This patch works sometimes but mainly doesn't

Greetings and thanks in advance for your time.
I copied this patch from an Internet tutorial. It uses jit.gen to alter the contrast of an jpg image and converts the image into a particle system for manipulation. I've been over it and over it many times; it has functioned as intended on occasion but essentially it does no work reliably for me on a Macbook Pro using Max 7 (M4L 8 installed.)
I'm not experienced enough to see where the signal flow may be getting lost or confused. There is no information in the console that hints at any internal errors.
So what I think I need is some advice about how to dig out the issue. I could be in plain sight or it could be down in the guts.
In addition, if you can point me to any other material about using particle systems on images and/or video, I'd be grateful.
This being my first post, I'll now try to get the patcher here for you to look at. Thanks for your help.
