So I've been using GraphicsGale for years now. The free edition features are such that you basically never need to pay - all the paid version adds is animated GIF and windows icon support.
But since this is what I'm doing full-time, now, I'm going to be using less free editions of software. I figure if I'm going to profit, they should, too. It occurred to me that I could also make use of the GIF-exporting ability of GraphicsGale, as well! So I went ahead and got the license. Above are the first fruits of my newly paid status. Enoy :)
