I downloaded an adobe stock image to edit and use as a business logo but no matter what I try, I can not get the background transparent. Adobe stock number is 286280957 and Im using newest version of Illustrator with creative cloud

  If you need to isolate an image you need to create a layer in Photoshop. Is the Stock a vector or a pixel?

If it is a vector you just isolte it by selecting the logo. You can check the trspatent pixel: View: View Trasparent pixel or can do it in the properties panel.

Please send more info so we can assist you!

Because of the blending modes involved in creating the glow effects, it needs to be on some kind of background to work visually. You can delete the one that is there and add your own. Some colours work better than others.

 

How do you intend to use it?

Thanks for feedback! I am trying to put on a transparent background so that I can make car decals and shirts for marketing the busines. I believe its a vector image but I am very new to this. Whenever I try to address separating that background or change any part of it, it takes it all in one piece. Separating the layers wont work and many other methods from youtube and online threads hasnt worked.

It is a vector image.

If you look in the layers panel, there are two layers -- 'diamond' and 'background'. You can delete everything on 'background' and replace it with whatever you like, but you'll notice if you remove the background entirely, the glow areas turn grey/black. This is because they work by interacting with the colours of the background in various ways, called 'blending modes'. The image doesn't work on an entirely transparent background.
