Making an svg file from a jpeg or png file

A friend has asked me to see if I could cut out a jpeg file that he sent me. Using Inkscape I imported it & then saved it as an svg file. 

The issue cropped up when I tried to cut it using LaserWeb 4. It loaded okay but would only allow me to raster it.

Does any one know what I’m doing wrong?

Hi Patrick, you must convert the image to a vector by ‘tracing the bitmap’ in inkscape to make it a true svg.

Watch this youtube video or one similar to  learn how to do that.
