The magic that makes pictures move in the HP universe comes from the wizards and witches around them. They do not move for muggles and squibs. The portraits at Hogwarts and Grimmauld Place were sentient because they had so much juice from many powerful mages. This is the other why Arabella Figg seemed brusque with Harry; if she was minding him, it was her only chance to see her mother and friends in the Order, who died in the First Wizard War, smile and wave at her, and she had to do it surreptitiously and hide her tears.

ETA: that's right, Figg's parents were alive in book five. Still.
