Editors' review

With four extremely intuitive icon-processing utilities, Microangelo Toolset works like the Swiss Army knife of icon and cursor manipulation. Its Studio and Animator components let you create and edit icons and cursors, while the Explorer and Librarian components help you find and manage icons on your system. For producing high-quality custom icons and cursors quickly, it's hard to beat this top-rated utility.

The program includes image-editing features such as effects, filters, rotation, and cropping, as well as a huge color palette. Each component performs specific functions, but it might be less intimidating to first-time users if they were bundled in one interface. The Studio/Animator and Explorer/Librarian combinations seem ripe for integration into two tools. The extensive help files, which now include specific valuable information about creating icons for Windows Vista, are quite beneficial for users who need to familiarize themselves with the program's many features.

There aren't step-by-step wizards for novices, but the addition of project templates in version 6 make it easier to create the full icon sets you need. Also lacking is an uninstall icon, so to remove it you have to go through the Control Panel. Nevertheless, would-be designers willing to learn and power users alike should appreciate the wide range of Microangelo's functionality.

    "There are Very few companies I "Hate" This is one."

    February 22, 2011   |   By FunnyX01

    Version: Microangelo Toolset 6.10.0071

    Pros

    Decent Software, too bad the company isn't better.

    Cons

    Horrible lack of moral ethics company.

    Summary

    Don't buy this software if you are worried about getting ripped off. Here is what happened to me.

    I bought Microangelo 5.5 it was expensive... A little more then I'm comfortable paying, but I liked the way it worked and said "oh well".
    So after getting the e-mail thanking me for the purchase with the link to download the software. I downloaded and installed it, I couldn't have been happier with it. Least for a little less then 1 year. after about a year I upgraded my computer because my old computer's hard drive crashed and was unrecoverable. So attempting to get my new computer stocked back up with all my essential programs which were present on my original PC I remember that I forgot to install Microangelo toolset. So I attempt to goto re-download it via the e-mail they sent to me thanking me for my purchase. I click the link which redirects to their 'purchasing' website i received a error page which read:
    " Could not locate this order number (RE########) and download authorization code. Please verify the Download URL address provided in your email confirmation. Be sure to provide the entire address including the ?order=REnnnn&dlid=nnnn information."

    First reaction was "What the?!", assuming it was a I e-mailed the customer support. It turns out they had changed their customer login site. They gave me the proper site and I login to see that my account doesn't show that I purchased this software. So yet again I e-mail customer support asking for assistance to allow me to continue to use their software. I waited, and waited, and waited. 3-4 Weeks pass by without even a "we're looking into it" e-mail. So extremely frustrated I write the following e-mail to their customer support.

    From: Me
    To: service@eclipsit.com

    I purchased a copy of microangelo toolset, now when I goto my download page only an upgrade is available... this is the second time I have tried contacting you. Please replay asap... This will be the last time I try contacting you directly, before I am forced to retrieve what is legally mine through other means. I have been more then a little patient by providing ample time for you to respond
    within a professional amount of time.

    This was their Reply to me the very next day.

    From: Eclipsit Customer Service service@eclipsit.com

    If you have purchased Microangelo 5.5, then you are only able to upgrade to Microangelo Toolset 6.0. We do not support, sell, nor host version 5.5 any longer.

    So Please. Don't let this happen to you. I find myself a little less then a year later without the software I purchased from this company.
