I've dropped my vector logo image onto my .PNG image of a girl wearing a teeshirt.
I go to Object/mockup/place, but 'place & release' are greyed out.

 

Any suggestions please?

The logo looks like a linked file. If it's really a vector file, try embedding it first.

Pixel on Pixel does not work. Top object needs to be vector

Correct! I had to go to the links window, click on the menu (three lines) then click 'embed image'.
Now I can apply the mockup and it works fantastically. Thank you!

I've put an .SVG of a logo on top of both an adobe stock image and an owned image but mockup beta is still inaccessible for me.
I have tried every variation of opening the original artwork individually, then copy [pasting into the a new project. The logo is arranged in the front, both are embedded objects, I have also tried with both images saved as .SVG vectors but this appears to not work for me.

An SVG is not necessarily a vector file.

Okay wait, I see once I did the message trace it was then a vector that I could bring overt to the other image and do the mockup. Second questino is how to I make the background, outside of the letters in the vector, transparent. My goal is for it to look like a stitched logo on the gament. So i can send the concept to a seamstress.

You would need to expand the trace and then delete that part. 

Don't you have a vector version of that logo?

 

And really it would be easier to open the jacket and the logo in Photoshop, delete the white part and just leave it on top of that jacket. There is no distortion to be expected.

Trying that but everytime I remove the background of the logo it removes the second portion of the logo. I'm struggle bussing here 🙂 The goal is to get the whole logo saved as vecotr and then placed over a few different angles of the garment for mockup purposes. I'm just out of my depth and this is so simple for most people deep into photoshop that I miss the terminology. Is there a way to enable not a smart guy mode in Ai or Ph with tooltips that say what each thing does?

Here's how to autotrace that: https://youtu.be/xcJxoZT0C84

Here's the artwork, traced. https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/jkjs5t9oaecejzju6w59q/trace.ai?rlkey=5z6n1fsyvxgzha9h1a06u2vrj&dl=0 

 

It's just that it's a whole different concept than Illustrator. And still I do not think that it's even necessary to use Illustrator's Mockup function for this. Just put that logo on the jacket. No distortion necessary.

Thanks, I am trying to do the stock images of the hoodie and then on some photos from people actually wearing it that is why i thought the mockup tool would be best use case.
