How can I animate my picture?

I want to know how can I sort of cartoonize a real picture. If anyone ever saw the movie A Scanner Darkly, then you know what I mean. If not, I was surfing the web and I saw these really cool pictures that someone cartoonized from real pictures. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to do so. Thanks. http://myspace-061.vo.llnwd.net/00989/16/04/989684061_l.jpg http://myspace-163.vo.llnwd.net/00989/36/14/989694163_l.jpg http://myspace-000.vo.llnwd.net/01054/00/04/1054664000_l.jpg http://myspace-740.vo.llnwd.net/01005/04/75/1005505740_l.jpg

I'm afraid there is no "magic wand" software that will do this for you at the click of a button. There are functions within graphics editing programs such as Photoshop that will certainly help you achieve your goals, but to do this requires a certain amount of know-how, skill, and patience.

Also, you seem to be confused between animation and a cartoon effect. If the pictures were animated they would be moving - this is an even hard effect to achieve, and requires even more software, skill, and patience.
