Some instant thoughts:

1) Would be great if you could load an image from file.

2) For your hex line up problem, two suggestions:
a) Pre-calculate the sin/cos values and hold them in an array for speed
b) You only need to calculate the top part of each hex, then the bottom lines are made by the next hex down. That should fix your line up problems.
c) Instead of (a), you could just calculate the points for a large hex, then scale them or create a PNG image of a hex and overlay it many times.

3) The lines are a little jaggy - could they be anti-aliased to clean them up? Or is the jagginess a function of the calculations?

Nice tool though, and very fast.
