          You can't.

          That feature was introduced with FWs 8

            You can't. Fireworks does not have such a feature yet. You'll need to
            use FreeHand MX's Trace feature if you have that application (it came
            with Studio MX) or Illustrator CS2's Live Trace feature. Illustrator had
            a tracing feature before CS2 but nowhere as good as CS2's Live Trace or
            FreeHand's Trace.

              You can't convert raster images to vector in any software.

              You can rebuild the image as a raster based on the raster however, either
              through manuall re-tracing (in FW) or using a auto-tracer like in Freehand
              or Flash and then tweaking it when done to correct any mistakes.

                  It can only be done manually. Fireworks has no tracing feature. Use
                  Illustrator for this kind of work.
