I am preparing a set of draughts of the Royal Caroline of 1749, and I want to include all the carved work. I intend to draw all the carved work by hand, using ink and pencil, and then scan the drawing, remove the background rectangle, and import just the carving into CAD.
However, I cannot find any way of permanently removing the unwanted background, and creating a file with just the outline of the carving and all its detailing. Everything I have tried, and I have spent quite a few hours with several programs attempting this, leaves a white rectangle which blanks out all existing objects around it.
Is anyone aware of a method of removing the background rectangle, leaving just the lines and shading I have drawn.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I am using AutoCAD LT2016, and have tried Photoshop elements and Power Point to remove the background.
Example file below.
All the best,
