artistic conversion of 2D photo to 3D printable

I'm looking for a tool to help convert a 2D photo to a 3D model. Including mapping selected contour lines into contours in the 3D model. Any pointers?
Thanks.

Can you post an example?

I use Vector Magic a lot to convert raster images to vector formats. It might help with your contour lines. https://vectormagic.com/

A second option is a lithopane: Lithopane - Make Your Own

You can instead get a 3D scanner from 3D Printers Online Store and scan a physical object to get its digital image. This digital image could be altered according to your needs and could also be printed in a desired 3D object.
