Laser Cutting - Engrave then cut outline. Easy method?

When laser cutting, if I want to take an image and engrave the details and then cut out the outline what is the easiest way to accomplish this.
To my understanding, I can use Corel Draw to convert to bitmap then delete all detail to leave only outline to make two different files.  
However, when I create my bitmap the edit bitmap feature disappears.

Any insight to an easy method for taking something like a picture of a line drawn tree, engraving detail, then cutting out the outline would be very helpful.

Ultimately you want to get to a vector or a tracing via something like a pen tool (depends on the actual application)

Can you post the picture?
