Editors' Review

If we told you that Tomatosoft's Free Ico Converter converts image files like JPEGs into ICO files, would you think that was cool? Suppose we said Free Ico Converter lets you convert images into an icon you can use in Windows? We thought that would get your attention! ICO is the Windows icon file format. Free Ico Converter converts JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs, or BMPs that are 256x256 pixels or smaller into ICOs. It doesn't install new icons in Windows; rather it creates the image files you need to replace existing icons or use in new applications. We ran Free Ico Converter v1.4 in 64-bit Windows 7.

Free Ico Converter's download included numerous additional apps (they pay the bills), which we declined due to test restrictions, though one includes a tree donation for gentle persuasion. Free Ico Converter is streamlined, which translates into fast and easy to use. We could add files by dragging and dropping or by browsing with Select File(s) or Batch Mode buttons. Multiple files can be packed into one ICO file, too. There's one option, Always on Top. Free Ico Converter's 256x256 pixel limit can be a bit of a pain since you can't tell image dimensions by file size. In the end we had to resize images just to avoid the program's error messages. But Free Ico Converter did finally convert a 35KB JPEG into a 56KB ICO.

Free Ico Converter is a fairly specialized tool that works fast but requires some preparation, especially for batch processing. We wish it handled larger images or let you select portions (maybe with a preset tool), but then resizing images is the easy part. Converting them into icon images is Free Ico Converter's job.

"Good, once I was able to download it"

March 27, 2014  |  By maawolfe36

 |  Version: Ico Converter 1.4

Pros

The program seems to work as intended. I wanted a program to convert png and jpg files to ico so I could customize my laptop, and that's exactly what this does. It's very basic, which to me is a pro because I don't need it to do anything more than convert icons.

Cons

Took a bit of creative thinking to be able to download it. Chrome blocked the download because it thinks the program is "malicious" but I still wanted to download it because I trust things from Cnet. Eventually I just used Firefox and the download worked fine. Some users might not like how basic the program is, and it would be nice if you could resize pictures in the program itself, but it's a simple fix: just use Photoshop, Paint, or whatever other program you like to resize your photos to the correct dimensions before converting.

Summary

Very good at what it does, and it does nothing else. If you want a full editing suite for your icons, look elsewhere, but if you want something that's easy and simple and will get the job done, look no further. The only reason this isn't a 5-star rating is because it took a while to figure out how to download it.

Pros

Converts different types of image format in to ICO format in an easiest and quicker way. Output quality of the image is quite good.

Using this tool it is not possible to convert large size image file into Ico format. Only one image at a time can be converted into ico format.
