Got the world clipart thingy from the online and vector traced it ( maybe not completely, not sure ) and was trying to put it next to some text for a design. Problem is it's not transparent and is in this white box, so when i try to place it next to the text the white overlaps and doesn't work.
Option1: When using Image trace and configuring it to trace something, expand the Advanced area on the Image Trace Panel (Window > Image Trace) and then tick the ignore white option:
Option B: After you've traced. Click the Expand button on the control bar across the top of the screen. Then use the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow) to click and delete white-filled objects.
