Take your favorite pictures and convert them into original icons easily with this icon editor. Image Icon Converter helps you edit digital images into icons, and also does the reverse, transferring icons into digital images. A step-by-step wizard walks you through the process. You can create icons as small as 16x16 pixels or as large as 128x128 pixels, with color depth ranging from 16 bit to 32 bit. The program supports a wide range of file formats, including BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, TGA, TIFF, and PCX, and also can use screenshot images. An image editor contains most of the basic functions, such as rotate, crop and flip, as well as basic image effects such as color balance, brightness, contrast, sharpen, and soften. Some drawbacks include the program's inability to support batch conversions. While the interface is functional, it isn't the most aesthetically pleasing. Overall, this basic program is a solid bet for beginner icon designers.

Although the program has some nifty features and can convert a variety of file formats, I prefer freeware Imagicon Version 2.4. Although the source images in Imagicon are limited to BMP, JPG and PNG, all you have to do is drag and drop the source file and, presto!, you've got an icon.

However, users who need more flexibily will find Icon Image Convert a more refined product. For $20, it's affordfable.


The interface is sloppy and poorly designed (I designed user interfaces and software for a living) and this one needs to cleaned up and functions need to be grouped and labeled more neatly. It's simply not intuitive.

I am not sure WHAT everyone is doing or talking about when this program is NOT that great. It lacks Batch Conversion, Icon Quality is poor, does NOT handle Alpha Transparency correctly, etc, etc... There are other programs just as small that do ALOT more and ALOT better so they really need to fix this one up. It has NO MAJOR FLAWS but it offers so little with a non-intuitive user interface so I am NOT sure why so many people are downloading it...
