I have friends that have "cartoonized" their profile picture in the social network. How can I do that too.

I have only very elementary knowledge of graphics (ms-paint).

Have you asked your friends how they did theirs -- perhaps they could help you to do yours? –  mas Aug 26 '09 at 11:03

You'll need a more advanced graphics program than Microsoft Paint. Programs like Photoshop and GIMP (which is free) include plugins and filters that can modify a photo in creative ways. Unfortunately, their user interfaces can be pretty intimidating for a new user.

Paint.NET is a free Windows program that can do some effects, like pencil sketch. (It's also great for general image editing - resizing, cropping, working with layers, changing formats, etc.)
