The thing is i need to include it in a portrait that will be cut by cnc machine , as i need the outlines of the picture to be all connected , including every detail of the face in the picture attached for example , so the cnc machine can move over every connected outline in one cut . 

As'm taking the portrait to place it in the Adobe photoshop and then :

1. Duplicate portrait layers.

2.Make a new layer.

3.Transfer to black and white ,and adjusting levels curve .

4. Then place it on Adobe Illustrator , trace it to black & white ,and trying to adjust it from the settings for tracing ,and the details not shown perfectly as picture attached also . 

5.Then after testing the picture on Illustrator , all of the details is not showing in the proper way , and the CNC machine will cut most of the details .

Sincerely, i need the steps  to be shown as the picture attached .

Thank you so much , In Advance .

Kind regards ,

Mohammed Hamza .

Mohamed,

 

You can do it as kglad said, being careful with the Image Trace settings, not least Strokes,

https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/image-trace.html

 

or you can trace with the Pen Tool.

 

My guess is that you wish to just trace the outer shape, shown pale.

For my part you are welcome, Mohamed.

 

Have you tried the settings/options linked to, especially the Stroke, which I presume is the key to the CNC cutting?

 

You can always set the right Stroke properties (colour/Stroke Weight) after expanding the Image Trace and removing the unwanted inner parts.
