vector tracing is done through a combination of the color range modal and clipping paths feature in Photoshop, the clipping path is ultimately stored as a vector shape layer which itself can be exported as paths to Illustrator — however, please note that this Stipplr Action renders multiple vector shapes to generate the end result and may prove to be impractical as a means to export vector paths to Illustrator.
