You sir are a genius....
Followed your instructions with these few differences:
Used Preview to change file type to pict. - check
Imported image as pict. - check
Then simply click anywhere on the open work area and the picture is pasted in glorious realtime - ta da!!
Jpeg to traceable image in 5 seconds flat - hours of searching for a solution when all I had to do was ask here.
* It just never occurred to me before that you had to "paste the image down" by one click of the mouse
After this it behaves like any other selectable element
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
