Hello.

I am fairly new to illustrator. I'm working on website design images of t shirts that i will be creating. i have had luck using canva and recently switched over to Illustrator.

 

Wht i'm trying to accomplish for a particular design is to outline an image and for the fill to be transparent? 

 

I've done something similar in cricut design space where i placed my image over a white rectangle and used their "slice" option and it produced three different layers. i've played around with image trace but i seem to end up with the reverse of what i want. I can get the image outlined, but once i place it on top of a rectangle the portion i want to be transparent no longer is.

 

any thoughts? i've attached a picture of the image im using. essentialy i want everything that is green to be transparent. this isnt necessary for me to get my design into production  as it is for me to place on a mock t shirt for my website

You want to end up with just an outline, like this?

If so, you initially want a silhouette from Image Trace. Then click 'Expand' in the Properties panel or Control bar, select the leaf ans press Shift+X to reverse the fill and stroke.
