4- Find your image and select it.I am using Mermaid SVG bundle from designbundles.net

5- A new window will appear with your Jpeg in it. You have the option to trace the outline or trace by color. With colored images it is good to trace by color.

10- With all the lines selected, click and drag off the original Jpeg.

12- Click on file and the transfer to your scan and cut machine via wireless. If you do not have the wireless function transfer via USB or cord.
