Editors' Review

RealWorld Graphics' Cursor Editor is a nifty free app that you can use to create and edit special Windows cursors, including both static and animated designs. Drag-and-drop functionality, built-in drawing tools and image filters, correction capabilities, and support for sophisticated image-handling features such as layers and arbitrary selections give it capabilities we've usually seen only in large graphics packages that typically have correspondingly large prices. It can create custom icons, too.

A full Windows installer includes an optional component to support translations via community-made language packs, which we appreciate as a feature but declined to install. The clean and basic but well-designed interface opens with a full range of online tutorials in the main window, which together with a fully indexed and searchable Help file make it easy to take advantage of this program's many capabilities. You can create an optional free account from the interface, which offers yet more assistance with features like translations. We tried the Animated Water Drop cursor, which was fun, for a while. But that's the beauty of Cursor Editor: it's easy to create, modify, and save cursors until you find "keepers." We like its cool plug-ins, too, especially the fractal generator. It even accepts homemade plug-ins.

RealWorld Cursor Editor is freeware and works in Windows editions 2000 to 7. It installs desktop icons without asking but is otherwise completely well mannered. It has the capability to add numerous custom cursor effects that can be as easy or sophisticated as you like, and we recommend it to all users.

    "The only free one out there"

    April 07, 2013   |   By tomysshadow

    Version: RealWorld Cursor Editor 2012.1

    Pros

    I'm pretty certain this is the only free cursor creator, and it does exactly what it says. Helped me convert a PNG image to my mouse cursor.

    Cons

    The layout and user interface is a bit strange and doesn't have much context, but if you read the manual you can figure it out.

    Summary

    It could be better, but since it's the only software that can do this, I think it's pretty good.

    "Works well for me"

    August 30, 2012   |   By theshrine

    Version: RealWorld Cursor Editor 2012.1

    Pros

    Works great.

    Cons

    A bit of a learning curve.

    Summary

    I like this editor. I watched it on Youtube for instructions. I put a halo around my cursor so it would be easier to find when using my laptop under harsh lighting.
