QTam Bitmap to Icon

In this unregistered version, you can't input GIFs or JPEGs, and you can convert only up to three files at a time.

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

With so few features and an interface only a mother could love, this image-conversion program is hardly worth the 22 bills requested. QTam Bitmap to Icon helps you convert images into ICO files. This trial version lets you convert only three files in a batch, and only BMP format is allowed. Even if this were remedied in the paid version, the program doesn't offer you much else, as only 16- and 256-color formats are supported. Though you can select among three standard icon sizes, you can't create a custom size. You can, however, crop images or apply automasking. Yet the program doesn't allow you to select an output path for your converted files. All files are automatically stored in the program's main folder. The largest bugaboo for us is the program's many, many screens, which require you to break your finger clicking through each to start converting. All the options scattered among these screens could have fit comfortably into one or two--but the designer's approach just slows down the process. Better options are out there, and many are freeware. Though we'd love to support QTam, a lot of design work has yet to be done before it's a powerful program.
