"Fine App, don't know an alternative"

January 03, 2008  |  By dasoe

 |  Version: Iconographer X 2.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I used Iconographer X on 10.4 PPC and now started carefully trying it on a 10.5 Intel. Until now it seems to work without problems.
For me Iconographer has nothing to do with favicons, which are simple to create. The great thing of the Appp is, that you create your system icon for any File or Application a very flexible way: You can create different sizes for the Icon (let's say a big Verison - more detailed, with text and a small Version - simpler, without text), each size with own Mask (Alpha Channel). Then you save it in a file and see the result: Depending on your display preferences, OS X chooses the appropriate icon size. Fine, but it gets better: You can also create Windows icons for 95/2000/XP (For this software has not been continued for some good time, there unfortunately is no support for the bigger Vista Icons).
So when I create a Flash Game and burn it on a CD for both Mac and Windows, Iconographer helps me to make it look professional with perfect Icons.

I am very sorry that Iconographer has not been continued. I do not know an alternative, so I keep on using it - it is a great piece of software.

"Good work."

Summary

We really need support open/drop icon variations. This is an extreme limitation and is very easy to implement. If you need help implementing this, simply open up the icns Resorcerer template - it makes it very simple.

But otherwise, this is a great icon editing application. The amount of icon formats that can be imported/exported is amazing.

Simply the best icon editor there is - on Mac and beyond! A few small flaws don't change the picture!

"A Welcome Update For An Old Favourite"

July 09, 2003  |  By Mr Tea

 |  Version: Iconographer X 2.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Nice to see this. It's a great tool for cross platform icon creation and editing. The one missing feature that I would really like to see is the ability to export/import paired icons and masks to and from photoshop layers, so that, for example, a thumnail icon and it's mask can be imported from or saved to a single photoshop file. Otherwise, top marks!

BTW - where is the old VersionTracker feature that allowed posters to delete their own posts if they had second thoughts or wanted to amend a review. (Hint for you there, theBettsBro Inc.) I really miss that.
