Icon creation has evolved. Use the industry standard to create, extract, convert, manage Windows?and Macintosh?icons like never before. It supports all existing icon formats up to Windows?Vista (256x256 PNG-compressed icons) and OS-X with alpha channel. IconWorkshop is the first icon editor to support creation of the future 256x256 icons for Tiger (to be implemented soon by Apple). You can also easily convert icons from one system to another and transfer them using MacBinary files. Use drag & drop to easily create attractive icons from various ready-to-use image objects in seconds. A pack of 150 image objects is included in the product. Many others available for download. A powerful editor permits to create icons using many tools including numerous filters and effects. Once an image is created, add several images formats in one click (automated hi-quality image creation in different sizes and color depths). Create icons from images with alpha transparency (PNG, PSD, JPEG 2000, BMP, GIF...). Create PNG, JPEG 2000 and Web-optimized GIF images from icons. If you work with Photoshop? you can import PSD images with layers or use our plug-in to transfer images in memory and make your icon in a few clicks. Numerous batch procedures have been implemented in IconWorkshop to automatically perform operations on a large number of files. For example, you can create icons from a set of PNG files (ICO files are created). You can also automatically convert several icons between Macintosh?and Windows?OS in seconds. Use a powerful librarian to easily manage all your icon and library (ICL) files. A file explorer permits to browse disks and work with files (images, icons, programs...). This advanced explorer displays files in thumbnail preview mode. Developped in C++ using MFC, IconWorkshop features a fully integrated workspace. An exhaustive help system has been implemented including getting started lessons, how-to procedures and the reference manual.
