SIMPLETRACE001 is a very basic Photoshop Action which attempts to create a silhouette of the darker areas of the selected image layer — colours are mostly ignored.  Simple trace does not trace white so the vector shape result is fully transparent allowing for efficient layering of solid shape colours or with the results from other Stipplr Actions. The Stipplr Simple Trace Action allows the designer to set the trace tolerance through the appearance of a modal during execution, the default is set to 1 pixel — values over 5 pixels will generate very loosely traced results. This Stipplr Action is not to be confused with Illustrator’s Live Trace feature, it is provided here as a way to quickly pull a vector shape from your raster sketches or scans quickly for inclusion in a mockup or storyboard. Simple Trace works best when applied to simple linework art, the simple trace vector shape results are stored to a newly created Smart Object layer which is placed above the source layer in Photoshop.  For further details on using Stipplr Actions please browse through the tutorial section on this site.
