Drawing plugin

Hello,

I’m working on a site that needs to allow a user to draw something using
their mouse. I’m looking for something similar to MS-Paint, but in
browser.
I need the app to be able to use the image after they are done.

Lightweight and simple are the most important things; can anyone
recommend
something that will work well with Rails?

Could you use a canvas element? You’d have to write some javascript to
allow people to draw on it obviously.

And you’ll have no Internet Exploder support whatsoever. Simply said,
at the moment, I know of no capable inbrowser drawing application.
Maybe there’s some Flash component out there that can do it, that’s
your best best to be honest.

excanvas (http://excanvas.sourceforge.net/) purports to add internet
explorer support, though I don’t know how well.
