I am trying to convert the attached image into an SVG (vector graphics) image with no/transparent background. I know something about layers, masks, and channels, but cannot find the correct set of operations to extract the black components of the base image and reconstruct them as one vector graphics image that can then be resized without "pixellation" (blurring/loss of pixels) and saved as other image types.
My original thoughts were to extract the two major black features using a mask. Fill in the outline where it is overlayed in the original image so it would then be complete. This should then be easy enough to convert into a "path", or otherwise convert into a vector graphics image by itself. The remainder of the original image, the "tower", would take several steps to seperate ITS component sections, and then convert them into a "path", or seperate SVG. Once all of the components have been seperated and converted, it should be easy enough to combine them into one SVG, which can then be expanded or otherwise modified without any more problems, leaving it with a transparent background. I have tried to go through the Gimp User Manual but can't seem to find all of the necessary steps, or the proper order, to produce the desired, final SVG, and find myself getting somewhat lost. Any suggestions to accomplish what I need will be most welcome.
