Placing and tracing the image: No Drawing Necessary: Custom Shapes in Photoshop

To trace a photographic image in Illustrator, first, place the image into a blank or very simple document using File > Place. Then click on the Image Trace button in the Properties or Control panel. Do not reduce the resolution of the image! To create a custom shape, set the Preset option to Silhouettes. Then, bring up the Image Trace panel and reduce the Threshold value. Finally, make sure to turn on the Ignore White checkbox.
