A quick tip: You can load images from their direct URL regardless of the website’s option for it. Do this by copying the image URL and then pasting it in the file name field instead of choosing a local file.
This will actually download the file locally, in the background, and then load it up as if you were selecting a local file.
Most of these websites offer very similar features but they each have their own reason as to why you should use them. Some allow editing or easily loading directly from a URL, while others support a greater variety of conversion formats.
