I think you're loony tunes for buying $2,000 worth of software in the first place. Go get a copy of this and see what free software can do F-Engrave Why, it even runs on Windows. Although frankly I don't know how well that version works. I just run the Python script in Linux. Although it only accepts certain format images. So you will have to know how to do file conversions. That may be a bit technically challenging for you? I use this free software to convert images to a format that F-Engrave can handle https://www.gimp.org/ Just use the export feature it has.
I use a completely free tool chain here and it works well enough for me.
