That tip was a big help. Thank you! What worked was BLOWING IT UP to trace into a vector and THEN shrinking it down to tiny.
Once it’s tiny, BLOW IT UP again back to normal size.
It works. 48×48.
What amazes me with this is that I have a lazy right eye. It ACTUALLY caught that and kept it, even at such a small resolution. That’s how I know this is good.
