New improvements in Image Trace
- Classification: Auto-detect art type and apply the corresponding preset to give the best result.
- Sketch Clean-up: Better output for sketches.
- Super-Res: Better output for low resolution and low fidelity images.
- Simplify: Remove redundant anchor points.
Yeah, the team is being working to fix this problem :( The latest update (and probably some earlier ones) broke something in the algorithm...
The only workaround so far it to downgrade and wait.

I am glad more improvements are being made. The latest update has made image trace unusable for me now; simple lines and shapes have distorted edges and attempts to fine tune the settings to something passable has taken more time than just rebuilding from scratch. Somehow I've had the hardest time with straight lines.
Upper image previous version of Image Trace. Lower image current version- what happened? Some adjustments are great, but this simple halftone dot looks terrible.
Avinash, we still need an Expand button right there in the dedicated panel.

The Simplify capability to remove redundant anchor points is very useful after one expands the image trace. A real time saver.
