Alphas to Meshes?

Hello everybody,
I have got another (maybe stupid) Blender question: For a university project I need to model lots of glass fragments based on photos. As I already have their shape here is my question: Is there any chance to produce a flat mesh out of a alpha-map-like black-and-white image so the mesh has the shape of the black area? This would save me ages of time. Any help would be very appreciated.

I guess you could convert the bitmaps to vectors with (for example with Illustrator or, and import those into Blender. Then extrude in path options.
