    There are two options that i know:
    1- Import the image file as a sketch picture and then use splines and lines to extract the sketch. It will take time but will give the accurate results.
    2- Use of Autotrace command. It can be found in the options>ad ins>Autotrace. But this will give the output sketch with respect to the quality of the image i.e. shadows, borders, brightness & contrast etc.
    Hope it helps :)

    I agree with Momin's answers. As a third option, I often use Vector Magic to convert images and lines to a DXF file that I can import into SolidWorks. It gives much better results when compared to the Autotrace add-in
