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.

"Super toolkit. Some errors in XP color though. Best to work in true colour mode."

 |  Version: Microangelo Toolset 6.0.3

Pros

These programs have a fantastic user interface. All you have to do is pick what you want to design (Icon, cursor, animated cursor), design, and save. The rest is allready done. You can also add transparency.

Cons

Dont add too many icon sizes in xp color, as it crashes.

After installing Vista, I searched for an icon editor to create Vista icons and found Microangelo. Installed both the 64 bit on my PC, and the 32 bit on my laptop. Very stable. I was creating great-looking icons minutes after installing this 5 star program. Top notch software!!
