Any computer user who completely wants to customize their desktop has to figure out how to change and create icons. This bare-bones program for designing icons doesn't have as many features as some of its rivals, but does offer a straightforward interface and approach that average users will likely appreciate. It provides a basic set of graphics tools for building icons from scratch, as well as a handful of visual effects. Alternately, users can use the screen-capture mode to copy and import an image. The program works well with AOL Instant Messenger, with a setting to create buddy icons and export them directly to the IM software. However, the trial version is severely limited, restricting the ability to save icons and test them in a real-world environment. Despite this flaw, we think the program may be of use to home computer users who want to customize their own icons, but don't need professional-level graphics power.
