I am making a website where in users should be able to make drawings like in MSPAINT on the webpage. Are there some open source libraries that can be integrated into a webpage to enable users to draw and save their pictures?

The best way to go about it would be to intergrate a flash file into your webpage.

Flash applications such as this one : http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Applications/Full_Ske-Ryan_Cam-22/index.php allow the site visitor, to draw whatever they like, with anti-alised imaging aswell.

With AS 2.0 and 3.0 it is also possible to configure buttons which will save the image as a GIF/JPEG file, and store them in a MySQL database, and I have seen various examples of these things before around the internet...It is probably the easiest application to code and get up and running in terms of intergrating a drawing program to a website.
