Though all of these websites do not substitute for software like "Photoshop" they are really good for editing photos online or creating a simple drawing instead of having to go through the hassle of installing a software into your system, and trust me they are far better than the default MS Paint. Art is all about having fun, so go ahead and have some fun :)
