Ever get bored with unimaginative icons? Icon Craft can change all that.
Icon Craft is a full-featured icon creation and editing tool. It allows you to design and modify icons and cursors, both animated and static. You can also create icon libraries, download existing icons to modify and even make icons from photos and images.
Icon Craft starts by asking you to choose what task you want to perform. If you choose to create a new icon (rather than modifying an existing one), you’ll be able to select the precise measurements and color depth you need, ranging from 16x16 to 256x256 pixels, and from monochrome to True Color + Alpha (32 bits).
You will then be taken to an editing screen that allows you to control almost every aspect of icon creation. There is an extensive toolbar with drawing and text tools, effects, color options and pre-made shapes, among many other options. The editing window is nice and large for ease of use, and there are hotkeys available for almost every option.
Unfortunately, the Icon Craft trial version allows you to save only seven icons and irritatingly urges you to register at every opportunity.
Icon Craft is a comprehensive and fun tool for creating your own icons; it’s just a pity its trial version limitations are so obvious.
Icon Craft supports the following formats
ANI, CUR, ICC, ICL, ICO, ICPR, EXE, DLL, NIL, CPL, OCX, VBX, BMP, JPEG, PNG, PSD, WBMP, GIF, XPM, PDD, TGA, TIF, WMF, EMF, XBM, ICNS, RSRC, ZIP, RAR, DCR, RES
