IconFilter

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Although its interface is clunky, this free application does a sufficiently speedy job of extracting icons from executable or BMP files. IconFilter allows you to browse a file directory from its main program window, select files, and save them in either ICO, CUR, or BMP formats. If needed, you also can create a Web page with images. Yet during testing we couldn't see how this feature was useful, as BMP images are too heavy for Web publishing. Some drawbacks include the program's inability to save in either GIF or JPEG formats, and limited color options allow you to save only in 8 bit or 24 bit. Extracted icons can't be resized or edited. Users looking for a tool on a budget may find this limited yet useful program handy, yet for bigger tasks IconFilter may not stand up to the challenge.
