CursorWorkshop fully supports alpha channel in RGB cursor images. Use drag and drop to easily make attractive cursors from various ready to use image objects in seconds. A powerful editor permits to create cursors using various tools, filters and effects. Once an image is created, add several images formats in one click.

Use Photoshop and Illustrator plugins to transfer images directly in memory and make your cursors in a few clicks. Batch procedures have been implemented to automatically perform operations on a large number of files. For example, you can create several CUR/ANI cursors from a set of PNG files.

This explorer displays files in thumbnail preview mode. Learn how to use the product using a comprehensive Help which contains hundreds of topics including getting started lessons, how to procedures and features reference (150 topics). The product features a fully integrated workspace and is compatible with Windows Vista.
It has an easy to understand interface, great product I actually just download it to make a personal set of cursors but it was better than I expected, I would purchase it if I was always making cursors.
the Trial is actually less than 30 days (unlike what it claims) It was more like a week or 10 days before the saving function was disabled.
