Hi all. I am a complete Illustrator newbie, meaning this is my first attempt to use it.

 

I opened up this picture, because I want to practice tracing it, but as you can see, the picture is in portrait, but the canvas is landscape.

 

How can I fit the picture into the canvas, or is it the other way?

 

Thanks in advance.Screenshot (210).png

Object -> Artboards -> Fit to Artwork Bounds

or 

Object -> Artboards -> Fit to Selected Art (For this your art mjust be selected)
