The user interface:
Quite easy to use because of the interface that is clear, basic, and provides many options. The icons make it easy to grasp, there is text explaining the functions behind the icons and when applying the different functions a small interface of its own pops up, that makes it easy to use this specific function.

What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!)
"While BeFunky didn’t invent anything with their new photo editor, it’s really good. It’s not that BeFunky has some clever take on filters — it just gives you control over them in a straightforward, easy format." - Nate Swanner, https://www.slashgear.com/befunky-review-your-new-go-anywhere-photo-editor-07377802/
"Something I especially like about BeFunky that separates it from some other similar websites is how it handles layouts." - Stacy Fisher, https://www.thebalance.com/befunky-review-1356947
Testing the tool (learning by doing – trial and error)
What would/could a designer use this tool for?
It can be used by a hobbyist for editing his/her self-made pictures, to create nice collages or business cards for own purposes, but definately not something I see being used by a professional designer of photographer.
Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?
There's both a 'premium' (paid) version and there is a lot of advertisement around the interface. Definately not as 'free' as you would expect.
