STROKE044 attempts to create a smooth vector linework outlining the subjects in the selected image layer.  The end result is not unlike the stroke outline in comic books, but its success depends purely on the contrast levels in the selected image layer within Photoshop.  Once the Stipplr Action is executed it quickly clones the selected layer and applies multiple layer and filter affects which assist in highlighting potential contour lines within the image layer.  These contour lines are then traced with assistance from the color range tool and stored as a vector stroke shape fill wrapped within a Smart Object (some vector shape results are so large they can slow down the performance of Photoshop — keeping them wrapped in a Smart Object solves this problem).  Not all photos will be ideal for tracing, differences in resolution, contrast, blurriness etc all work for, or against, a successful conversion.  For tips on how to manually prepare images for maximum results please read through our tutorials on this site.
