My youngest just draws a picture, then lays it under the board with the little pegs on, because it's transparent.

All he has to do after that is "colour in" with the beads.

However, if you want to use a Photoshop style programme, GIMP is very similar, and free to download. For drawing grids, though, Inkscape might be better, which is also a free download.
