Editors' Review

+
Whether you're a serious theme builder or a Desktop dabbler, this colorful and pleasant icon editor provides all the tools you need. IconCool Icon Editor displays images as grids of cells, each cell representing a pixel. You can preview icons in many standard sizes and color depths. Editing options include rotation, drawing, and cropping. The program displays an easy-to-use color palette at the bottom of the main window. By clicking on the palette with the left and right mouse buttons, you can keep two colors of ink handy. You can easily create and edit animated icons and view them against various background colors. As a nice bonus, the program can send buddy icons to AIM. But it does have shortcomings. It doesn't let you close an image without closing the whole program, and you can't have multiple windows open at once. Still, with its powerful feature set and elegant design, IconCool Editor will appeal to users of all levels of expertise.

"Crashes on windows XP. The makers should be ashamed."

December 20, 2010  |  By PerfectCellX

 |  Version: IconCool Icon Editor 5.86 build 90318

Pros

The program crashed right away on a standard windows XP computer. Give me a break. There's nothing good I can say about this program except the sales pitch sounded good.

Cons

Like I said, this program wouldn't even load up due to bugs in the software. It blows my mind why any reputable company would release a program that crashes for so many of its users. Just read the other reviews on this product.

Summary

This company was stupid and irresponsible for releasing software that CLEARLY crashes for no reason. Sadly there really aren't any other good choices for converting images into icons : (

"Does not work even on Vista"

December 18, 2009  |  By georgenada

 |  Version: IconCool Icon Editor 5.86 build 90318

Pros

Nothing - it doesn't work.

Cons

The program does not even start on Vista. Seeing from all the other people with similar problems with XP, I'd say it simply doesn't work.

Summary

Don't bother downloading, the program does not even start on Vista. Seeing from all the other people with similar problems with XP, I'd say it simply doesn't work.

"DOESN'T RUN - CAN'T FULLY TEST"

October 26, 2009  |  By greigner

 |  Version: IconCool Icon Editor 5.86 build 90318

Pros

Installer works

Cons

Program doesn't run when installed on Windows XP Professional (a.k.a. the most popular operating system of all time). Program opens, then freezes with only title bar visible (albeit unusable).

Summary

Testing not possible due to lack of software functionality. Software doesn't run properly.
