I can offer some ideas to get you started.

I use the GD image system for manipulating pictures


Create Image

From File
$source = imagecreatefromjpeg(filename);

From Database
$source = imagecreatefromstring($row->imagedata);

$img = imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height);
imagecopyresampled($img, $source, ....)

imagefilter($img, IMG_FILTER_NEGATE);

header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');


Once you've got an image loaded, you can apply quite a few filters:-


I'm sure with some testing/tweaking you could get the desired cartoon effect
