    NOT FREE!!!!!!!!!!! And they do not tell you it’s not free until after you’ve done all your editing work on it, so now you’ve wasted all that time you spent. (However, there’s nothing to stop you from taking a screenshot of your finished work, is there? You can then paste that into your Windows Paint program and crop the unnecessary part and save the rest to your files. Serves them right!) And shame on you too, ZDWired, for never mentioning this to be a paid service!)
