Well, I don't think a bump map will do the job. If you have 3.0, use the Applique function on a plane with a LOT of subdivisions. Set up the pic just as you would a bump map. Then pick the plane, choose Applique, find the pic, and say ok. Then just morph between the two objects(flat and Applique'd). Hope this helps...
