Windows Icon Editor Publisher's description:
Windows Icon Editor provides great opportunities for working with Windows 8 and Windows Vista icons.
Vista Icons introduce a new style of iconography that brings a higher level of detail and sophistication to Windows imagery. First, the style of Windows Aero-style icons is more realistic than illustrative, but not quite photorealistic. The icons are symbolic images - they should look better than photorealistic. Second, icons have a maximum size of 256 x 256, making them suitable for high-DPI displays. These high-resolution icons allow for high visual quality in list views with large icons. Finally, wherever practical, fixed document icons are replaced by thumbnails of the content, making documents easier to identify and find. Thus, Windows Icon Editor is a beeline to refining the visuals of your program and making it more communicative for users.
A picture of a maximum size of 256 x 256 to be used as an icon, in principle, is supported by XP, yet such an icon occupies 400Kb of disk space, which is far more than standard 25Kb of an XP icon. ArtIconsPro has again found a way to cast off these shackles: Windows Icon Editor uses advanced PNG compression to save images without losses and supports semitransparent images with 8bit alpha channel. That technology reduces the size of an icon only, leaving the quality invariable.
Windows Icon Editor will help you to obtain the modern Windows 8 look. All you need is just to redesign your program's most prominent icons to use the Aero-style. From this time onwards Vista Icons crafted by Windows Icon Editor will strongly impact users' overall impression of your programs' visual design. Windows Icon Editor will improve the usability of your software by making programs, objects, and actions easier to identify and find.
