Picture looks fine when inserting, but when I go to Autotrace it greyes/blacks out.
I`ve tried .png .jpg .bmp
I`m in a bit of a rush here so any help would be most appreciated
I've rarely used that feature, but I'd suggest starting with adjusting the option shown below.
Not sure why your image isn't visible but it looks like you haven't selected an area to trace yet as it's greyed out. Try drawing a rectangular area & see what happens when you click Begin Trace.
It also goes back to greyed out after Trace. Working for me in SW2020
What's your file format? I found when inserting a PNG the image was totally black.
Since when have these features been available in Sketch Picture function? I'm on 18 and don't see any mention in 2019 or 2020 what's new...
This is my Sketch Picture option:
You have to turn on the Autotrace add-in.

I can trace the screen shot (SW2019) and it doesn't go black on page 2 of the PM:
Perhaps posting your image file in the OP will help.
Maybe I`m doing it all wrong
It works for me in 2018.
..I gave up on that feature a long time ago... it's a waste of time... this is what I use online.

..the other is "InkScape" (trace bitmap)

Hi Omur,.. I guess it depends on what gives the better export... but DXF, SVG (native) and AI are what I'd test.

A far easier option is to 'www' a vector logo. Then you won't need to trace it.
John Deere logo
And by `www` you mean?
