I'm trying to take a picture and turn it into a 3d image using lightwave. I'd rather not take the time to model it.

In other 3d modeling programs I have run across, there is an option to create an object based on an image. The program converts the image to grayscale. Anything that is white is completely raised and anything that is black is completely flat.

Is there such an option in lightwave?

Yes, you can apply the image to a subdivided plane as a Displacement Map. You'll find the option in the Object Properties panel under the Deform tab.
