Editors' Review

+

Almost anyone who dabbles in customizing a computer eventually wants to create her own icons. This simple tool provides a fast way to change ordinary digital pictures into Windows icons. The interface is extremely simple--all a user has to do is drop a file into the main window, and select the desired icon size.

Users can also add a transparent color layer or compress the output. The software supports most common graphic file formats, including BMP, GIF, and JPEG. With little flash or advanced features, this free software does its one thing well, and we would recommend it to computer users who are starting the process of personalizing their desktops.

"Good Product"

January 05, 2013  |  By nnara530

 |  Version: Easy Picture2Icon 3.0

Pros

Easy to Use
Produces decent clarity icons
Provision for 16x16, 32x32, 48x48 sizes

Cons

Default option compress does not work. That may be the reason others have complained here. Fit option works perfectly
The save dialogue box is always saving as 48x48 when all the options are checked [it would be better if this tool adds a suffix with the sizes and produces individual images for various sizes selected]

Summary

Its a great and simple tool. Not sure whether it is actively developed.

"Does not work properly."

September 05, 2011  |  By chrisausten

 |  Version: Easy Picture2Icon 3.0

Pros

***none***

Cons

Does not work properly.

Summary

I don't understand the people who say it "does the job" - it does not!....Perhaps they don't realize what a proper icon is supposed to be. A proper icon must have a transparent background, which is why this thing fails. I tried this applet about two years ago with Vista, it didn't work then and it doesn't work now with Win7. I tried to make a icon with the "transparent" button checked and with it unchecked - I also tried using all types of images (png,jpg,bmp etc.) - non of it worked. The finished icon should have a transparent background - not black. There is NO combination of settings or images that works properly - it fails.

"Clean and Simple, but .ico Compatibility Issues"

December 06, 2010  |  By TigerCatBrandon

 |  Version: Easy Picture2Icon 3.0

Pros

A very nice simple interface to make Icon files

Cons

Windows can see and use the icons, but other programs I tested it with (Icon Sushi and Object Dock) could not see them.

Summary

It is a nice program that has all the basic features you could want including setting a transparent color. You just load a picture and save it as an icon file. I did it with a full-sized photo and the pic came out nicely as an icon. It also looks and works well in windows XP.

Unfortunately, this is tarnished by the fact that icon files it saves came out blank if used with Object Dock. This is makes me concerned that it could have other compatibility problems (such as showing up in programs where you load up files and it represents them as icons). I also found that I couldn't open Icon files made in Easy Picture2Icon in Icon Sushi (a competing Icon file making program).

I cannot complain about the simple useful interface. It does it's job. Unfortunately, having compatibility trouble with can pose trouble now or in the long run.

I found Icon Sushi to have more features (Including making a one-file Icon Library Windows can use) and the .ico it made it did not have the compatibility problems.
