How to remove background on image

How do I outline a picture and remove background then save as a jpg file to engrave.

The background is most easily removed in a program like Photoshop or GIMP, then the resulting image needs to be saved as a PNG file, opened in a program like Illustrator or Inkscape, and then Auto-traced to create the cut line around it. Once the cut line is created, you can save the file as an SVG with the image file embedded in it, and you will have all of the components included that you need.

If you need something done quickly there are also online engines like -

This has been discussed before.

You’re a lifesaver. Thanks
