Why am I only getting grayscales / monotones when applying colors in Adobe Illustrator?


Question

When I try to change the color after tracing a JPEG image in Illustrator and expanding it, it becomes gray. I have tried lots of color changes but the result is always the same.

Why can't I change the color to anything other than gray, on an image I've traced in Adobe Illustrator?

How can I change the traced image's color?

My guess is that your document colours are set to grayscale. Go to the colour panel, click the little down-arrow in the top right corner, and change there:
