I have an image that I need to remove the checkered background so I can place it on top of another image. I am new at Illustrator but I do have some experience with it by messing around with it etc. Any help is greatly appreciated. Soccer Ball Net.jpg

This checkered image occurs in two cases.1- Close the Transparency Grid in the View panel.2- Stock images have such images. You can check the layers. If the image is unified or not, you can do this by making Ungroup until the background is selected. Then you can delete it if possible.

For someone looking for the right answer.

Edit -> Edit Original. (delete the checkered layer)

PS. Simple. Have seen annoying people who don't have the answer to this but are quick with the "You need to take lessons ...blah..blah"/silly berating. Now you know...Proud of you for not giving up. Keep learning! Cheers

"For someone looking for the right answer."

 

There is no single "Right" answer to this question.

Depending on how the file has been built, the correct answer can be quite different.

Ad obviously for this case it actually is (because the correct answer has been given years ago).
