Replacing a bitmap image in CorelDraw


If I have a bitmap image that has been cropped to an irregular shape (say a star or pear etc)  is there any way in CorelDraw to replace the image without having to crop and position the bitmap all over again. I thought It would be as simple as clicking edit bitmap & pasting the new image once in corel photo paint but that does not seem to be the case.


edit: also is it possible to swap the image with a higher resolution version.

any help would be appreciated
