STIPPLE001 applies a stippling technique to the selected image layer in Photoshop, a popular effect used by the WSJ to create hedcuts of their subjects. The stipple pattern concentrates itself in the darker regions of the selected source image while virtually ignoring the pure white areas, while this creates a high contrast stippling effect it also makes the results more authentic to the style.  The stipple dots, while sparce, are more or less evenly spaced to avoid abvious signs of repetition. The stipple pattern itself is applied as a series of layer effects and smart filters which is then auto traced, the vector shape traced results are then stored within a Smart Object layer for easy manipulation or for exporting as paths to Illustrator.
