    Apologies but it is not so straightforward converting from Raster (eg bmp,jpg) to Vector (shp). There are 2 ways of acheiving this however both involve a lot of work. You can digitise the raster image file yourself. The alternative is to use an R2V software. Examples of such software are TraceArt, Algolab, Scan2CAD, ArcScan etc. In almost all cases, the image has to be monochromatic, otherwise, results will not be accurate.

    Hope this helps.
