How do I select an object for Image Trace?

Apr 5, 2013 12:52 PM

I am new to Illustrator, but know that I need to select the object I'd like to trace before using Image Trace. The problem is every time I used the selection tool, the entire picture is selected, and then traced.

I have looked everywhere online for a solution, can someone please help me? thanks!

    Which version of Illustrator are you using ?


    But then, in Illustrator you cannot "select" objects (people, trees, mushrooms for example) inside a raster art object which is seen as one flat object.


    You may want to elaborate a bit in order to get a good answer.

    Illie doesn’t know what a cake is. She only traces whole images. Which is what Kurt said.
