How do I extract outer and inner contour in an image? Is there a inbuilt function available or do I have to do it from scratch?

I am trying to extract inner contour of an Image. I tried to do this:
>> I3=imread('Image.jpg'); >> I2=bwboundaries(I3);
And I am getting error like this:
Error using bwboundaries Expected input number 1, BW, to be two-dimensional.
Error in bwboundaries>parseInputs (line 187) validateattributes(BW_in, {'numeric','logical'}, {'real','2d','nonsparse'}, ...
Error in bwboundaries (line 140) [BW, conn, findHoles] = parseInputs(args{:});
I tried to even convert the image to binary explicitly and then do it, but still I am getting a different error saying the image size is too large to perform the function.
I am trying to do this command window btw, I don't think that might be one of the problem anyway.
If I have to code it myself, can somebody explain how to do it?
Thanks in advance

Here is an example of using "bwboundaries" to find the inner contours of an image based on the example in the documentation:
I = imread('coins.png');
imshow(I);
BW = imbinarize(I);
[B,L] = bwboundaries(BW,'noholes');
figure;
hold on;
for k=1:length(B)
boundary = B{k};
hold on;
plot(boundary(:,2), boundary(:,1));
end
