Converting Image Files

I have an image file that contains various shapes. These shapes I want to
use
and manipulate as a normal series of lines/arcs.

How can I convert this image file so that the shapes appear as if I has
drawn
them?

There are a number of solutions :-

Insert the image in AutoCad, then trace over the objects.
Buy standalone raster to vector conversion software - Scan2Cad (about £85)
But a 3rd party add-on software, Cad Overlay, R2V etc - can be £1000-3000

This might work for your purposes:
You can use image clip on copies of the image & break the parts up to move
them around. Be sure to turn off imageframe.
