JPG images are basically raster images not vectors. So if ever you need to convert these images to vectors, you’ll need to save the file in SVG format first. The thing is it isn’t as easy as renaming the file’s extension. You’ll have to use a converter to convert JPG/JPEG images to SVG files.
Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of decent converters online that can convert JPG to SVG. So you can’t always expect to get clear and crisp results. Nonetheless, it’s still better than manually retracing the image using your vector graphics editor.
