CAD Software for patent drawing

I have a simple invention. Wondering if there is inexpensive CAD software that will transpose a digital photo into a drawing. Drawing will be $750. Wondering if I get decent software for free or cheap.

Those might be a start. I need a patent drawing.
Unfortunately, I don't know the technical requirements for patent drawings.

But you may need a dedicated CAD (computer aided design) package. Note that this type of software if generally more difficult to use that image editor software.

Paul-
A "sketch" like above is all I'll need for a provisional patent. The standards are lower than a final patent.  My invention is simple.  The Patent Office needs b/w "drawings." I'm going to take 5-6 digital photos. All I need is a program that will do what the above program did. So I guess my question is, "What program (under $100) will do it the easiest?"

For an AutoCAD-like solution, a good bet is Draft Sight. I have used it for years and I highly recommend it.
