I am having some normal photographs, which I want to change to matrix-style images. I searched the web and found some tutorial in Photoshop to change the photos to matrix style. But I can't buy Photoshop for this small task.

Can someone tell me how to change the photos using some cheap or free softwares ? Pointers would help much...

    The Gimp is an excellent freeware alternative to Photoshop, with an extensive collection of filters and effects built in, and the ability to run scripts which can create more sophisticated effects. It should be possible to reproduce the effect you want with the Gimp.

    Here's a site with a bunch of tutorials on creating various sorts of neat-o visual effects with the Gimp, including one for creating a Matrix-style cyber-swooshy effect.
