    no, it's not free,

    go to download.com for the info.. it's quite expensive as you'll see.

    if the price is too high, i recommend IrfanView as a free, and probably considerably less feature-filled alternative.


    EDIT: I just read another post, maybe you should go for one of these.

    That link was version 7 which I had seen posted on here before as free, didn't say anything avout a trial version either. Wish I had downloaded myself it was truly free because I could have given it to others as an alternative to purchasing. Wonder why it's no longer on there, also wonder if it was really free or they were giving away something they were not supposed too? Can't seem to find any other information elsewhere for free full version 7 so I wonder?

    I'm aware of that but it was version 7 not the newest which is 10. And if it was inline with most photo editors that was probably the version where they peaked or right before it, most of the newer versions for any of the editors just add a bunch of bloat. That's not to say it is all bloat. If it was free then it would be well worth the download.

    That version 7 is FREE and was the last version that Jasc made before PSP was sold to Corel.
    Jasc even had it posted at there web site before it was taken down after Corel took over.

    Guess to many people have been going there. The guy is on dial-up because he moved.
    Or site was getting to many downloads so he had to take that download away.

    Anyhow guess it can be uploaded to one of those servers that let you upload big files.

    Yes it's a shame it's gone again, :(
    It was great for those beginners to use before splashing out on a later version

    Yea to bad. Maybe people should email him and ask what happen.

    Long ago he had it and took it down but then after so many asked what happen it put it back up.

    Then on the update patch I downloaded it and burned it to a CD and mailed it to him because of where he moved to it would of taken him to long to download.

    Hey, I am the guy with the web site (http://com-puterworks.com) that used to have PSP 7. Just wanted to say that someone ratted me out to Corel, so they sent me a letter ordering me to remove it. I still have it but I don't dare post it at my site. If anyone has a site that can post it let me know. As far as I knew it was a free download until Corel took over. Hey, Hewee, I have high speed again.

    Welcome ComWorks to TSG. :)

    Yes it was free and was even free at Jasc web site. But then Corel too over and many of the Jasc sites went down or they take you to Corel web site.

    Hey great to hear you got high speed again.

    This is a great site so stay around and get to know the good people here. :)

    What does the EULA say? If it says it's free and more importantly if says it can be distributed freely... I don't think there is a thing Corel can do about it.

    Send me a copy of the EULA, there's copyright lawyer on a video site I frequent and he's usually more than willing to offer opinions. He gets blasted all the time by the "it's my disc, I should be able to do whatever I want with it crowd" but his advice is always sound and based on fact. Maybe he'll take a look at it.
