Thank you ! that last video was really helpful.
I hadn;t realised how sensitive it was to were one clicks with the mouse..
You're right it works perfectly.. I just needed to click in a different place on the graphic (if I click on his forehead it doesn't work.. if I click on his ear it does !!) .. i.e. you have to click exactly on the edge and then it works
Thank you for such a quick reply and resolution.

@ambros Because the image has a thin white contour, tracing it with the default settings will result it two objects — a black shape and a separate gray contour.
So I guess you deleted the black shape and then tried to change the fill of the gray contour instead of deleting the contour shape and using the black filled shape.
It is important to remember, that the trace is "live", linked to the image and can be updated (retraced).
It has to be expanded and ungrouped to have the vectors.
Here is what I get with tracing:
These are the settings I used:
Also: the forum file size issues are still persisting.
@ambros One option that might also be useful:
If you do not need the "live" feature of the trace, then uncheck the "Keep with Image" in the Trace panel menu.
In this case, there will be no need for expand, but an ungroup is still needed to get to the resulting curves.

I am not sure what you mean about the thin white contour - i didn't see that on mine I don't think?
The white background of the image was cleared in such a way that there is still a thin white contour around the black drawing.
If you view the image over a black background (you can change the forum's skin to 'Cyborg' from your account's Settings), you will see this clearly.
Thanks @b77 got it
@vectoradmin Yes thank you that is useful
