Remove background color?

Asked by Deb Kimble on 2012-08-08

I have a jpeg with a white background that I am trying to convert to a vector file with a transparent background. The "fill" function does not seem to be doing the trick. Advice?

Importing the bitmap file doesn't convert it automatically to vector, and you must trace it (with Path>Trace Bitmap) first. Then it will be possible to select the vector objects and modify their attributes.

Can you help with this problem?
