From a QCAD user:
How can I insert a bitmap into a QCAD drawing, for example to trace over it for vectorization?

You can insert a JPEG/PNG/BMP/TIFF image using Draw > Insert Bitmap:
https://qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/refere ... /doc/Image

You can use the property editor to adjust the transparency using the "Fade" property.
