Need to make icons on the go? Look no further than IcoFX Portable. This lightweight program packs a well-designed interface and plenty of features into a package that will fit on your USB drive. This program would be pretty great even if it weren't small enough to carry around with us, but its portability makes it a real stand-out.

IcoFX Portable has an attractive, intuitive appearance that will be easy to navigate for anyone who's used a graphics program of any sort, even Microsoft Paint. When users create a new icon, the program has them set the dimensions and the color preferences, ranging from 1-bit to 32-bit color. From there, all the design tools are the old standbys: a color palette, pencil, paint brush, filler, eraser, lines, shapes, and so on. The workspace can be magnified up to 10,000 percent, making it easy to work on the details of even the smallest icons. IcoFX Portable also has a batch-processing tool that lets you create icons from images, create images from icons, or extract icons from resources. There's an array of special effects, including blurring, embossing, color adjustment, sharpening, drop shadows, and many more. IcoFX Portable has an online Help file that is well-written and thorough. Overall, we were very impressed with the program's features and ease of use. It's hard to believe that all of this is contained in a free, portable program!

IcoFX Portable installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program.
