Image quality

IconEdit2 is an award-winning icon editor for Windows. It supports semi-transparency, multiple images in a single icon file, and anti-aliasing in all drawing tools. It has a number of image filters, and retains high image quality when resizing an image.

 

 

Easy to use

Despite advanced features, all of them are easy to use. You can draw, undo/redo, search for icons in your files, and create new icons instantly by capturing screen areas or opening image files or photos.

 

 

Export for iPhone and Android

You are just one click away from having a number of PNG files sized specifically for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Android.

Any computer user who completely wants to customize their desktop has to figure out how to change and create icons. This bare-bones program for designing icons doesn’t have as many features as some of its rivals, but does offer a straightforward interface and approach that average users will likely appreciate. It provides a basic set of graphics tools for building icons from scratch, as well as a handful of visual effects. Alternately, users can use the screen-capture mode to copy and import an image. The program works well with AOL Instant Messenger, with a setting to create buddy icons and export them directly to the IM software. However, the trial version is severely limited, restricting the ability to save icons and test them in a real-world environment. Despite this flaw, we think the program may be of use to home computer users who want to customize their own icons, but don’t need professional-level graphics power.

Editing your icons can be one of the best ways of giving your desktop and PC a really individual feel.

Microsoft has always provided some pretty uninspiring icons for all Windows releases and this program is aimed at giving them an extra touch of class. The good thing about IconEdit is that it accepts a huge range of icons formats from ICO, ICL, NIL, EXE and DLL to GIF, TIFF, BMP, and JPEG. It’s also extremely easy to use even if the interface is a bit bland. Normally icon sizes are 32×32 pixels, 16×16 and in some rare cases, 48×48 for really big ones. The different size ranges require different tools to edit them effectively and IconEdit2 allows you to do so with speed and a touch of finesse even if you’re no Picasso. The interface is similar to Window’s own Paint application and the program allows you to modify desktop shortcuts and folder icons as well as substitute your own images instead of the default ones. You can also use it to create convincing Avatars that can be used with IM clients and forum sites. Probably the nicest feature for an imaging novice is the option to create a “transparent” background for any image or icon which usually takes longer in other similar apps.

This is an excellent icon editor that’s simple to use but gives you just enough creative scope to make some really natty icons.
