    I downloaded the first edition of this magazine then forgot about it.

    I just got caught up downloading the rest - there is alot of cool stuff in it!

    I thought the subscribe for free to download part was weird but it's probably so they can give legitimate subscription/viewer counts to advertisers, as it is advertiser-paid ...free to you the photographer.
